Halo may be turned into a movie yet, as acclaimed District 9 director Neill Blomkamp has expressed interest in helming the project, but only if he is given total creative control.

Speaking with IGN, Blomkamp said, “I still really love the world and the universe and the mythology of Halo. If I was given control, I would really like to do that film.

“But that’s the problem. When something pre-exists, there’s this idea of my own interpretation versus 150 other people involved with the film’s interpretation of the same intellectual property,” he added. “Then the entire filmgoing audience has their interpretation. You can really live up to or fail in their eyes. That part isn’t appealing to me, but the original pieces are appealing.”

Would you like to see Blomkamp involved? Does his work on District 9 fill you with confidence? Let us know below.
