Halo: Will The Master Chief Be A Movie Star?

After three different scripts, the Halo movie has fallen into development hell due to "cockblocking" from the control freaks at Microsoft. So screenwriter Stuart Beattie (G.I. Joe) has decided to try and break the logjam by writing a Halo script on spec. Minor spoilers ahead.

Based on the Fall of Reach prequel novel, Beattie's script follows a soldier named John from his conscription into the USNC to his transformation into the Master Chief. Then we see the horrific first contact with the Covenant, leading to the fall of the USNC base on Reach, which only the Master Chief survives. Beattie also has sketched out the plots for two sequels. Now will Microsoft pay attention?

Well, you never know. Lets see how this turns out. Although history have shown that, video game based movies suck though.

Well who knows? It could turn out to be good. If peter Jackson was heading this project, I would have full confidence in it but unfortunately he is not So I really don't know.

The way I Figure it is only a matter of time. Will it do well in theatres, Yes! The Halo fan base is huge. Will it be a good movie, Who Knows??? A lot of game to movie adaptations have gone shouth and be not so good to awful. Peter Jackson's name give is some incredibility and the story is already there. Will see.
