Spielberg may want to make a Halo film

Written by David Stellmack


Said to be attempting to acquire the rights
Could it be that none other than director great Steven Spielberg wants to make a Halo movie? According to a number of sources, Spielberg is attempting to secure the rights for DreamWorks Pictures to make the first live action film based around the Halo gaming franchise.

It is said that the DreamWorks project would come from source material that is in the Halo novels that would be adapted to a screenplay. This means that it would not be the same screenplay that Universal and Fox reportedly poured over $12 million into before the project went south.

Spielberg might be the right choice for a Halo movie, as he has had extensive experience churning out action movie thrillers. The reports that are circulating are, of course, unconfirmed; but it seems that rumors will never go away about the potential for a Halo movie. We say go ahead and make it.

High expectations lead to massive disappointments . The popularity of the halo franchise doesn't make it very appetizing for directors to undertake in fear of ruining their reputations. However because of its popularity it will get high box office revenue even if the movie is crap. Double edged sword.

Exactly! And I will not be surprised if the story is significantly different than the game so the producers can target "an audience not familiar with the game".

Spielberg can make anything fun, even Halo Kitty.

There was a Doom movie a few years back, it stuck to the story line (as much as any FPS can be said to have a story line), I found it enormously entertaining.

I agree, MGS is fantastic, but thats not to say Halo isn't any good.

That movie did not stick to the game's story line at all. Humans with a 24th chromosome is not the same as demons teleporting from hell. I wish that movie did stick to the story line.

Halo would be very suitable material, for a movie. It's lack of strict plotlines, and a comprehensive storyline; makes it an ideal platform, from which to build upon. The Halo franchise offers a great deal of content; from which, a Writer/Director may draw upon, to fuel the elements of his story.

I think it would provide a great deal, given that elements of human nature; can be used to develop a truly immersive story, based upon the elements of the Halo universe.
