Scott Stuber has come aboard to produce and develop the video game adaptation Gears of War.

Last October, we reported that New Line Cinema put the project in turnaround, although it still does not have a studio home at this time. Scott Stuber does have a first-look deal with Universal Pictures, which may be a potential suitor.

The third-person shooter video game, which debuted in 2006, centers on Delta Squad soldiers trying to fend off the Locust Horde, an evil species of creatures that emerged from the Earth's surface.

No writer or director is attached to the project at this time. Stuart Beattie was the last writer who took a crack at the script, but it isn't known if the producers and Epic Games, the company behind the video game, plan on starting from scratch or not.

Scott Stuber recently produced the comedy hits Identity Thief and Ted, and has the action-thriller 47 Ronin hitting theaters this Christmas.
