Netflix will bring a series of video games "Gears of War" to the screens. The company, which bypassed competitors and won the rights to the franchise after months of negotiations, plans to make at least one feature film and one animated series based on the shooter.
It is too early to say who will be involved in the projects, but one of the candidates for the role in the film is Dave Bautista
, who does not hide his desire to play the main character.
The wrestler and actor published an old video with himself in the armor of Marcus Phoenix. Bautista is not just a fan, he previously gave the game developers consent to create a character with his appearance. Moreover, Dave once turned down a role in the action franchise "Fast and Furious", instead campaigning for Universal to make a movie based on "Gears of War". Then he failed to convince the film studio; it should be easier to agree with Netflix, because he is not a stranger to the company. Moreover, his candidacy was supported by the developer of "Gears of War" Cliff Bleszinski.
Details about the plot of the film are not disclosed. It is known that Hathaway and Hayek will play rivals who will have to join forces for a common goal.
In the book, which includes two stories, «Seesaw Monster

The project is being developed by Netflix.

» is an original horror film inspired by surrealist art and Greek mythology.
The main character of the film, a curator of a local museum, gets hooked by a charming serial killer. A fateful "romantic date" turns into a game of cat and mouse, and a completely crazy night awaits both of them.
The film will be released on the streaming service "Shudder" on December 1.
