Death of the Halo Movie: Why Microsoft Was Right To Challenge Hollywood

Hollywood is famous for having its own rules that outsiders must abide by. But really, no one should play by Hollywood rules or try to get it. And so when ever I hear of someone trying to buck the traditional I can’t help but stand up and applaud for them. Microsoft right now stands at the heap of companies that refuse to play by the Hollywood rules. Back in 2005 when Microsoft announced that they were actively looking for a studio to produce a Halo movie the game sphere was abuzz. Given how huge the Halo games were one could only imagine how much money the Halo movie would inevitably gross. In typical Microsoft fashion of “Go Big or Go Home” they sent guys dressed up as Master Chief to all the major studios with terms and an approved script Microsoft was going to actively make sure that the universe was treated with the respect its rapid fanbase demanded. (Halo, Industry, Microsoft, Xbox 360)

Hopefully, all the pieces will come together for an awesome Halo movie soon.

I just want a Halo movie directed by Speilburg based on the first game that sticks to the source material.

No matter how much I want the movie, I respect Microsoft for making sure that Hollywood doesn't butcher the franchise. Hollywood needs to learn they can't screw things up.

i would rather a halo movie not revolving around master chief. I mean mention how great he is here and there but i would rather leave him in the games :)

And just in case there are still people who haven't seen it, here's the Halo live action short film. So much awesomeness.

Micheal Bay to direct film adaptation of popular gaming franchise "Halo", appropriately titled Halo: Combat Exploded.

Bay promises not to delve too far from the source material that the fans have come to love over the years, as he lets in on a small portion of the script he's devised.

The film is set to revolve about a man who's only known I.D are the initials "M.C." who wears a super enhanced suit of constantly exploding explosions, which in turn causes everything near and far to suddenly combust in on itself. There is also rumors of an alien race, but behind all the explosions no one can really tell what the threat is.

Shia LaBoeuf set to provide the voice for the iconic character, with whoever the new and upcoming eye-candy is today to play Cortana. Bay promises an exciting, explosive experience.

If that were true then I Michael Bay would be sleeping with one eye open, because I'd kill the guy.
