Director Neill Blomkamp: The Halo Movie is "Entirely Dead"

Creativity Online has posted a new interview with Neill Blomkamp who was set to the big screen Halo movie until everything went downhill last year. Here's a quote on the movie:

"The film is entirely dead. In the configuration it was in. Whatever happens with that movie, assuming that movie gets made, will be a totally different configuration. It's not so much me as the entire vessel sank. Basically, it was a combination of; there were two studios involved that weren't getting along in the process of making it, Universal and Fox. That kind of stuff happens, it's a fragile industry. So the film collapsed at the end of last year, and it's been dead, ever since then. I'll be curious to see what happens."

I say let universal handle it and keep same director and peter jackson. Raise a huge budget for special effects. And you got yourself a summer blockbuster.


the film will still happen eventually; just not with neil blomkamp as director (YES!!!!)

Halo isnt about fuzzy footage and CCTV style shots; I hated those short films. A halo film should be epic and huge like the lord of the rings, just get peter jackson to direct it.

The movie was a bad idea anyway.

Gahigiddy4490d ago

the shorts were atrocious and that was how the film was meant to look. Even Pete, Neill and MS's buckets'o'cash couldn't salvage this hunk of shi+. Looks like Halo is NOT the 'lucrative franchise' or cultural phenomenon MS and Xbots made it out to be.

In other news, MGS is still being made. Already has Sony funding and Kojima as executive producer.

The metal gear solid movie has a higher chance of going unnoticed.
If they make a halo or gears movie its definitely going to be a blockbuster you got humans fighting off alien invaders. In mgs you got a middle aged man grabbing statue penises.

They won't be making the movie based on the latest mgs, when Snake has this accelerated aging sickness, but on the first one, when he was young.

gaffyh4490d ago

Yeah MGS1 had avery good story if the movie is based on that it should be quite good. I just hope they get someone good to play snake, otehrwise it will end up being a pile of crap :(.


Metal Gear Solid has one of the most dull settings in video game history.


The Halo movie will be made eventually - and it wont suck like the MGS film.
