Chris Morgan, the screenwriter for the upcoming Gears of War movie, wants to cast The Rock aka Dwayne Johnson as Marcus Fenix; because he can “play the tough guy, but he can also play the nuanced, sensitive funny sad moments as well.” This title is set to hit theaters in 2010.

While you may think thespians such as Sean Penn, Mickey Rourke, and Bruce Willis would do well in the role, Morgan actually likes Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, he told MTV.
