Master Chief’s Movie Not in Production October 31, 2006Posted by dpcough in halo, Microsoft Games.
Since the Halo movie was announced a long time ago that Microsoft agreed to an agreement with Universal and Fox to produce the movie Halo fans everywhere were ecstatic with energy. Now though it seems unlikely we will see the Halo universe on the big screen in a long time.
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.
I blame it on the hiring of director Neill Blomkamp, he is an unknown director. If Peter Jackson was it would of most likely continued, unfortnately it is at halt. I doubt we’ll see this for a while. We can only hope it comes soon.
