View Full Version : Halo Movie !!!!!!!

Master Chief reports for duty at both Fox and Universal!!!

here with some (potentially) great news. We know that last week Microsoft took Alex (28 DAY LATER) Garland's newly finished adaptation of their X-BOX big breadwinner game, sending out fully costumed Master Chiefs to hand deliver the scripts to various studios. We also know they wanted $10 Million for the script.

Now we've gotten word that the trades will be breaking that HALO has been picked up in partnership by Fox and Universal.

Here's the heads up I got from the good people at Sorryigotdrunk.com (http://www.sorryigotdrunk.com/) who have been following this really closely.

After being the *** end of the joke when they sent out the script with high demands on Monday, it looks like those nihilists at CAA and Microsoft will have the last laugh. Lazlo's spies tell me that Fox and Universal are working out deal to buy Halo for $5 million; split costs. It is about half of what they were asking for on Monday, but it is more coin then our drunks asses will ever see. The movie should be in theaters by 2007

Your loyal solider,


This has been backed up by at least one other source of mine and has just been confirmed by Variety (http://www.variety.com/index.asp?layout=upsell_article&articleID=VR1117924199&categoryID=13&cs=1). Funny that it's at Fox considering HALO itself owes a huge debt to Cameron's ALIENS. I'm dying to read the script to this, as one who has lost many, many hours to Halo gunning down those Covenant *******s! I think a damn cool movie can be made out of the game... Could HALO be the first great video game movie? What do you folks think?

I figured that there would be a Halo move out soon. As for the actor i cant really pick out one who i thin kwill do a good job.I do think that this actor should be someone that can be serious the full time and with that rebel image.

Oh boy, I love playing casting director...

Well "The Rock" is playing the lead role in the Doom Movie due out soon, so it won't be him.

I don't want AAAAHNOLD, and no "pretty boys" ...

Maybe Clancy Brown (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000317/) from the original Highlander, he was also Sergeant Zim in Starship Troopers ...

Hmmm, I hate to say this but maybe George Clooney? He's kind of gruff with a deep voice. He may be too big a name though and is kind of a pretty boy.

Will Smith? That sure would piss off all the Racist A$$holes I come across playing HALO2 on XBOX live.

There shouldn't be any "real" actor as MC. Maybe someone to do voice overs, but a stunt man should be in the suit (and get some hot chick to do the other part).

Raoul Duke

I agree, I hope they don't have anyone do MC. As long as we never see him they can't mess it up. I've also heard that it might be an animated movie...
