During an interview with Netflix, Spaihts expressed his excitement in tackling the Gears of War franchise:

“Gears of War is one of the all-time great action games, with vivid characters, a beautifully designed world and a combat system that drives home the lethality of war and the importance of standing by your squadmates. It wants to be cinema, and I’m thrilled to have the chance to help that happen.”

The live-action movie adaptation is only one of many Gears of War projects currently in production at Netflix in partnership with developer The Coalition. An adult animated series based on the universe of the games will follow the movie as well as other unannounced projects.

The Coalition also released a statement stating how excited it was to work with Spaihts:

“We’re thrilled to partner with Jon and the Netflix team to bring Gears of War to life. Jon is a master storyteller with a talent for creating epic science-fiction universes and he truly loves Gears of War. We couldn’t ask for a better partner to honor our franchise and deliver an authentic story to our fans.”
