Halo Movie is Officially Dead

Neill Blomkamp, the director attached to the Halo feature film, officially made it clear to Creativity-Online.com that the Halo film “as it is now” will not ever be released.

“The film is entirely dead. In the configuration it was in. Whatever happens with that movie, assuming that movie gets made, will be a totally different configuration. It’s not so much me as the entire vessel sank. Basically, it was a combination of; there were two studios involved that weren’t getting along in the process of making it, Universal and Fox. That kind of stuff happens, it’s a fragile industry. So the film collapsed at the end of last year, and it’s been dead, ever since then. I’ll be curious to see what happens.”

Perhaps, now that the game has made millions Fox and Universal will pull together and try to bring more focus to the franchise. Until then, we’re left with bright ideas and cool looking live action marketing clips.
The rights to the Halo movie franchise were bought up by 20th Century Fox and Universal Pictures back in 2005, but the studios backed off a year later after Peter Jackson (producer) hired Blomkamp (first time director) to direct the full length feature with a budget well into the stratosphere.
