XXX: RETURN OF XANDER CAGE Writer Joins Universal Studios' GEARS OF WAR Adaptation

According to a new report, xXx: Return of Xander Cage screenwriter F. Scott Frazier has signed on to pen Universal's upcoming film adaptation of Gears of War.

Universal Studios' Gears of War movie adaptation was announced back in 2016 when Microsoft agreed to sell the movie rights to the acclaimed video game series to Universal Studios and now, according to The Wrap, Gears of War has found a new screenwriter in F. Scott Frazier (Collide; xXx: Return of Xander Cage).

Shane Salerno (Armageddon, Avatar 2-5) had been attached to write the script in May of last year, but ultimately opted not to pursue the project, which opened the door for Frazier to come onboard. Gears of War will be co-produced by Dylan Clark, producer of the acclaimed Planet of the Apes trilogy, and Rod Fergusson, one of the masterminds behind Microsoft's Gears of War video game franchise and producer of the upcoming Gears 5 at The Coalition, a Microsoft development studio focused exclusively on GoW.

The first chapter of the Gears of War video game saga debuted in 2006, introducing players to the futuristic war between humans and the Locust Horde that ravaged Sera, the home planet of the series' main protagonist Marcus Fenix. Back in June, Guardians of the Galaxy and Blade Runner 2049 star Dave Bautista revealed that he would love to play Fenix, but Universal has given no updates on casting yet.
