damn universal and fox must be the dumbest fucking studios in the world.....how would they pull out of a franchise that is apart of the #1 selling game in history......seriously even if the movie sucked they would still make ten fold the prodution costs..... oh well heres to bungie and m$ producing it independently

I have a hard time seeing Halo as a movie unless its done along the lines of Batman Begins. Halo's universe is interesting but not that interesting. If you like Resident Evil quality movies I guess it could be good for you. I for one hate most game movie adaptions. I see it coming out like the Doom movie lol -- utter ridiculous crap lol.
Movies are more risky to development vs games -- games can be market tested and reworked through production. Microsoft is asking for a lot of control and a big chunk of the movie revenues which is differently going to make it unattractive to movie studios. I just don't see a Pokemon like following for Halo anymore that could justify the risk in making a movie, especially if they want to go all out. But what do I know, I'm no expert ; )
if they do it by the books like make a series of movies starting form the fall of reach it would be almost perfect the halo book series was the only books i ever enjoyed reding
