In an article talking about the popular “Halo” franchise, Variety published quotes from Franchise Development Director Frank O’Connor about whether we’ll ever see a Halo movie. The trade says that Microsoft is still developing scripts by Alex Garland, Stuart Beattie, D.B. Weiss and Josh Olson as potential blueprints.
“We’re still interested in making an excellent ‘Halo’ movie,” O’Connor said. “We’ve created an awful lot of documentation and materials to support a feature film. 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.”
The film would likely be a standalone story and not “a verbatim retelling of the game,” O’Connor added.
Microsoft is also “intently watching” the TV landscape as a potential outlet for a “Halo” series.
The next game in the franchise, “Halo Reach,” hits stores on September 14.
