[Movies] Microsoft Says There Are No Plans For A Halo Movie
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.14.2014



Eurogamer reports that Microsoft has issued a statement saying it has no plans to make a Halo movie after rumors claimed that Ridley Scott signed on to produce a feature-length digital film.

The statement reads: "The Halo franchise encompasses many elements, including games, action figures, novels and more. As always, we have many projects in the works that offer us the opportunity to bring in new audiences to the franchise, as we did in the past with Halo Legends and Halo: Forward Unto Dawn. We plan to continue telling the Halo story through innovative channels, but there are no plans for a Halo motion picture at this time."

The rumor was started by tweets from Production Weekly. It may have been talking about the confirmed Halo TV series, however, which Steven Spielberg is working on with Microsoft and 343 Industries.

Alex Garland wrote a script for Halo and pitched it to studios by couriers dressed as Master Chief. Halo IP owner Microsoft was asked for "unreasonable terms" from Hollywood before 20th Century Fox and Universal Studios teamed up to produce the film. Garland's script was reworked and Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium) signed on to direct with Peter Jackson producing. The film fell apart in 2007 and the film rights went back to Microsoft. Blomkamp has said he still wants to make a film version.

The next Halo game will arrive on the Xbox One later this year.
