We have been hearing about a possible Gears of War movie ever since 2007. But now it appears that it is finally becoming a reality. The announcement comes directly from Rod Fergusson, studio head for The Coalition, who mentioned it during the Xbox Gears of War 4 live stream on October 5th.
Major Nelson has confirmed it here:

As you can see, the film will be developed in collaboration with Universal Studios. Producers will include Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark along with Jon Mone and Jay Ireland. Beyond that, we have no idea yet who else will be involved with the project. It is way too early to hear announcements about the cast or director. Naturally we are a long ways off from getting a potential release date as well.
But at least we are only days from the release of Gears of War 4, which will be available on October 11th. Pre-order Gears of War 4 so you can play it on release day!
