In a press release for the French version of the novel Halo: Cryptum, Halo.fr found a mention of a Halo movie currently in development with Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks. Oh, cool. Wait, what?!
Joystiq points out that this bit from the press release lines up nicely with a report from Vuture that Dreamworks was going to take another route by adapting the books to avoid some of the legal business that held up the game-to-movie adaptation.
To recap: There were Halo film rumors, confirmation (kinda), cancellation and now new rumors from a French press release on Halo books.

What do you think? Fake? Misinformed release writer?
