Plans for a feature film version of the Epic video game Gears of War amped up last fall and, today, Variety is reporting that Scott Stuber has come aboard the project as a producer.

Since its debut in November 2006, Gears of War has broken sales records on the Xbox 360, selling more than 4.5 million copies worldwide (it sold 3 million copies in the first 10 weeks after launch).

The game thrusts players into humankind's epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet. The story unfolds as a ragtag group of soldiers use every last ounce of strength to survive the onslaught from the forces of evil, which begins on the historic Emergence Day.

Stuber, who most recently produced films like Ted, Battleship and Identity Thief, has a first look deal with Universal Pictures, but no distributor is currently attached to Gears of War.
