First things first: I’m an unabashed Halo nut. Along with owning all the games thus far, I’ve also collected the comics, read one of the books and, until it was shut down by Microsoft, I followed the development of ht live action film religiously. Before the creation of District 9, Neill Blomkamp and Peter Jackson were working on that Halo film, and some of their test/concept footage (Halo: Landfall) was released online. Even in a very rough developmental stage, you could tell that they were on to something good. Something that might finally lift the video game-to-film curse that seems to hamper every adaptation that comes down the line.
