Following a swift withdrawal by film studios Fox and Universal, Microsoft is already in talks with other distribution projects to continue development of the Halo film, says Peter Jackson's representative Ken Kamins.
One can only hope.
Go ahead and call Sony MS. They'll make it happen for you.
LOL If not Universal or Warner Bros. you better hope Sony if you want it to be looked at as a top-of-the-line movie!!! Or Paramount!
Uwe Boll to direct. You know he rocks the videogame movies!!
up just so I could laugh my head off when it hits BD and it could be a good investment!
that would be funny as hell!
GREAT call...... LOL
what would be funnier is... if Sony "would pick this" and then the movie is released only on HD DVD. Hehe.. similar to what happened with BetaMax... sony had to eventually release all their movies on VHS...
And Atleast the Movie would play in higher rez then 640p..
thats funny sh!t
have a bubble
atleast they can find anyone to play master chief. Its not like u have to act when ur wearing a helmet the whole movie...
the only thing is if it comes out on BD, people will just pirate it more because of the flame wars.... LOL Sony won't touch that with a 10 foot pole that has a condom on it.......
Tell that to Hugo Weaving.
Microsoft should strike a deal with Paramount and Dreamworks and drop Fox and Universal which would benefit Toshiba and HD-DVD as well thus producing more investors for the film’s budget while at the same time killing two birds with one stone (No Blu-ray version). It is a possibility.
Somebody from that site posted that news article today after seeing the old article from last year being posted up here today.
This is all old news,Blombkamp actually said himself last month that its over.
I'd be down for Sony making it if it came out on Blu-Ray. Thats the kind of irony that you gotta savor, perhaps with a nice glass of brandy.
But really these studios make insanely expensive movies out of less popular IPs that Halo. I can only imagine the bad ideas in those meetings to get these guys to throw the film out.
by the time it hits the movies, the contract is over between Toshitba & Paramount and Dreamworse.
Let it die just like halo3 i cant bear more bloody hype for a crap product, jesus m$ get a grip, what ya gunna do have dwarfes dressed as aiens and speking like little kids on hellium, this is gunna be flop Big FLOP. Just like Guyver.
mainly due to greedy M$.
"ok we want 20 million up front, we dont want to finance the project at all, we want complete control over director/storyline/release dates and we want 101% of any profit...."
Zomg a biz is greedy no way? i got moar sence in mah turdz
Roffles @ all the Halo movie on BluRay comments. Why would MS do that?
It's their property, they're making a movie for it. Why would they let their primary competitor make a killing off of it also?
Hope the movie gets done it could definitely be a summer blockbuster just like transformers was.
Halo movie lives!!! and I hope Sony pick this up, Sony can make it happen. and the best part would be Blu ray = Halo. :)
