It seems the reports of Halo‘s death are greatly exaggerated.

The Halo game franchise for the Microsoft XBox is an extremely popular one, and plans for a movie have been on and off for years. Most recently Peter Jackson was attached to produce and his protege Neil Blomkamp was set to make his directorial debut. Plans were scrapped for various reasons, most likely money related, and the duo moved on to District 9 instead.

And so the Halo film was pronounced dead.

Until today, when IESB reported a truly surprising exclusive about it’s possible resurrection.

According to the IESB post, Steven Spielberg is in active negotiations to acquire the Halo film for Dreamworks.  He’s apparently very impressed with the script by Stuart Beattie, and is on the hunt for a mega-franchise similar to Transformers (which he lost to Paramount in the studio divorce).  Head over to IESB for more on the possible deal.

With Spielberg producing, who do you think should direct the Halo movie?
