Just in case this doesn’t hit the major news sites I just want to make sure everybody is aware of this. Confirmed from Microsoft it seems the Halo Movie seems to have targeted release date and a director named. According to “Gamasutra” it seems Summer 2008 is the date and Neill Blomkamp will be the director. I know every other nerd on the planet including myself was HOPING Peter Jackson would direct. Instead we get a first time movie director taking the helm in maybe the last movie I am seriously looking forward to.
Personally I hope he does a fantastic job but of COURSE I’m afraid he may just screw it up. From what I’ve read he seems to have potential so I’m not going to be a negative nancy.
Update: Yeah this “Neill Blomkamp” guy sounds like an idiot. On AICN he gave an interview and about the movie and said an awful thing…
Quint: Will we see Master Chief’s face?
Neill Blomkamp: You’ll have to wait and see.
He should have said flat out “no”….
Quint: As far as Master Chief’s voice, will you consider Steve Downes, who voiced the character for the games or will you more than likely go with a bigger name?
Neill Blomkamp: It’s just too early to be able to know anything like that yet.
He should have said “Steve will voice”….
Quint: I know this is very early, but will any of Marty O’Donnell’s score from the game make it over to the film? Is he a contender to compose the score for the movie?
Neill Blomkamp: It’s just way too early for any decisions like that
He should have said “yes”….
What a noob.
