Halo Director Interviewed
8:22 AM | Cord Kruse | 11 comments

Ain't It Cool News has posted an interview with Director Neill Blomkamp about his background and his plans for bringing the successful game franchise to the big screen. Among other things, Blomkamp mentions the possibility of making changes to Master Chief's armor for the sake of "full motion freedom."

Quint: How faithful do you plan on staying to the design of Master Chief's armor?

Neill Blomkamp: Master Chief is certainly something that I do not want to change too much at all, there are certain things inside the Halo universe that are sacred and he’s the main one.

Having said that, there is a need to revise certain parts of him, just from a purely technical standpoint, he has to actually be able to move, like a human, and the game design right now does not allow for full motion freedom, which we will have to achieve.

Quint: Guy in a suit? CGI creation? Mixture of both?

Neill Blomkamp: Well, the film has to have a feeling of reality, and so that means that I want to keep him real as much as I can, there is a necessity for him to become cg in sequences where a guy in a suit would just not work, but for the most part I am aiming for real.

Quint: Will we see Master Chief's face?

Neill Blomkamp: You’ll have to wait and see.
