It will be the same format as Halo 4: Forward Unto dawn…
IGN reports that 343 Industries, Xbox Entertianment Studios, and Ridley Scott's Scott Free Proudctions are teaming up to produce a "digital feature project" based on the Halo videogame franchise. The project will be executive produced by Scott and Scott Free TV President David Zucker, and Sergio Mimica-Gezzan (Battlestar Galactica, Heroes) will direct.
The project will reportedly follow the same format as Machinima's Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, which was released online. The story will reportedly follow a "surgically-enhanced super soldier who is not Master Chief." Paul Scheuring (Prison Break) will possibly write the digital feature.
Speaking on the project, Microsoft said that this is "completely separate from the premium Halo television series executive produced by Steven Spielberg, which is still on track."
