Gears of War movie won’t include The Rock

54 second read


Some sad news coming out of Comic Con over the weekend.

Apparently Len Wiseman, the films director, feels that The Rock is tarnished by that abysmal excuse of a movie, Doom, and therefore won’t be involved in the Gears of War movie.

This makes me sad as if you asked me to name a muscle bound meathead who would fit the Gears world perfectly I think The Rock would have been right up there.

That and I actually like the guy as an actor, he’s over the top and slightly ridiculous looking but he seems to relish in it and puts in entertaining performances.

Lets all accept it now, Gears of War isn’t going to be a hard hitting cinematic masterpiece. It’s a skiet, skop and donner in the truest sense of the phrase.

    How the hell do you rate him as a Actor?

    I don’t think I’ve seen any movie with him in that was even halfway decent?

  • Awe 🙁 I was cheering for him, The rock is Awesome, Stand Tall was a good movie of his, as well as Gridiron gang

  • Wesley

    I thought he played a good role in Walking Tall.. Or maybe it was because Johnny Knoxville ….

  • Wesley

    There is this one line in Doom where tells a dude to SHUT THE FUDGE UP! Cracks me up every time…

    Its like his saying…. CAN YOU SMELL WHAT THE ROCK IS COOKING!

  • WitWolfyZA

    would’ve been funny to see The Rock giving some Locust scum “The Peoples elbow” lol

  • spl0it

    Can you smell what the rock is cooking? 😉

  • Reaver

    He was great in the Rundown, and I would easily have pegged him as the next big action star. And then he sold out to Disney…

  • But… The Rock would never make a good Cole anyway. That’s the only character they have to get right, after all.

  • I think they’ll just use the original guy … after all Cole was modeled after himself…

  • The Rock was actually really cool in the movie “Be Cool”, where he played that super-gay wanna be actor, but he did a good job with the role.
