Halo Chronicles project “no longer happening”, says Jackson

Saturday, 25th July 2009 20:54 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Peter Jackson has said that his Halo Chronicles project is no longer gonna happen.

You could even say it’s as dead as Miranda Keyes, from the way Jackson talked – at least on his end.

“That Halo project is no longer happening, it sort of collapsed when the movie didn’t end up happening,” he said. “Microsoft has a whole strategy with the Halo property, and when the rights expired with the two studios, that sort of ended my involvement with the project.

“That fell apart because of internal politics at Fox and Universal. It had nothing to do with the budget or anything else. In fact, we hadn’t even been greenlit at all at that point.”

Confirmation came by way of Joystiq, which ran into Jackson at the premiere of District 9.

    Now that Microsoft has that whole 343 Halo division I’m sure they want full control over a Halo Movie. I don’t know if it is better this way or not. Would love to see a gritty R rated version though, but we all know they would hit the money making pg-13 sweet spot.

    No use for Corrine Yu or Ryan Payton then?

    OH NO how ever will they get a HALO fix now?!! It’s becoming more and more difficult to get a fix of the Expanded Universe.

    Still, I guess it’s always best to leave them wanting more…

    Internal politics at Fox binning a decent sci-fi property? What a surprise.

    So we won’t be getting “Halo: The Movie: The Game of the Movie of the Game”?

    It wasn’t a game. It was an experience.

    I saw what happened when someone was “green-lit” when I watched The Shield… it wasn’t pretty.
