Gears of War Movie Announced on Netflix Alongside Adult Animated Series


Netflix is partnering with The Coalition to develop a Gears of War movie alongside an adult animated series.

Netflix tweeted on its official account this morning, "Gears of War was released 16 years ago today and to mark the occasion, Netflix has partnered with The Coalition to adapt the @GearsofWar video game saga into a live action feature film, followed by an adult animated series — with the potential for more stories to follow!"

Series creator Cliff Bleszinski, who recently spoke with IGN Unfiltered, responded by tweeting, "Oh sh*t!"
