From One Ring To Another
Jackson takes on Halo adaptation

05 October 2005  |  Written by

Lord of the Rings legends Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh have just made a million anxious gamers happy and signed on as executive producers for the adaptation of hit Xbox computer game, Halo.

The film will be shot entirely in New Zealand, with production scheduled to begin in early 2007. Sadly, Jackson won't be directing the film but he will take a certain amount of creative control and Weta Workshop and Weta Digital will handle all effects and post production.

Halo concerns the exploits of genetically engineered supersoldier, The Master Chief, during Earth's war with a coalition of alien species called The Covenant. At the climax of this interstellar war, The Master Chief's ship crashes onto Halo, an alien world constructed in a ring configuration that encircles a sun.

The Beach
scribe, Alex Garland, is currently polishing the script.

to uh izzet avp was a crappy mindless action film which was hopelessly pointless in making, if you like sci-fi action i suggest you try something with a storyline like serentiy. it can actually be watched by soemone who likes plot and not silly aliens killing each other for the worlds most stupid reason.

RE: From One Ring To Another
Could be good but there is only one problem that a faithful adaption would bring and it was one problem I had with the game. That is the aliens themselves I wasn't a fan of how they looked or sounded in the game and they would make a piss poor translation to the screen   More

RE: Blah Blah Blah
