I was massively disappointed when the proposed Halo movie, produced by Peter Jackson, buckled under the weight of budget expectations, but now - as reported on HBO - rumours are circulating that Steven Spielberg is set to revive the project.
Halo.fr are apparently reporting that they were sent a press kit for the new book Halo: Cryptum, and a phrase at the end of said press kit stated the following...
A film adaptation is set in 2012. It will be conducted jointly by two heavyweights of American cinema: Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks.
Our guess is this is just a huge misunderstanding. If a Halo movie ever gets made, I doubt it will be based on a spin off book set the universe - surely it'll be focused on the original game, and most likely it won't get announced via a random press kit.
More news as we get it.
