After years in and out of development hell, it sounds like the much-loved "Gears of War" video game franchise may actually be making the jump from your gaming console to your Netflix home page. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming giant is set to tackle not one but two adaptations of the massively popular series, which currently includes five main games plus several spin-offs.Per THR, the Netflix deal in partnership with The Coalition includes plans for a live-action feature film adaptation, as well as an adult-oriented animated series.

"Community" is the show that keeps on giving. The show initially ran for five seasons on NBC before being canceled by the network as fans fervently fought for and supported the show. Eventually, "Community" found a home on the streaming service "Yahoo! Screen" (yeah, that was a thing) for its sixth and final season. Even after ending in 2015, fans of the show continue to champion it. The hashtag #sixseasonsandamovie is still going strong to this day, with fans hoping Dan Harmon and company stay true to the hashtag and cap the series with a feature film.

Joe and Anthony Russo's "The Gray Man" is just around the corner, featuring two characters going head to head in a life-or-death situation: former CIA agent and mercenary Court Gentry (Ryan Gosling) and his formidable ex-colleague turned villain, Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans). The plot of the film is supposed to follow the structure of a classic revenge tale, with Gentry embarking on a globe-spanning mission.

Joe and Anthony Russo's "The Gray Man" hits select theaters today before its streaming debut on Netflix on July 22, 2022. Based on the 11-book series of the same name by Mark Greaney, it stars Ryan Gosling as former CIA agent-turned-mercenary Court Gentry. He's uncovered dark secrets about the agency, and is now being hunted down by unhinged former colleague Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans).

From television directors on acclaimed shows such as "Arrested Development" and "Community" to the 2006 comedy "You, Me and Dupree" to essentially becoming the go-to directing duo for all the Marvel Cinematic Universe's biggest and most buzzworthy event films, few filmmakers can hope to match the rapid ascension of Joe and Anthony Russo.
