Spielberg to bring Halo movie back on track?

August 9, 2009

Halo 3 CGI

According to IESB Steven Spielberg is in negotiations to be involved with a Halo film based on Stuart Beattie’s script for it. Yes, the man behind Indiana Jones, E.T., Jaws, Jurassic Park, Saving Private Ryan and many more amazing films wants to be involved in a Halo film. Apparently the Spielberg was very impressed by the script which is based on the prequel book, Fall of Reach. This would leave it open for more films afterwards.

Microsoft own the rights to Halo and they have a good relationship with Spielberg, well I’m assuming they do since he popped in at their E3 conference this year. Spielberg knows what he’s doing when it comes to films so I definitely have confidence in him.

The person who wrote the script, Stuart Beattie, is supposed to be a massive fan of Halo and has played all the games and read of all the books and comics. Hopefully this will mean that he will keep it as similar as possible to the actual events rather than changing a lot of it. Spielberg was impressed so it can’t be all bad. Hopefully this will happen and Spielbarg will be involved. If he is this could be the first must see video game movie.
