Halo Movie On Hold
8:20 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Wingnuts Films, the production company headed by Lord of The Rings director Peter Jackson, today announced that it has put the long-awaited Halo movie on hold. Earlier this month Universal and Fox withdrew from the project due to an due to an ever increasing budget that was rumored to be approaching $200 million.

Here's the announcement:

As was previously confirmed, we deeply regret that both Universal and Fox did not choose to move forward with financing the Halo film under the original terms of the agreement. At this time Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, along with their partner, Microsoft, have mutually agreed to postpone making a feature film based on the Halo video game universe until we can fulfill the promise we made to millions of Halo fans throughout the world that we would settle for no less than bringing a first class film to the big screen. We are fully supportive of Director Neill Blomkamp's vision of the film. Neill is a tremendously gifted filmmaker and his preliminary work on Halo is truly awe-inspiring. While it will undoubtedly take a little longer for Halo to reach the big screen, we are confident that the final feature film will be well worth the wait.
