Blomkamp Still Set to Helm Halo Movie


Posted May 29, 2007 - By Dana Leahy

For a minute, it seemed as if a big screen adaptation of Halo would never be. A first-time director, Neill Blomkamp, was shakily attached to direct, the movie was expensive, and even though big-time Hollywood heavyweight Peter Jackson was producing, the project was dropped by the studio because it was "too risky."

Now, with all the renewed interest in the franchise surrounding the release of Halo 3, Hollywood is knocking once again and, despite all the trouble, Peter Jackson is standing by his pick for director.

When asked if Jackson would keep Vancouver native Blomkamp as director, he replied, "We wouldn't want to do it with anybody else. It'll be Neill's call."

So there you have it, but only time will tell if the film actually goes into production. Keep yer helmets crossed.
