The news surrounding the upcoming “Halo” movie just keeps getting better and better.
First, we heard that Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings / King Kong) would be producing, then we heard that Alex Garland’s script for the movie had leaked – and subsequently received excellent reviews , and now we are hearing that Guillermo Del Toro, the director of “Hellboy” is currently negotiating to take the helm on the Halo project.
However, there is a bit of bad news – “Hellboy 2” is set to start shooting in the near future, and Del Toro’s involvement with Halo will either sideline the film or see it passed off to another director.
Somehow I think that if Halo lives up to its potential, we won’t be hearing many complaints.
So, Will Halo finally be the video game to movie adapation that we have all been waiting for? Things are certainly shaping up that way. The geek cred on the movie would be sky high with Jackson and Del Toro on board -plus we already know that there is a good script to work from. Sounds like a winner to me.
