Halo Movie

Posted at August 25, 2005 10:40 AM

Being an avid Halo 2 player on Live, and a big fan of the first Halo game, I have to post about this. It's been known for a while now that Microsoft has been shopping around for a studio to make a Halo film, but now it's official. Universal and Twentieth Century Fox have agreed to a deal with Microsoft.

They will pay Microsoft $5 million plus a percentage of the ticket sales with the total price being capped at 10% of domestic box office receipts. The movie is being aimed for release sometime in the summer of 2007 and will be based on the Halo and Halo 2 video games.

I personally think they should start from the prequel to Halo, The Fall of Reach, and include some of the action packed scenes from First Strike, which takes place between Halo and Halo 2. I think including The Fall of Reach would make for a much better movie since you would get to see how Master Chief came to be and just how destructive a force the Covenant Army is.

Another funny note about this, Microsoft had delivered the script to several studios using messengers wearing costumes and laser guns. I get a kick out of picturing those poor bastards.
