Here's what the 'Halo' movie would've looked like, if the 'District 9' director had his way
As rumors float around the Internet about Steven Spielberg’s interest in making a movie based on Microsoft’s massive Halo videogame series, it’s worth taking a look back at what Neill Blomkamp — the director of the full-of-awesome District 9, and Peter Jackson’s handpicked choice to shoot the long-aborted Halo flick — would’ve done with the material. Lucky for us, the seven-minute short Blomkamp made to show what it’d look like is still online…
Not that I don’t think Spielberg could work magic with Halo — Saving Private Ryan meets War of the Worlds comes to mind — but Blomkamp seems to have had it all figured out.
What do you think? Spielberg or Blomkamp? Or neither? Heck, should there even be a Halo movie, or is it best left on a gaming platform?
