Halo Movie “On Hold”

Remember when Peter Jackson said that the Halo Movie was no longer happening? Well Microsoft has a different little story.

Earlier this week Peter Jackson stated that “the Halo project is no longer happening.” Now, Microsoft have released a statement which had this to say. “Given the bandwidth of both of our companies we’ve decided to put this joint effort on hold and prioritise resources against other projects like Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach and Halo Legends.”

It’s a bit strange how Peter Jackson ensured the public that the project is no longer in action while Microsoft insists that it is, maybe Microsoft are so keen on this project after all, or maybe Peter Jackson is no longer part of the project. That means that in order to continue, Microsoft needs to find a new guy for the job, maybe┬áSpielberg could take his place, after all he does love all things Natal.

To some fans this comes as a concern and only now the Halo Movie becomes a bigger ring at the back of their minds, while for others it’s a big sigh of relief to hear that Microsoft has finally said something about the project, even if it does throw in a pretty expected question. “ Will the Halo project ever happen?”

  1. It’s hard to say if the Halo Movie will ever hit cinemas. With the lack of information that Microsoft has given about the project, it leads me to believe that maybe this was not meant to be.

    What do you all think?

  2. Well, the former director recently said that he wouldn’t go back to the movie even if another attempt was made:

    And considering that it production was “suspended indefinitely” almost three years ago, there’s probably more than enough to declare the Halo movie well and truly dead.

    Anything that we’d actually see now would be a completely new project, with very little if anything in common with the original one.

  3. I guess that Microsoft was just dreaming about their movie, I’m hoping that somehow the movie shall continue to be made, and I hope the Gears of War movie doesn’t fall through the same hole.

  4. If they punted Peter, than that’s gonna screw them over, because that guy came out of nowhere and is a damn good director with the LOTR trilogy to prove it.

  5. I saw a short clip about the Halo movie and well didn’t really like it. Then again I never really liked the Halo game. It just seems with to much action them clip which is probably fake but the game is also explosion this explosion that. Hope I’m not going to get attacked by Halo fans.

  6. A movie?! They’ve got to be kidding (sorry to loyal fans). I just don’t see this happening….can’t believe they’re doing it.
