The lights are on
In an exhaustively researched and well-written article, Wired digs deep into the saga of the failed Halo film adaptation. It's an interesting look at the still-vast differences that exist between the film and video game industries.
The article is long and detailed, so I won't attempt to summarize it. Suffice it to say that the Halo movie was undone by Microsoft's inability to understand the dynamics of Hollywood dealmaking.
It's an interesting read, right from the first few paragraphs, which recount a team of men dressed in full Spartan armor carrying Alex Garland's (28 Days Later) script for the Halo movie to the headquarters of Universal, Fox, New Line, and DreamWorks.

Thanks for the link :)
And yet more things I have to read...
Interesting. Can't say I'm sad to hear the project fell through though.
don't explain, make it "not fail", & quick plz!
i think it would work halo has a large fan base.
It's hard to sell a rated R movie that would have the kind of budget that Halo would need.
If only... damn you all for not understanding that a WELL DONE Halo movie could have totally owned the box office for months after release. talk about making your money back 10x
Can't wait to check it out, sounds interesting.
I read it and it can still happen.
I just got done reading the article and its quite fascinating, i figured it would be hard to make with so many people getting a cut of the profit but only a couple putting money into the production. Microsoft just got a little greedy i guess...
I would love to have seen it..................mostly for cortana though :o
