Is ‘Halo’ coming to the big screen?
The ‘Halo‘ video game franchise may finally be heading to tinsel town! Production companies have been trying to cash in on the huge success of ‘Halo’ since 2005, but haven’t had any luck getting the project off its feet.
In 2005, Fox and Universal attempted to join forces and bring the game to the big screen, but they ran into quite a few roadblocks! Issues with producers, directors, and even the asking price for the film ultimately led to the studios parting ways and scrapping the idea.
It looks like ‘Halo’ may have another chance; DreamWorks has shown interest in bringing the ‘Halo’ novels to life. They’re hoping that by basing the film on the books instead of the game, that they can avoid any legal complications between the former production companies and/or Microsoft.
As much as I usually don’t like films based on video games (or even a video game premise), this is one that I’d be interested in seeing!
