After Peter Jackson left the project due to studio disputes, rumors have it that that Steven Spielberg is currently in active negotiations to oversee the Halo movie production.

According to film site IESB, "nameless studio executives" said that Spielberg was "blown away" by the screenplay written by Stuart Beattie, which is mostly based on Eric Nylunds first Halo novel, "Halo: The Fall of Reach." The novel is a prequel to the first Halo game, and it tells the story of how Master Chief became The Master Chief.

Spielberg didn't comment on the rumor, but Microsoft issued an official response stating that " We [Microsoft] are glad there's still a lot of enthusiasm in the entertainment industry surrounding the idea of a Halo movie. That said, the Halo feature film remains on hold as we focus on projects like Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach."

I never liked the Halo games, and Speilberg *along with Lucas* ruined Indy 4, so go ahead and let Speilberg ruin the Halo movie. Speilberg must be out of ideas if he's willing to make a movie based on a game, as if there aren't tons of examples of crappy movies made from games.

I saw the crap Peter Jackson tried to do with Halo and it's a good thing he stepped away. It felt nothing like Halo should, but more like some lousy actors playing paintball somewhere in england. I know maybe it wasn't the final edit, or they didn't put in the proper effects yet, but still. Jackson must have realized what a huge failure he was making and backed out.
