Steven Spielberg Wants to Make a Halo Movie?

by Ian DeVere

Our friends at GeekTyrant have an article about Steven Spielberg being interested in making a Halo movie, which already has a script written by Stuart Beattie (actually, Stuart wrote scripts for 3 different films: Halo: Fall of Reach, Halo, Rise of the Flood, and Halo: Battle for Earth).


You may remember that some time ago, Neill Blomkamp and Peter Jackson (ring a bell?) were attacked to direct and produce the movie, respectively. In fact, Blomkamp even directed 3 shorts, called Halo: Arms Race, which you can see here:





However, Blomkamp has since then said that he would ‘probably not direct a Halo movie if it was offered to me.’


Back to Spielberg, who has apparently read the Halo: Fall of Reach script, and been blown away by it. If he really wanted to make this movie, how could it not happen? Microsoft and Steven have a long-lasting relationship (he actually presented Microsoft’s Project Natal at E3). From what we understand, Spielberg is actually in active negotiations to develop the movie.


Would you have hope in a Halo movie if Steven Spielberg was behind it? Or would you rather Neill Blomkamp be convinced to return to helm to project? Discuss it in the comments!
