    yes thats right its been confirmed that world famous director Steven Spielberg who brought us so many great movies over the years is in negotiations to direct an adaption of eric nylund's bestselling book HALO:fall of reach, i found it here IESB Exclusive: Master Chief and HALO May Be Coming to the Big Screen Sooner than Expected with a New Big Name Producer

    there is also tidbits on the title of possible sequels for the movie, HALO: rise of the Flood.

    wasnt too sure to post this in the movies and tv section but since its halo i thought i would post it here.

    ...Aw, crap. Look, Spielberg, you've made your fair share of good AND bad movies, but please...don't direct the Halo movie. At the very least, get Sam Raimi, Chris Nolan, or, hell, even Peter Jackson to direct.

    I prefer Steve as a producer. Maybe get someone else to actually direct it.

    Still, I'm interested if only to see how they adapt the story to a movie, but does anyone really give a crap about Halo anymore?

    Jackson is the reason they don't have a director at the moment.

    actualy those were made to promote Halo 3 and to give an idea of what a halo movie might be like.

    Hmm. I'm interested, even though game-movies almost never turn out good.

    Maybe because they're basing it off the book and not the game it'll be better?

    Who knows. It'll be neat to see what it looks like anyway.

    That just tells me that they're making a new game. I hardly ever hear about the game anymore.

    Possibly, but it will no doubt still be influenced by the games.

    It would have to be, the books are based off the games, afterall.

    Yup, so I really hope hey don't Street Fighter it. Halo has A LOT of potential to be a great movie... but then again, so did other games.

    Directing=/=Producing.

    The last crew dropped the ball. I'll wait until we hear some more.
