In an interview with Variety, Microsoft's Frank O'Connor said the company is still very much "interested in making an excellent Halo movie" despite roadblocks that have kept the Halo universe off the big screen.

"We've created an awful lot of documentation and materials to support a feature film," O'Connor says. "We have a good idea of what kind of story we want to tell, but won't move on it until there's a great reason to do it. We're in no particular hurry." He goes on to say that any film adaptation of the Halo universe would be a standalone story and not a verbatim retelling of any of the games in the franchise.

Not only is the company pulling for a big budget film, Microsoft is also "intently watching" the TV landscape for a possible TV series. While Halo: Reach launches next week, it probably won't be the last time you see a Spartan in action.
