HALO, the wildly popular video games that follow Master Chief, a cybernetically-enhanced human super-soldier, and his artificial intelligence (AI) companion, Cortana as they aide future humanity in battling the Covenant, a theocratic alliance of alien races, may be coming to the big screen much sooner than we expected.
A Halo movie... and Spielberg directing it ?
I think it's a good idea.
It appears that Spielberg is so blown away by writer Stuart Beattie's take on the game in his script entitled HALO THE FALL OF REACH that he wanted to make a movie out of it. Or so i've read.
Recently, sites have been reporting that the HALO project is completely dead after it halted under the guidance of Peter Jackson and director Neil Blomkamp with 20th Century Fox distributing.
But with Spielberg now in active negotiations(and it appears that he's sitting on the producer's chair also),
this shit is about to get real!
