      Seriously, does it even matter? If they stick with tradition, we won’t even see his face so who cares who plays him. Not that there’s a guarantee that this will be made into a movie anyway.

      My uncle, for those who don’t know (probably all of you lol) is the biggest casting director out of Oklahoma/Texas, and is also a smalltime actor. He worked as a screenwriter for a period in the early days of his career.

      I sent it to him, and he thought it was great. He liked the ending a lot, and he was impressed on how much dialogue I wrote from the ground up.

      So what did you guys think of it? I didn’t get a lot of feedback outside of Kenobi.

      as you all know the new ipad came out and i was able to get my hands on a beta prototype. i knew stupid people with lots of money would want this so i pre-ordered one and turned it around and sold it on ebay for 400 bucks profit of what i paid for it.

      I’m not really much of a Halo fan, but seriously, most of my friends that play the damned game don’t even play through the story mode (which I have and didn’t care too much for) and just skip straight to playing other people, I mean having a Halo movie would be as pointless as having a World of Warcraft movie though WoW does have a stronger storyline….now one game with a strong storyline if pulled off right would make a great movie, would be God of War.

      Well in case you’ve been living under a rock in the political world I thought I would let everyone know that heathcare passed. Thats right, the government just hit us with a one trillion dollar tab to be paid over the next ten years to pay for only six years of service. That might not sound too terrible if we weren’t in the worst economic situation since The Great Depression. I can just imagine how excited small businesses are and how many more employees will be hired now that they have too pay more taxes. (that was sarcastic in case you didn’t notice) Can anyone tell me why I should not be uber pissed right now. And clark I don’t wanna hear your "just kick back drink a beer and smoke a bowl" talk.

      UPDATE #2: From Comic-Con 2009

      "When asked about the rumors that District 9 might be a way to prove his mettle for a Halo film, here’s what Blomkamp had to say:

      The rumors are completely wrong…The answer is, I probably wouldn’t do Halo if it was offered to me. But creatively, I would like to do it. It’s kind of like I’d be sad to not work on it, but I would still say no."

      http://scifiwire.com/2009/07/sdcc-blomkamps-out-of-hal.php

      UPDATE #1: The release date for Halo has been updated to show as 2012 on the IMDB page… We’re not sure if this is now the new official release year or what…haven’t seen any credible sources confirm this date yet. Lets hope it will hold up.

      Original Post

      From Neil Blomkamp, the director:

      "The film is entirely dead. Whatever happens with that movie, assuming that movie gets made, will be a totally different configuration. It’s not so much me as the entire vessel sank. Basically, it was a combination of; there were two studios involved that weren’t getting along in the process of making it, Universal and Fox. That kind of stuff happens, it’s a fragile industry. So the film collapsed at the end of last year, and it’s been dead ever since then. I’ll be curious to see what happens."

      The script is written, but disagreements over distribution rights have repeatedly sent this project in and out of pre-production. Some of those involved have said the project is "dead", but Peter Jackson, the executive producer, continues to claim that this film will get made. In other words it’s on hold. Meaning production has likely stopped. There might be pre-production stuff secretly going on but we’ve been without any real insider updates for months now, maybe even a year or so now.

      Basically what happened was:

      -the production budget was continuing to go up ($150 million+ )

      -Peter Jackson and Neil Blomkamp refused to sacrifice creative control to the distributors (Fox and Universal), meaning that Fox or Universal wouldn’t be aloud to screw with the source material

      -Microsoft likely also wanted a larger piece of the profit-pie than Fox and Universal were comfortable with

      -Fox and Universal pulled out of the deal at the last minute due to the rising budget and many disagreements which = Halo movie indefinitely being on hold.

      Who wrote the script? Can I get a copy of it?

      Alex Garland wrote the original script(s) and went through a few re-writes. It can be downloaded here:

      http://www.freewebs.com/mlpiette/Halo_Garland_Alex_020605.pdf

      – you have dhkenobi to thank for posting this each and every time a topic pops up asking about the script. It’s safe to believe that this script will not be the one used in any upcoming Halo movie, so, take it for what it is, a reject. It isn’t that good.

      I heard this Stuart Beattie guy wrote a script? Details please!

      Stuart Beattie, the same guy that wrote a screenplay for the upcoming Gears of War and G.I. Joe movies, as well as Pirates of the Caribbean, also wrote one for the entire Halo series (based very much off the books…) in his spare time during the writer’s strike. He is a big Halo fan and wants to see this movie take off just as much as we do. He is currently in talks with Microsoft about it and to this day (10/15/08) that is all we know about it. What he wrote, as far as I know, is not in circulation (it’s top secret!), so don’t ask if it can be downloaded or if anyone has it. A recent interview with Beattie can be read here:

      http://www.gamedaily.com/articles/news/halo-movie-reborn-gears-of-war- scribe-pens-new-halo-movie/

      A recent article regarding progress on The Fall of Reach film can be read here:

      Some cool concept art was also created, which can be seen using the links below (For some reason, IMDB f|ucks up the links by putting spaces in them…just delete the spaces and they should work):

      I saw the trailer! I saw the first 8 minutes of the movie online!!

      No, you didn’t. What you saw were promotional short films (yes, directed by Neil Blomkamp) that were made to promote HALO 3, not a Halo movie. Yes, I am aware that places like Youtube have people claiming that it is the first 8 minutes, but trust me, they only do that to get your attention and more views for the video because it isn’t true. Yes, WETA made a ton of props for this, including working life-size warthogs.

      If you haven’t seen these clips yet, search Youtube…you won’t have a problem finding them.

      UWE BOLL is directing this movie now?? ARE YOU KIDDING???

      You may have seen his company name listed as part of the credits on this page:

      http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0464037/companycredits

      Don’t believe it, it’s a joke. Uwe Boll will never have anything to do with Halo for as long as Bungie, Microsoft and New Zealand have anything to say about it.

      CASTING topics in general – Master Chief should be played by… Cortana should be played by…

      For one, Cortana doesn’t need anyone to act her part physically okay? She’s a holographic image in the game and will remain one in the movie, end of story. Now, Sgt. Johnson…the Master Chief…fine, go ahead and discuss these, but do it in an existing topic please (Such as this one: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0464037/board/nest/130320478)! No need to clutter the board with one casting topic after another, you’ll just get flamed so don’t waste your time.

      I haven’t read the books, where can I get them?

      http://www.amazon.com/Books-Flood-First-Strike-Reach/dp/0345473043/ref =sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1226347399&sr=1-2

      Many here will agree, Contact Harvest is the weakest of the bunch and myself and others would suggest starting with The Fall of Reach. Start with Fall of Reach and then read through the others – The Flood, First Strike, Ghosts of Onyx, THEN come back and read Contact Harvest if you want. It details the very very beginning of everything, Sgt. Johnson is the main character, there are no Spartans during that time period. The Cole Protocol is the most recent book to be released.

      Okay now I have the books, what order should I read them in!?

      Well that depends if you really want to start from the beginning or in the order they were released, which was almost done chronologically, except for one book ("Contact Harvest"). Reading them in the order they were released is probably the best route, in which case, the order is:

      1.) Halo: The Fall of Reach – This is basically the prequel to Halo and fully explains the creation of the Spartans, their training, early missions, etc.

      2.) Halo: The Flood – This is essentially a novelized version of Halo, but it goes on to explain what we weren’t seeing while playing the game.

      3.) Halo: First Strike – This is the bridging book between Halo and Halo 2, basically picking up right where the Halo game left off with the Chief and Cortana floating in space after Halo was destroyed.

      4.) Halo: Ghosts of Onyx – One of my favorites, Ghosts of Onyx, while it doesn’t involve the Chief, is a fantastic telling of another great Spartan leader known as Kurt-051, and his mission to train the next group of Spartans, Spartan III’s.

      5.) Halo: Contact Harvest – Contact Harvest is the beginning of everything. There is no Chief or any Spartans, but it tells the story of humanity’s first encounter with the Covenant (and how the Covenant nearly became allies), with our beloved Sgt. Avery Johnson as the main character.

      6.) Halo: The Cole Protocol – In previous books, it is mentioned that the Spartans were spread out to many different colonies, and that some are even too far away to be contacted… This book partly explains just who some of those Spartans are and what they’re doing at those distant worlds…as well as what the Covenant are doing…

      What does the Master Chief look like?

      We are given no details about is appearance outside of his armor in the games, so we look to the books for answers! Unfortunately, we’re given very little details there as well… Here is what we have:

      As a child, "Large for his six years of age, and approximately a foot above his school peers, he is described as a typical boy with brown hair, freckles and a gap between his two front teeth."

      As an adult, "the Chief is described as tall with short hair, serious eyes, and strong features. His skin is "too white", a consequence of spending most of his time in his armor. The Master Chief stands about seven feet (2.13 m) tall and weighs 1,000 pounds (450 kg) in armor; without it, he stands six feet, seven inches (2 m) tall and weighs 287 pounds (130 kg)."

      UPDATE: In the "Halo: Helljumper" comic issue #1, John is featured in a flashback sequence by a marine recalling how John beat the sh!t out of a group of ODSTs in the weight room. This fight is illustrated, and we’re finally shown what John looks like, as a teen at least. This image is cropped, showing no text bubbles, so it’s relatively spoiler-free, enjoy:

      GENERAL BOARD TOPICS NEEDING NO FURTHER DISCUSSION

      The Halo movie(s) should be based off the books!

      We know, and we agree. As of today (1/27/09), the majority of our lowly board population will agree with you that the books should play major roles in the direction this movie takes throughout the overall production process. We can only hope that books like "The Fall of Reach" and "Ghosts of Onyx" will make it to the big screen, hopefully with their source material intact.

      ALL video game adaptations have been bad, therefore, Halo will suck too

      First off, Halo has more story depth to it than probably all of the adapted video games combined. A few were incredibly financially successful, yes, but financial success does not mean that it was a fantastic film. Whether you like it or not, Tomb Raider made a sh!t ton of money – the most of any video game adaptation – but it was far from being a great movie. Tomb Raider sold tickets because of the title and its’ star actress alone.

      Don’t try to go and name off the many failed adaptation attempts like Street Fighter or Doom (those being a couple of the most commonly criticized) for the sake of proving a point. There are no points or comparisons that can be made from that. Halo is in an entirely different league than those games and has the potential to be the next Star Wars type sci-fi adventure.

      Why doesn’t Microsoft just fund the damn thing themselves?

      Well, I’ve been wondering that since the movie was first stated to be "dead in the water." Maybe they’re greedy, maybe they’re looking out for themselves in case some financial crisis arises…maybe it’s a little of both, who knows? Why not create a "Microsoft Film Studios" branch? $150 million sounds like chump change for Microsoft but I suppose now with today’s current economic status, playing it safe is the best route to take. Plus, Microsoft has law suits up the @ss constantly it seems and they might need the extra money on reserve in case they lose some big cases.

      My thinking for the most part has been that, if the economy were okay and there weren’t as many people suing the big M$, they might fund it themselves. What do they have to lose right? They could easily make $150 million back. This is HALO! There is an enormous dedicated fan base that would buy a ticket to this movie…and bring friends with them! Anyway…that’s the gist of that…

      Feel free to add to this…

      Alright well heres a list of all the actors mentioned as possibles in each part. Even though this movie isnt even in production, Im putting it all here cause Im tired of everyone posting their own casts all over the board. Whoever is in bold is my favorite. So here we go…

      Master Chief

      Steve Downes voice and never show the face

      – most peoples favorite, though if they do The Fall of Reach as most hope for, they might need someone to be the person in the suit as he is seen out of his armor multiple times.

      Karl Urban

      – The leader of the Rohirrim as the Chief? Maybe…

      Anthony Michael Hall

      – The geek from the Breakfast Club as the Chief? Its possible.

      Mike Rowe

      – Somehow it doesnt seem impossible.

      Sam Worthington

      – Up and comer… hes playing a greek warrior in Clash of the Titans and I think hes a definite possibility.

      Chris Hemsworth

      I’ve finished the intro and the coin scene with Halsey. I’ve added a lot of dialogue/action so far. Once I figure out how to save a word document as PDF, I’ll post it on here. Just be aware and watch out for it!

      http://twitpic.com/1c1ygz Judging by this image, it looks like another Rupert Sanders short.


      Today Bungie’s studio twitter sent this image out saying something ‘big’ is related to it about Halo Reach and will be announced in the next week, so what could it be? Litreally, Only time will tell, we will keep you updated. As I read earlier maybe this is confirming that there are flashlights in Reach, Few what would Halo be without them?

      We all know last summer that he was opting to direct the Halo movie, and now he’s doing some of his own films before trying to take this on. Well, the trailer for his first feature film looks decent, ignoring the overused music.

      I hope it will be successful and will let me forgive him for the G.I. Joe flop.

      For those unaware, Amazon offers credits on many games when you pre-order them. The most common I see are the $10 credits (which goes toward a future video game purchase) but for Reach it’s $20! This is the most I’ve seen… It’s been awesome paying full price for one game, then continue to pre-order and pay $46 for Mass Effect 2…$44 for Bioshock 2…$30 for Bad Company 2…lol crazy… I’m not sure if they lower the credit amounts as you approach release day but definitely take advantage!

      Anyway I’m done

      This look pretty good. I heard they planning to make it a full blown short film of 30 mins long, and this is just a trailer for it.

      So I thought I’d talk about characters. I like to analyse John, but I thought I’d rant about Halsey. It’s gonna be negative, so im curious to see what your opinion of her is. Ah sh!t, btw spell check isn’t working… you’ve been warned.

      She’s supposed to be a mother figure for the spartans, and feel terribly guilty about what she puts them through, leading her to trap them in the Dyson sphere. If she really cared for them, she’d know they dont want to play tree house in the sphere, all they want is to fight, complete missions etc. I see her ‘love’ for them as superficial, something she’s conjoured up to feel better about the things she does. like "I do this horrible stuff to them, but I care" sort of thing. "As a final way of feeling better, Im gonna trap them so they don’t die". Spartans don’t have a problem with dying, they live to fight, its the way they were raised, they seriousely don’t want to be safe, they want to fight. She knows that, so she clearly deludes herself into thinking that leading them into the sphere is the right thing to do. They should have gotten back to help john with the arc and the invasion and all. Thats what they would have wanted.

      I never thought her being a warm mother figure was articulated correctly, even know I think it was supposed to be. The only impression I ever got from her was superficiality and coldness.

      One of my friends is also anti Halsey, but I think generally people like her.

      Define irony…
