Halo film?

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4311756.stm

I think that the film should be good and Peter Jackson should make it into something special! I just wonder what the cast will be like and what the scipt is like too. Especially since it has been done by the one of the authors of the books.

Any thoughts?

I'm disgusted with the concept, really. I mean...movie? Ugh, hopefully Peter Jackson can curb it for the best.

I thought the game was alright and the story pretty average, so I honestly doubt the movie will be any good. Besides, Peter Jackson is the producer, not the director.

If they take the story straight from the game, then it should be a good film, but i doubt they will mainly because of time.

Any ideas/hopes for the cast?

The game story sucks. They need to get one from the books.

It might work.

But we'll see.

Hmm, Microsoft will have some big demands on this one.
Probably like 90% of the box-office money

The game was awesome. It is my favorite, but Peter Jackson making the movie? I'm a little sceptical. Look at his King Kong movie... All I'm saying is if they want to turn a video game into a movie - it better be good.

Thumbs down

HAHAHAHH Halo? That would be retarded if they made a Halo movie. Oviously Peter Jackson has more class then to make some movie where it was based on a video game! In my opinion just knowing that there are Halo books is kinda wierd... I personaly find the games fun, but a movie? I am appald that a director can't make a good movies these days.

The story line for halo was... iffy. It's not movie material, IMO.

I just hope they'll shed some light on how the Covenant-Human war started.

Naw they won't. I think they should make it animated though. Like they did the final fantasy spirits with in movie, en though it sucked. I just can't see Halo a movie with "real" people.

Agreed. It would just be weird having it acted. As for the storyline; You COULD use the storyline from the game but you would have to do a really good job of it. They better not muck it up I might have to kill

im quite worried about this. Previous history tells us that films based on games are going to include this:
1. amazing special effects.
2.extremely large fan base.

Although, what usually happens is this:
1.Someone forgot to put a plot in
2.No one really goes to see a film for the special effects.
3. the large fan abse all of a sudden go into hiding, ashamed of what they saw.

take the new silent hill film for example.
