Len Wiseman, the husband of British beauty Kate Beckinsale and the man responsible for pouring her into skintight costumes in Underworld, is shifting into high gear. The director, who also helmed Live Free or Die Hard and who is producing the third installment of the Underworld franchise, Underworld 3: The Rise of the Lycans, has been selected by New Line to direct their feature adaptation of the Gears of War video game.
Wiseman specializes in visually thrilling, stylish action pictures. He will develop the story with writer Chris Morgan. The award-winning video game is a popular XBox 360 selection, having first bowed in November 2006. It has sold over three million copies worldwide and pits humans against creatures from the planet Locust Horde.
