    Microsoft Develops Halo Film

    Microsoft hired screenwriter Alex Garland (28 Days Later) to script a feature-film version of its best-selling video-game franchise Halo, to be presented as a complete package, Variety reported.

    This strategy is the handiwork of ex-Columbia Pictures president Peter Schlessel, who quit the studio to become a producer just over a two years ago. He is expected to serve as a producer in some capacity on the Halo film, the trade paper reported.

    The Halo franchise is one of the most popular in video-game history, having sold more than 12.8 million units and grossed approximately $600 million since its 2001 debut. Last year, Halo 2 sold 6.4 million copies and was the second-best-selling video game of the year.

    The plot of Halo centers on a warrior soldier known only as "Master Chief" who battles a group of alien religious zealots who believe one of their most sacred artifacts is located on Earth.

      Why......?
      “To discriminate against a thoroughly upright citizen because he belongs to some particular church, or because, like Abraham Lincoln, he has not avowed his allegiance to any church, is an outrage against that liberty of conscience which is one of the foundations of American life.”

        I heard this when the first Halo came out as well. On the same note, when Return to Castle Wolfenstien came out and took off a screenplay as I believe they are called was written. It was rumored as well that Kurt Russell was coined to play BJ Blascowitz (sp?)

            28-days later was a well crafted movie. If the screenwriter does good twice then i'll be happy.

            Otherwise it'll suck and take away from halo.

              But how much of that was Danny Boyle and how much the writer?

                      I can almost promise it'll be a bad movie.

                      It'll be over the top horrid CGI special effects at the least.
