Still feening for that eventual Halo movie? Well, you might need a few stints in rehab to hold you over, but someone in the know says you will get your fix…eventually. ComingSoon has word from Frank O’Connor (sounds like an ’80s action hero name, don’t it?), the Franchise Development Director, 343 Industries, Microsoft Game Studios, who spoke at the recent MI6 Conference in San Francisco:
“We’re going to make a
movie, the scale of all the other stuff that we do changes
dramatically. We make tens and tens of millions of dollars on ancillary
stuff, toys, apparel, music and publishing. If we do a movie all of
that will grow exponentially. We have some numbers if we do a movie,
but it changes everything. It also changes our target and age
The film has had its share of development hell, including an incarnation with Peter Jackson as exec producer and Neill Blomkamp directing. And Guillermo Del Doro had even been in talks to direct at one point, according to Wikipedia. So just hang in there, and hang, and then hang some more. It’s going to happen. Really. The guy just said it would, didn’t he?
Baseline Halo Legends on the message board.
