Halo-Makers Say Movie Will Happen -- Eventually

by | October 23, 2006 | Comments

Just a few days ago came word that Universal and Fox were dropping the big-screen version of the mega-popular "Halo" video game — and now that the weekend is over, the game-makers have responded with their own plans for the flick.

From the official Bungie site: "We are disappointed that Universal and Fox wanted to significantly renegotiate the financial points of the deal. But the Halo franchise is hugely popular and our goal remains the same – to find a partner that shares our passion and will creatively collaborate with us to best represent the story and spirit of the Halo franchise. Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and the rest of the creative team are dedicated to ensuring the Halo movie becomes a reality. We are already in discussions with potential partners who recognize the value of the Halo brand and its appeal to consumers worldwide."
