Halo Movie Still In Production
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Despite being officially postponed due to squabbles over potential film profits, Variety brings word that the Halo movie project is still in pre-production. A Peter Jackson representative also confirmed that Microsoft is currently in talks to find new distribution partners for the movie.

Moreover, Kamins said that pre-production is underway with Weta Digital and Weta Workshop working on the movie.

According to Kamins, the studios pulled out because they couldn't reach a deal with Microsoft on the share of profits for the film. "Basically, they said that in order to move forward with the film, the filmmakers had to significantly reduce their deals. They waited until the last minute to have this conversation. Peter and Fran, after speaking with their producing partners and with Microsoft and Bungie, respectfully declined," he said.

Kamins also reiterated the importance of the proposed director Neill Blomkamp: "Part of what excited Peter and Fran was Neill's vision. We're very confident this film will move forward with the creative partners intact, who will take the film to production."
