Good news Halo fans,
Microsoft lands big name for 'Halo' movie!
Director Peter Jackson from the Lord Of The Rings trilogy & the upcoming “King Kong,” will serve as executive producer of a movie based on Microsoft’s blockbuster “Halo” video game.The movie is to be shot entirely in New Zealand!
Universal Pictures and 20th Century Fox, the companies behind the project, hope to be in production in the spring with an eye for a summer 2007 worldwide release. No director is attached, though one is expected to come aboard shortly. Jackson’s New Zealand-based Weta companies will provide creatures, miniatures and visual effects for the production!

Peter Jackson? No kidding. Should be a good flick!

I hope it doesn't suck like DOOM is going to!

Thats because very few video games have a good plot and story line. HALO, IMHO, has a fantastic story line and plot.

That said, it should be done with CG, not live action.

live actors & 3D CGI
It will be interesting.

The landscape of New Zealand will be perfect for HALO! Hopefully they will have some decent actors.

First of all, HALO is one of the greatest things invented in this new century. Second, not all videogame movies suck, both of the Resident Evil movies kicked ass! If Jackson does HALO properly, and he probably will, it will be exceptional. Besides, who wouldn't want to be the Master Chief?

Name a movie based on a video game that DIDN'T suck.

You'll be hard-pressed.

Final Fantasy 7 - Advent Children
Final Fantasy - The Spirits Within
Resident Evil
Mortal Kombat (the second one did suck ass though)

The Tomb Raider movies were decent, but not great.

It's a Sci-Fi kinda video game. First person shooter. You're a robot/enhanced-human thing that goes around blowing shit up. People seem to think it's some kind of God-like apparition of majestic storytelling, but it's really not.

To each his own.

For the record it takes a lot for me not to like a movie.
