Microsoft: "There Will Be A Halo Movie"

“There will be a Halo movie,” he stressed, while speaking to the New York Videogame Critics Circle. “Everyone wanted to do a Halo movie, the director, Microsoft, the highest placed people at movie companies.”

O'Connor blamed legal snags, and Microsoft's reluctance to license anything more than the movie rights, for the production's indefinite hiatus, saying: “It was the lawyers. When they went behind closed doors with the contracts, things fell apart. The problem was that the movie company couldn’t make any money beyond the movie,”

He also raised the possibility of a Halo TV series: "We’d love to see Halo as a television series. Look what HBO did with Band of Brothers or even Rome. Something like that would work because the Halo universe is so vast,” he explained, but remained focussed on the big screen. “We don’t need a movie. But we’d like a movie. We’d like the moms of gamers to see the movies because they would love our characters. Maybe we’ll even fund it ourselves.”
