Alex Garland's scrapped Halo script hits the Internet in PDF form? photo



Back in 2005, 28 Days Later screenwriter Alex Garland took time out of his busy schedule to write a 128-paged script based on some game called Halo. Later, DB Weiss (autho of videogame-themed novel Lucky Wander Boy) stepped in and re-wrote the whole damned thing, and eventually that original project was scrapped. Pity.

This weekend, a user over at 1UP "stumbled" across a torrent that claims to provide Garland's ditched script in PDF form. According to 1UP's Patrick Klepek, the script seems legit, credited to Garland on the first page, and full of Halo mythology references and fancy words like "genetically-refined human flesh and blood." 

While I'm too lazy to find the torrent or PDF myself to verify this information, I'm sure with some clever sleuthing and the right client it shouldn't be too hard to get a hold of. Now get to work, and feel free to e-mail that right on over to us.

A Halo game is headed to Steam next week, but it's Spartan Assault

How desperate does Microsoft think we are to play anything Halo on Steam? We'll see if the company's decision to bring Halo: Spartan Assault to the platform next week pays off, I suppose. This overhead dual-stick shooter will...more
