Gears of War Movie with Dave Bautista Could Happen

Gears of War came out in 2006 and was critically and commercially acclaimed. Its chief protagonist Marcus Fenix, a buffed up dude, became an Xbox icon due to the game.

It’s been speculated that Dave Bautista, a WWE wrestler, who looks totally like Marcus Fenix and would be perfect for the role wants a Gears of War movie. He has also been bugging Universal studios for the movie but to no avail.

In an #askdave thread, a user asked “I’ve enjoyed basically all the film’s you’ve been in and was a huge fan during your WWE run. What’s your dream role? I’m hoping they ask you to play Marcus Fenix in the Gears of War movie!”

He replied that he was indeed interested in the movie and wants to do it badly. He said he has been pursuing Gears of War for years. The last Gears video game was Gears of War 4 on the Xbox One S.
