Game over for Halo movie?

Both Universal and Fox Studios have pulled out of the Halo movie adaptation, citing rising movie costs and concern over the inexperience of first time director Neil Blomkamp. As the budget was rumored to be edging closer to $200 million, and Microsoft getting a lion's share of the profits, the studio execs decided it was time to pull the plug.

Note: This isn't to say the movie still couldn't get made. Jackson is still attached and pre-production continues on the film, although without a studio home it now faces a serious uphill battle.

The story is too old to be commented.

The movie would have been s*** anyways. I love Halo but i wud'nt want to see The Rock or Denzel as Master Chief, not in a million years. And who's Neil Bloomkamp?! It would just spoil the franchise.

It sounds like it's be just a piece of kak anyway.. We DON'T want just special effects.. Top notch story, directing and acting..

If anything I'd like to see it to be a mix of thriller, sci-fi and action..

It would not have been the Rock or Denzel Washington.... Have you ever even seen a movie that Peter Jackson was involved in? I guarantee you that when/if this movie comes out it will be awesome

I'm pretty sure that movie would have been incredible. There is still a chance for it. Neil made some pretty sweet short films.
