Ok... i usually dont like video game movies too much so i wasnt very excited about seeing this interpretation on the big screen... until now.

Halo Director Announced (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=15944)

Neill Blomkamp will direct the Halo motion picture, to be produced by Academy AwardŽ winners Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh under their WingNut Films banner for Universal Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox.

Blomkamp is making his directorial debut on the film. He is widely regarded as one of the most innovative and original artists currently working in short films and commercial advertising...

Ofcourse at this point i had never heard of this director... so i googled him and found his reel at http://www.spyentertainment.com/director_03.html ive seen some of his commercials before and they are amazing. But the short film titled "Alive in Joburg" is really beautiful. I can see now why he was chosen for Halo... im excited to see what he does with it!

ack, I thought they were waiting for Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy). He's awesome. Oh well, we'll see how it turns out with this guy.

I'm really hoping that Halo will show people and critics that game to movie adaptations can be done RIGHT.
