MS Will Not Deny Halo Movie Details

The news about the, so-called, Halo movie deal keeps coming in, as entertainment magazine, Variety reports that Microsoft has spent 1 million dollars in order to secure the writing talents of Alex Garland.

Better known for his book The Beach and his screenplay for 28 Days Later, Garland seems as a very worthwhile investment and is bound to generate a positive buzz regarding the prospects of a Halo themed movie. According to the newest rumor, Microsoft has asked Garland to utilize the stories from both Halo games in order to create one movie.

The most interesting aspect of this latest Halo Movie story is the way that Microsoft has chosen to respond to it. When asked to comment on Mr. Garland's possible involvement in the project, an MS spokesperson, responded by praising the success of the games and added, ...we have not, however, made any official movie announcements.
While definitely not a confirmation of the Variety story, the reply does suggest that Microsoft is enjoying the interest such a possibility has generated.

Having watched a variety of game-to-movie projects crash and burn, the latest such case being Alone in the Dark, Microsoft is trying to make sure that its current flagship franchise escapes a similar fate. All that we can hope is that Microsoft's refusal to deny any Halo movie rumours is a sign that there might be some truth to them. If that is the case, the notion of any movie directed by Ridley Scott and penned by Alex Garland cannot be anything but appealing.

Well, i dont know what to expect, this could turn into something good, or quite the opposite.Also, I hate MS. Everything that they have influence on drips with evilness. And no they dont *make* good games. They *buy* these games from gamemakers. They help distubute them, thats all. Bungie made Halo, not MS. If MS would ever make a game, it would be an inusable piece of s**t. But hey, they already made it; its called Windows!Another good game btw that microsoft help sell and was able to then put their name on the product is Dungeon Seige (IMO)

The morons! nobody's gonna like the movie if its about just halo n halo 2, that'll just b same shite with a different smell. wat they really need to do is make the movie around the books! most people dont even know where the chief came from so i rekon people'd go for that heaps more. by the way b-boy, true dat bout those first post retards!

i agree that the movies should be on the books!@ Their awsome you guys should read atleast the first one. In the first book it tells the story of master chief going through all his training and phsical modifications. Master chief was a bad ass before the suit...so tell that story hollywood!

I agree first post retards shut the f**k up! no one cares about first post! we care about comments so go and suck daddies c**k! I think that if they use the correct story and actors it could be good! but a point to bear in mind: i don't think microsoft have much experience writing or making films! Probably will just buy some good actors and directors then take all the creedit for the film!Just think bill gates donated $750 million doallars to the tsunami clean up! OMG the rich bastard! he should distribute the wealth to people not that wealthy! i mean how is he going to spend $100 billion in pocket money!

Why does MS have to do a movie about the games? The games are enough of a movie in and of themselves. I would think that it would be more practical to do a prequel. The Fall of Reach wasnt a bad book and could make a good movie. It would explain a lot of background story for the exsisting Halo characters and set the world up, plus it would generate interest in those who have not played the games,encouraging sales of both Halol, and Halo 2.

How can arnie be the Master cheif if he is a governor of California?You probably didn't think about that didn't you?______________________________________A movies idea sucks. I think the game is good enough. I can't possibly think how the movie would look like

all I know is if Uwe Boll even looks at this movie during production Im not watching it because he seriously has the skills to turn a worth while piece of work to crap, But I doubt he will be involved in such a big time project at all so let's just hope this hold to be true.

i would shit myself if there were ever a halo movie... the way they f**k everything up nowadays it probably wouldnt even make it to dvd. we need producers to put the effort into game/movies just like every other movie out there and a classic could be made but just like resident evil and alone in the dark its going to be terrible and its sad cuz it could be great
