The lights are on
Back in 2007, New Line nabbed the rights to a Gears of War movie. Four years later, and we're hearing reports that the project is deep in development hell. We'd like to do what we can to help, so I put together this list of casting suggestions for the possibly upcoming film.
Marcus Fenix - Dave Bautista
This former WWE star left wrestling for Hollywood last year, and he's a dead ringer for the muscular lead. Plus, the amount of emotion and acting required for Marcus seems to be right at Dave's skill level.
Augustus Cole - Lester Speight
Former football player Lester Speight is the actual voice-over actor for former thrashball player Augustus Cole. Casting choices don't get much easier than this.
Damon Baird - Paul Walker
Richard Prescott - Bryan Cranston
Queen Myrrah - Lena Headey
Jace Stratton - Ludacris
Anya Stroud - Scarlett Johansson
Samantha Byrne - Elsa Pataky
Dominic Santiago - That Biker Dude From Raising Arizona
Adam Fenix - Iron Man Jeff Bridges
Dizzy Wallin - True Grit Jeff Bridges
Clayton Carmine - Kenny McCormick
