Halo Movie: 'We’re Always Open To Doing That' - 343

NowGamer: Halo 4 is pushing the series' live action angle with Forward Unto Dawn, but 343 is still interested in making a Halo movie. (343 Industries, Culture, Halo, Halo 4, Microsoft, Xbox 360)

Needs to happen one day - just don't throw $500 million at it, simple.

And not Michael Bay.

Only if the director is a right fit and understands the true Halo story. It's a bit risky and certainly costly.

Holding off still seems like the best idea for a few more years.

I think instead of an actual movie starring Master Chief, they should make movies based on the Halo series books. Such as Sgt. Johnson in Contact Harvest (which was awesome), and I remember a collection of small stories in a really large Halo book where a few of them were quite interesting enough to be standalone installments. A Halo movie doesn't sound bad, it's just that making one based around the video games might get gimped, and I'd rather see something from the book format be converted to movie. Especially since books dish out more information than a game can.

The Halo movie was never going to "star" the Master Chief. That has been stated time and time again since the beginning

So if thiers no Master Chief in the film then it's a movie about alien killing mankind off cause without chief thier pretty much screwed & a movie like that is not worth my price of admision

Am I the only one who dosen't really like the live action stuff.

I'd rather have a epic story trailer....WHICH WE STILL DON'T HAVE

Series I feel like they focus too much on the live action stuff and it if there was going to be a movie, judgsing by the live stuff they do, it's not the direction I would want it to head in.

I would love to see a film one day where Master Chief would be like he is in the games and the films revolves around the characters that support him...lets face it making Chief a talkative wise cracking badass in the films would be off putting but not seeing him in them as the main character would be depressing.

Relax, we'll get a story trailer before launch.
They just recently release a bunch of media about the game, so I'd expect a story trailer around the time when the forward unto dawn vids start hitting the web.

Microsoft should just handle it themselves, a big budget movie is 150-200 million, which is chump change to them. They could even do a web series or whatever else they wanted, Halo has such a fantastic lure and its ripe with amazing stories, I really get into the expanded Halo universe.

they won't find a better director than Neill Blomkamp for the film. He fits perfectly with the halo style and design.

anyone but they should stay away from the likes of bay and shyamalan!

Uwe Boll sounds right. ;P

Well his next film "Elysium" has a ring world like halo, and it looks like it has that good action from reports http://www.iwatchstuff.com/...

I'm just so frustrated that the guy actually began building the stuff and equipment for his Halo movie, and the studios just backed out.
