    i just heard this a couple of days ago if anyone is interested, apparantly peter jackson has got the rights to make a halo movie. that's right the lord of the rings director. not much else is known, no release date, just the fact that he's interested. If it's anything like the game (which it will be) it's going to be awesome.

    The word is that Peter Jackson will produce the movie, and his production house WETA will be working on it and it will be shot on New Zealand.

    I do think its pertinent to mention though that most video game movies suck. They are never able to capture what makes the games exceptional.

    From what I've heard, it'll follow the game storyline very closely from the fall of Reach, to the discovery of Halo, to the subsequent parts of the game after that. I also heard it's supposed to be ultra-violent, even called the "Saving Private Ryan of video game movies."

    Personally, I can't wait to see a game-to-movie transition that's actually good. And considering the huge fanbase, they know they better make this one worthwhile.

    yeah, i think it'll be a good one too. which probably means that they're going to be doing a halo 2 and probably a halo 3. making this a 3 movie franchise. hopefully the first will be good so the other 2 can follow suit.

    This might indeed be interesting, but I'm still clinging to the flawless logic that, game to movie = sux, until proven otherwise.

    They have some good people on board...Peter Jackson, the director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy is a producer or something.

    yeah he was jumping at the chance to make this movie. he's got an animation studio and everything, i hope he puts as much work into this as he did in lotr. it's obviously going to be a blockbuster movie if he advertises correctly.

    Peter Jackson is the Executive Producer... he didn't write the script.

    Apparently, the script itself has already been written and reviewed. I'll post a link to the review once I find it again... it does sound pretty darn good though.

    That script might be fake though. It's not confirmed.

    Anything based on Halo's boring ass story just can't be good...

    Halo's story is good as far as FPS games go, and the third book, First Strike (which takes place between Halo 1 and 2), opened up a ton of great story possibilities. Unfortunately, thay didn't make use of any of them in Halo 2, which I bought partly because I wanted to see how the plot threads in First Strike would tie up.

    Halo has a ton of story potential which is revealed through the books. The author of the first and third books (the second is basically Halo 1 in text form), Eric Nylund, had the Halo Bible at his disposal, and the story he wrote was approved by Bungie. Why they would not build upon the books in the video game is baffling to me.

    i heard about this movie a few months back... but i also believe that the transition from a game to a movie is bad. just last night i was watching doom, and it kinda was lame imo.

    anyway, if peter jackson does film the movie... hopefully it'll be a good trilogy. :)

    yeah exactly. i hope he takes his time with this movie, and i hope he follows the story line of the first game, then the second and so on. it's going to be an animated starship troopers like movie. lol, there used to be an animated starship troopers series, but it got cancelled, lol. it was pretty good.

    I demand first person Shooter action.

    It worked so well in Doom, and with the potential for shiny pretty lights in halo it should be a good crack.

    whoever said that the HALO storyline sucked doesnt know what they're talking about. I mean it's obviously not as deep as an RPG would be, but for an FPS, it has a great storyline. I really hope that Peter Jackson does a good job on the movie(s?), and considering that the LotR trilogy was (in my opinion) among the best movies of all time, I think we're safe.

    Although, I have to say, that I think HALO will be one of those things that either is amazingly awesome or horrifically shitty...

    lol, yeah they did? however i wasn't talking about the movie. i was talking about the animated series, which was o.k. my point is, master chiefs outfit is going to look similar to what the suits look like in starship troopers the animated series.

    Peter Jackson is the Executive Producer. He never has a hands on with the project. But he oversees those that do. He is responsible of setting up the team. From Director to so on. I also believe just like any other movie there is usually going to be another person who will be Executive Producer (in actuallity it is his wife, Fran Walsh) with Peter Jackson. Right now Alex Garland (28 Days Later; Wrote the Beach [not the movie that was horrible, the book]). Microsoft paid $1 million dollars to do the adaptation. Right now still no Director is named for the film. Nor any actors/actress'. Well this is either because it is being kept secret to who it will be. As the adaptation is already rumored to have been finished. Universal/Fox also expecting production to begin by next year. If Joseph Staten (wrote the story for the games/so far in updates in the bungie site shows that he has had some say as far as which direction the film should go) did help with the adaptation which so far has been confirmed all Halo fans should rejoice instead of hanging their heads. The way DoA fans have already. As well as Tekken fans. Even MK fans are hanging their heads once again with the announced third film.

    But the way the direction of this adaptation is coming up. It looks good thus far. Nothing I could think of where one would go "this is going to be another crappy adaptation".

    Halo had one of the best FPS storylines ever on CONSOLE :wink

    I am willing to bet for $1 that it would be the best movie adapted from video game, no matter how much it sucks, judging from what I read about the movie so far. And $1 is how much I would spend when I catch it at my local dollar theatre when it comes out :laugh
