Neil Blomkamp To Direct Halo Pilot?
Still a big rumour but Latino Review's main man, Elmayimbe, seems to have heard that SciFi director Neil Blomkamp will direct the original Xbox series. Hit the jump for more!
Latino Review's Elmayimbe is reporting that District 9's Neil Blomkamp will direct the pilot of Steven Spielberg's Halo. Blomkamp was originally LOTR's director Peter Jackson's choice to direct the failed Halo movie.
The series will be one of the first to premier on the Xbox One's live TV service. Microsoft have built a strong team around the series already so adding a name like Blomkamp seems within reason.
No other details on the scoop were given by El so it's up to us. His do you think things will turn out? Should Blomkamp and Halo stop trying to work? Sign off your thoughts below!
In the distant past, an intellectual race called the Forerunners fought an alien parasite known as the Flood. The Flood, which spread through infestation of sentient life, overran much of the Milky Way Galaxy. One of the races affected was humanity, who went into space and came into conflict with the Forerunners. Exhausted by their war and after having explored all other options, the Forerunners conceived a weapon of last resort to combat the Flood. Using an installation known as the Ark, they built large ring-shaped megastructures known as Halos.
