>Peter Jackson on the Halo movie


A surprisingly candid Peter Jackson talks about his hopes for the forthcoming Halo movie

120 Microsoft clearly scored a bit of a coup at X05 this year, when it finally revealed that Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson would be taking producer duties for its forthcoming Halo movie.

Now, with a script complete, the producer in place and whispers spreading across the internet that Hellboy director Guillermo Del Toro may well be at the helm for Master Chief's silver screen debut, everything seems to be coming together.

So what are Jackson's predictions for his own entry in the interminably dire videogame movie adaptation genre? Well, speaking to DarkHorizons.com, the one-time zombie meister explained: "Hopefully it won't suck."

Which is good news for Halo fans everywhere, we're sure you'll agree! Jackson also indictated that no final decision on a director has yet been made - despite the aforementioned internet gossip - and that the movie will begin filming next year. And why isn't Jackson going behind the camera himself this time around? "I want a break. I want to have the fun but not the hard work. I just want to be part of the creative team but not actually have the pain."

What with some of us in the office being big fans of the Halo series (while others who may or may not be writing this now haven't played the games and really have no inclination to), we're all giddy with the prospect of a Halo film which possibly won't suck. Hooray!

I don't think Halo 3 should be held back until 2007 to coincide with this movie's release. I say launch it next fall against the PS3DO and have a seperate game ready to release alongside the movie. This is all plausible as Bungie follows an 28 month develpment cycle on all of its games.
I am they Alpha and Omega, beginning and the ending. who is am who was and who am to come. i am almighty redWOOD and have spoken

i think they'll be extremely lucky to get it done by 2007... both the movie AND halo 3... since bungie is as notorious as valve concerning game delays.

last i heard, bungie have been bought out. and their halo production team have been halved. i think halo 3 will be released before, since its dubbed as being a prequel, and the halo movie is supposed to bridge a gap in the storyline. them all flowing together. i've been able to take a look at the script they have so far, (through friend of a friend who works in the dept) but i have no certainty about whether its what will be made.

plus apparently the idea to release halo 3 on the same day as the ps3 launch has apparently been scrapped according to things ive read that mr gates has said. (or apparently said)

i spose if the game is ready for the 2006 release of ps3, it'll be released on the same day, or a little before. giving gamers the chance to see halo 3, be amazed and then spend their money on a xbox 360 rather than a ps3. though there are sony buyers who will stick to the sony playstatiion fanatically. pah.
