With Gears of War 4 on the horizon, it’s been announced that the long-gestating Gears of War movie is back in development at a new studio.
The Hollywood Reporter noted today that Universal Studios have purchased the movie adaptation rights from Microsoft, who have owned the video game rights since 2014. The movie will be produced by Scott Stuber (Central Intelligence) and Dylan Clark (Rise of the Planet of the Apes). No writer has been attached to the project yet.

Len Wiseman (A Good Day to Die Hard) signed on to direct with Kate Beckinsale (Underworld) attached to star, but both jumped off the project in 2010.
