District 9 director still wants to make a Halo movie


4:00 AM on 04.11.2013



Remember when Neill Blomkamp, the director of District 9, wanted to make a Halo movie? And it looked like it was going to be amazing? Ah, those were the days. While a Halo movie may never happen, Neill would love to still take a crack at it according to IGN.

"I still really love the world and the universe and the mythology of Halo," Neill stated to the press. "If I was given control, I would really like to do that film. But that's the problem. When something pre-exists, there's this idea of my own interpretation versus 150 other people involved with the film's interpretation of the same intellectual property. Then the entire filmgoing audience has their interpretation. You can really live up to or fail in their eyes. That part isn't appealing to me, but the original pieces are appealing."

No Halo movie, but Neill did just reveal his new movie called Elysium. It's about a man who becomes a super soldier that has to make his way into space and enter a massive ring world-like construct. Hey wait a second ...

It took almost four years to build this amazing Pillar of Autumn from Halo with Legos

I was recently given a tiny Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Lego set. 47 pieces. I put it together in no time. Michelangelo with a little cart thing. It was simple, but I loved it. You know; that feeling you get when y...more

Maybe don't spend $250 pre-ordering Halo 5: Guardians, okay?

There's a certain allure behind mystery boxes. What's in them? It could be anything. It could even be a boat; you know how much we've always wanted one of those. Well, Microsoft's offering a mystery box of its own today for p...more
