Deal with it: Halo film 'entirely dead'


5:49 PM on 10.08.2007



With the massive success of the Halo franchise (and the record-breaking sales of Halo 3), it would seem like a no-brainer to cash-in with a major motion picture. Don't hold your breath, says director Neill Blomkamp, once tapped to helm the project. 

"Whatever happens with that movie, assuming that movie gets made," Blomkamp tells Creativity Online, "will be a totally different configuration. It's not so much me as the entire vessel sank."

The film, a partnership between Universal and Fox, was ultimately killed by disagreements between the studios. Par for the course, says Blomkamp, in the "fragile" film industry.

Halo and sci-fi fans have every reason to grieve -- the rich history of the Halo universe (from books, comic books, and the videogame) could have given birth to a sci-fi masterpiece in the right hands.

"I wanted it to feel like the most brutal, real version of science fiction in a war environment that you've seen in awhile," Blompkamp says of the "dirty, organic" film he had been poised to helm.

But hey, we've got Resident Evil: Apocalyse, and that was pretty good ... right?
