Halo Movie Paused
Posted 08.13.09 by Ryan
Despite a spec script written by G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra screenwriter Stuart Beattie that Steven Spielberg apparently loves, Microsoft told Kotaku that the movie is still "on hold":
We're glad there's still a lot of enthusiasm in the entertainment industry surrounding the idea of a Halo movie. That said, the Halo feature film remains on hold as we focus on projects like Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach.
Beattie told iF Magazine that in order for a Halo movie to be made that Microsoft needs a "a powerful filmmaker to give us those keys." Despite Spielberg's apparent interest, Microsoft say they have "nothing further to share with respect to plans regarding a Halo movie."
Looks like despite the players interested in Halo, the movie version is on pause.
