Aliens asides, does Avatar show another way to make the Halo movie?

James Cameron has recently contended supposed accusations from "fanboys" that his recent sci-fi epic Avatar takes some of it's inspiration from Halo. He's right of course, as the influence of his 1986 classic Aliens on Halo is well documents and indeed acknowledged by Bungie.

If they made a Halo Movie with the production values of Avatar, yipes! That'd be amazing.

I think they could retain the brightness of Halo and still be as effective. Spirits Within was a good film, but I agree that it was a bit monotone and gray, something that should be avoided.

It would cost them a hell of a lot of money, even assuming the production costs of Cameron's techniques come down. Still, out of the gaming IP's Hollywood hasn't already messed up by putting out a cheap product, its by far the strongest.
