A Halo movie with the involvement of Steven Spielberg is set for a release in 2012, according to a French press kit for the latest Halo book, Cryptum,

As scanned by and translated by HBO (via GAF), the movie is set to be coming from Dreamworks, the company Spielberg helped set up in 1994.

The press pack reads: “A film adaptation is set in 2012. It will be conducted jointly by two heavyweights of American cinema: Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks.”

This isn’t the first time Dreamworks and Spielberg have been mentioned together in regards to a Halo film. Last time it was brought up was back in October last year.

A Halo movie has been on and off since it was first announced in 2006. Initially, Peter Jackson, Enslaved and 28 Days Later writer Alex Garland and District 9 director Neill Blomkamp were all tied to the movie.
