Washington as MASTER CHIEF?

Well, according to rumours around the net, Denzel Washington may be up to Direct or even be Master Chief. Apparently Washington is signed up to for a Peter Jackson project, with Halo the only one anyone can think of.

We need someone abit younger but he's pretty good. The guy from 24 would also be good but he doesn't look strong. They should have had Westney snipes or maybe Bruce Willis. And for the love of God please DON'T get the rock.

I think they need to go for the approach the did with Superman and get an unknown young actor.

Master Chief is bigger than an actor, and the actor bigger than master chief.

I'd rather see Halo The Movie on the poster than "Some famous actor as Master Chief in...Halo"

PLUS..more than likely, your not going to see the chief's face anyway, so anyone could play it. They should keep the voice of the orignal chief anyway from the games or they'd sound weird.

It's be weird if they changed the voice of Snake in MGS wouldn't it!? So the same applies here!

I agree with the first part, they need to find an unknown actor that could handle it. Denzel Washington is a great actor, but I agree that getting a big name star may be distracting. At the same time, almost every video game adaptation has been horrible, mainly for the fact that they haven't had an A list director, and an A list cast. This may be exactly what the video games to movies genre needs. So maybe I don't agree with you, but if Denzel Washington is in it, I'm sure that he would do a great job. I haven't really seen him be in a bad movie yet. A couple have been average storylines, but he's always done a great job with his part in them.

LOL, really. If he is master chief I won't complain. But if he's Johnson I'll fall over laughing in delite.

Alright definate people who would make this movie suck is Bruce willis, wesley snipes, or the rock. There's so many more to include, but bottomline is we don't need a mediocre and unbelievable performance from over the hill actors like bruce willis.

It might not sound like a match for Master Chief, but I could get used to it. The guys a great actor.

He was part of the voice group for Halo 2 and as you know the game did pretty good, it doesn't surprise me at all he is in the movie.
