Dave Bautista Has Been Seeking The Lead Role In The GEARS OF WAR Movie
Guardians of the Galaxy actor and my favorite action hero Dave Bautista has recently announced that he’s been trying to get the lead role of Marcus Fenix in the live-action adaptation of the famous video game Gears of War for years. He says that this is a dream role for him, and I didn’t have any idea why.
Last year it was announced that the Gears of War movie was moving forward with Avatar sequel screenwriter Shane Salerno. Gears of War co-creator Rod Fergusson previously talked about the film saying that it “would not be based on any actual game but instead be a new story set in the universe. That universe is the fictional planet of Sera, where a squad of beefed-up commandos living in a bombed-out postapocalyptic society battle swarms of alien creatures called Locusts.”

The film is clearly still in the early stages of development, but when the studio does choose to move it into production, I expect that they cast Bautista in the lead role, which will be super awesome. He is perfect for the role and a brilliant actor for such role in the movie.
His most current film, Hotel Artemis is out in theaters right now. It was a super movie and doing really good at the box office with a strong performance by Dave Bautista.
