According to IGN, our old pal Cliffy B (design director for the Gears of War series) told reporters that New Line Cinema has slashed the budget for the Gears of War movie. Things are looking troubled for the movie adaptation of the popular Xbox 360 series, and we can only hope that we’ll still see a quality movie out of all of this. The world doesn’t need another BloodRayne.
New Line Cinema taking the proverbial chainsaw bayonet to the budget doesn’t really come as a surprise. The Halo movie has been indefinitely postponed due to squabbling over money and fans can do nothing but sob quietly as their hopes are curb-stomped like so many Locust.
Should we just give up on a quality video game to movie adaptation? Let us know what you think.
