X05: Peter Jackson to be executive producer on Halo The Movie

X05: Peter Jackson to be executive producer on Halo The Movie

Big shock ! Peter Jackson just announced that he will be executive producer on Halo The Movie, as WETA will handle the SFX. He precised that he was a big fan of the series, and that he spent nights finishing the second episode during the shooting of King King.
[ERRATUM]: Sorry for the wrong news, misunderstanding between Blimblim and me.

King Kong
I, Robot
Van Helsing
Return of the King
The Two Towers
Fellowship of the Ring
Contact
The Frighteners
Heavenly Creatures

They are milking Halo for every cent! The game sucks and the movie will too, even though Peter Jackson freaking rocks.

Sorry for the whole thing, misunderstanding. And for "King King", I wrote it in a rush. The site is so slow right know, it's hard to news correctly.

This is such good news. They're even using WETA, dear lord this movie just moved from crap to possible bluckbuster.

This could be awsome!

Great news!
Now all it needs is Alex Proyas as director, or Terry Gilliam.

or Chistopher Nolan

Yeah...keyword: MIGHT. As far as im concerned, this movie is pretty much going to suck regardless due to its stupid story...and seeing as how it will most likely be one of those "CG" movies, I think i'll just wait for it to come out on DVD and rent it. Final Fantasy anyone??

You can't compare. At least, Halo'll have a real crew, with a real producer and a real (hope so) director. FF:AC was just a toy for rich game conceptors to play with.

Yeah and Final Fantasy Advent Children rocked after their Spirits Within mistake so thats not a great analogy.

Im talking about Spirits Within...that movie sucked. Most video game movies suck...the only one that looks decent is Doom, and even that is questionable. Look at Resident Evil, both of those movies sucked...I don't think games should be made into movies...with the exception of Splinter Cell because thats realistic and would be a cool movie...

The Halo motion picture will be helmed by Neill Blomkamp, making his feature film debut. Blomkamp is widely regarded as one of the most innovative and original artists currently working in short films and commercial advertising. Halo will be distributed domestically by Universal and internationally by Fox. Visual effects, miniatures, and creature design and creation will all be handled by Jackson's award-winning Weta Digital Ltd. and Weta Workshop, Ltd., most recently known for their Oscar-worthy work on The Lord of the Rings films.

A native of South Africa, Blomkamp directed the acclaimed 2005 short film, Alive in Joburg, that depicted a future in which extraterrestrials have become refugees. Last year, Blomkamp also received three Clio Awards and a Visual Effects Society Award for his television commercial Citroen-Alive with Technology. In 2004, Blomkamp was recognized as "One of the Top Five Directors to Watch" at the First Boards Awards and was a featured artist at the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors Showcase at Cannes. He has also been nominated for an Emmy award for his work on an episode of James Cameron's Dark Angel.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (2 Hours ago)
