The man behind 'Live Free or Die Hard' and 'Underworld' franchise will be directing New Line Cinema's video game adaptation film 'Gears of War'.

Known for his work in "Underworld" franchise, Len Wiseman has delivered a blockbuster hit with the fourth installment of "Die Hard" series making "Live Free or Die Hard" to be the most successful movie from the franchise. Having proved his talent in tackling the action genre feature film, it would be right to trust the filmmaker with another high-octane action film, and that just exactly what New Line Cinema do.

The husband of the "Underworld" star, Kate Beckinsale, has recently been signed by the studio to helm their latest adaptation film "Gears of War". The 35-year-old has long been rumored to be chosen as the man behind the camera for the action film, but the confirmation on the matter has just come out awhile back. Apart from taking the director seat, in bringing the hit video game to the big screen, he will team up with "Wanted (2008)" scribbler, Chris Morgan with whom he has also work together for "Shell Game", to develop the story.

"Gears of War" centers its story on a band of elite Delta Squad soldiers as they are fighting to reclaim planet Sera from the invasion of alien known as the Locust Horde in order to save the planet's surviving human inhabitants. The movie scheduled for 2010 release is based on the tactical third-person shooter video game of the same name developed by Epic Games and published by Microsoft Game Studios.
