Gears Of War movie producer Wyck Godfrey has revealed more details about the direction the movie might take when it finally arrives at some as-yet-to-be-announced point in the future.

The movie is to be helmed by Underworld director Len Wiseman and will tell a story of the survival of "those 48 hours" following Emergence Day.

A world torn asunder

"The hard part is to make [Gears of War] into something that doesn't feel like a world torn asunder and people just in battle," Godfrey said.

"I think we really want to focus on the idea of a world that's running well and then it's Emergence Day.

"Trying to tell the epic story of an alien planet that's living in a horrific environment just feels like the wrong move right now," Godfrey adds.
