It will be conducted jointly by two heavyweights of American cinema: Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks”
We all know the saga and great attempt by Neill Blomkamp way, way back in 2005, to start the Halo Trilogy Movies. Blomkamp worked for an exhaustive five months on the film. They constructed weapons, costumes and a Warthog. They produced all of those cool Halo shorts. A la Hollywood, Everything collapsed. For reason’s never fully exaplined to our satisfaction the deal fell through. Peter Jackson then moved Blomkamp off the project and of course we got District 9. Neil is quoted as saying that he is “creatively interested” in Halo, but that he “does not wish to return to the project after working on it for so long and watching it collapse.” – source iMDB Halo Movie Trivia.

After the collapse the script started appearing on various websites, of note… was the LatinoReview.com then “kind of” verified as part of the actual script but not the complete script by this article Halo Film Script A Convincing Adaptation, from the Rampancy.net site.

If Halo4 sparks a huge interest in the Halo series again perhaps 343i would resurrect the project. Remember the successful Tomb Raider movies came years after the popularity of the video games waned. (BTW we think Angelina Jolie would make an awsome Cortana!!) Here are some of the now classic Neill BlomKamp productions for the Halo Movie. The production Quality Rocks! it would’ve been a great movie. Operative phrase… “would’ve been”, enjoy!.
