Halo Movie still in Production October 31st, 2007

Who hon­estly knows what is going on with the Halo Movie adap­ta­tion at the moment? Last week Neill Blomkamp came out and stated that the movie in its cur­rent form was dead and that we shouldn’t look for­ward to a Halo Movie any time soon.

I’d seen sto­ries like this before so I was a lit­tle reluc­tant to post the news arti­cle, that and it would mean the end of this blog, which isn’t some­thing I look for­ward to. So I held on with what lit­tle hope I had left.

Seems like my hope wasn’t entirely in vain. This week Peter Jackson’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Ken Kamins spoke to Com­puter and Video games. It first out­lines the das­tardly ways that Fox and Uni­ver­sal attempted to force the film mak­ers to a less than oppor­tune deal. Most impor­tantly how­ever, he states that every­body is supremely con­fi­dent in Neill and that pro­duc­tion is still under­way and that give Halo 3’s $300 mil­lion in sales a num­ber of movie stu­dios have renewed inter­est.
