Gears of War should be a movie or show?

Hey ok so now with Gears 5 out and we as fans keep asking for more such as a movie. I constantly go back to the actual story of G.O.W. and I would be happy with a movie as long as it was done right. But with a movie I feel that they wouldn’t be able to include everything that is important to the story. I honestly think that it should be made into a show. A show that is aired on a platform like HBO showtime Netflix or hulu. This way they have more time to go deeper into the lore and more in depth with the characters. As well with a show they would have enough source material to go through 7 seasons plus some. But with either way that they go weather it’s a movie or show they need the right cast to make it work. I love movies and shows for the storytelling and how actors portray the characters. With that said my opinions on character and actors who should play them I made my own casting list for certain rolls

Anya Stroud: Katheryn Winnick, Laurie Holden, Katie Cassidy, Amanda Seyfried, Yvonne Strahovski, Stana Katic

Marcus Fenix: Dave Bautista

Dominic Santiago: Jon huertas, Gabriel Luna,

Damon Baird: Jai Courtney, Chris Evans, Ryan Reynolds, Alan Ritchson

COLE: Lester Speight

Col. Hoffman: Michael Rooker, Stephen Lang, Jay Sanders,

LT. Kim: Jason Lee, Mark Dacascos

Anthony Carmine: Dash Mihok, Grant Gustin,

RAAM: Ron Perlman, Hafpor Bjornsson, Derek Mears Nathan Jones, Robert Maillet

Queen Myrrah: Cate Blanchett, Sigourney weaver

Some great names in your list, I would be concerned that pretty much every video game taken to film has failed and produced a terrible film, I still shudder remembering Doom


Mortal kombat was successful and true to the game. They just screwed up the sequel. Doom was terrible.

I’m gonna have to say Hoffman: Ron Perlman

Anya Stroud: Lindsay Lohan
Marcus Fenix: Vince Vaughn
Dominic Santiago: George Lopez
Damon Baird: Owen Wilson
COLE: Terry Crews
Col. Hoffman: Ian McKellen
LT. Kim: Jackie Chan
Anthony Carmine: Sean Bean
RAAM: Peter Stormare
Queen Myrrah: Angelina Jolie



Oh please no





Speaking as a fan here, not a forum mod. That is the worst list I have ever seen! Owen Wilson? Lindsay Lohan? Vince Vaughn and Linsey Lohan as the most important Gears couple?

Allow me to humbly suggest a few better pics

Anya Stroud: Yvonne Strahovski
Marcus Fenix: Batista
Dominic Santiago: Oded Fehr
Damon Baird: Anyone BUT Owen Wilson
COLE: Lester Speight
Col. Hoffman:The angry old guy the from American Chopper meme
LT. Kim: Jason Scott Lee
Anthony Carmine: @l_l_C_L_O_W_N_l
RAAM: Christopher Heyerdahl
Queen Myrrah: Bridget Regan (She is the Queen)


Yeah, there have only been two video game movies that were acceptable imo.

That’s a good list, much better than mine.


I have a passionate hatred for Owen Wilson. If he was in the movie i wouldn’t watch it.

I am sure though there is a ton of unknown actors that could also do a fantastic job.

These are the only ones i would really care about being cast.

I only know Heyerdahl’s work in Van Helsing, which is sufficient enough for me to agree that he’d be a great RAAM.

I am glad that someone knows him!

He was fantastic in Stargate Atlantis too. He didn’t do much in the Twilight movies, just stood there brooding.

It shouldn’t be anything of those. It will turn out a mess like Gears 5.
