Bad news Master Chief fans. The plug has been pulled on the Halo movie. Yeah, it’s just delayed, yeah it’s postponed until someone can understand the great creative vision Microsoft had, blah blah blah. In the end, this really looks like it went south because Microsoft and partners got a little greedy.
It also remains to be seen whether a video game-based sci-flick about a faceless hero fighting aliens can earn the $200+ million worldwide it needs to earn to justify the budget… but I was confident that, if the story came together better than, say, DOOM, it could break the $100M barrier in the U.S. and thus make money with worldwide and DVD sales. But we may never know… poor Neil Blomkamp….
