A Little More Explanation on the Death of "Halo"

by | October 31, 2006 | Comments

First came word that Fox and Universal were washing their hands of the "Halo" movie; now we hear from Microsoft and producer Peter Jackson that the project is most definitely dead in the water … for the time being, anyway. Oh well, we’ll always have the Xbox games!

As posted at ComingSoon.net: "As was previously confirmed, we deeply regret that both Universal and Fox did not choose to move forward with financing the Halo film under the original terms of the agreement. At this time Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, along with their partner, Microsoft, have mutually agreed to postpone making a feature film based on the Halo video game universe until we can fulfill the promise we made to millions of Halo fans throughout the world that we would settle for no less than bringing a first class film to the big screen. We are fully supportive of Director Neill Blomkamp‘s vision of the film. Neill is a tremendously gifted filmmaker and his preliminary work on Halo is truly awe-inspiring. While it will undoubtedly take a little longer for Halo to reach the big screen, we are confident that the final feature film will be well worth the wait."

We shall see……
