Saw this on Cinematical
I never got into the whole “Halo” franchise, but I have to say I’m a little sadened by this. Video Game to Movie adaptations usually suck, but you’d think that a franchise as big as Halo couldn’t possibly screw up. I mean, unless you hand the project to Uwe Boll who should be banned from making movies EVER again. They could have had a serious, epic movie here.
They had Neill Blomkamp, whos worked on projects such as 3000 Miles to Graceland, Smallville & Stargate SG-1 booked to direct it. He even had this to say about it.
“I wanted it to feel like the most brutal, real version of science fiction in a war environment that you’ve seen in a while.”
Come on! A director with that kind of brutal honesty, vision and scope certainly could of made a truely epic Halo movie.
I think now that Legendary Pictures is working with Blizzard to make the World of Warcraft epic, they should take over the Halo movie. You KNOW they could make such a badass Halo movie, it makes 300 look like the Little Rascals with toothpic spears and cardboard shields.
