Självsäkra [n=15926 uttalanden] till trots meddelar Peter Jacksons produktionsbolag idag att filmatiseringen av #Halo har lagts på is. Den officiella anledningen är att de inte vill svika fansens förväntningar, något som såklart kräver ett par miljoner kronor i budget. Därmed är den tilltänkta premiären år 2008 inte längre trolig men förhoppningsvis är detta inte det sista vi hör från filmen.

As was previously confirmed, we deeply regret that both Universal and Fox did not choose to move forward with financing the Halo film under the original terms of the agreement. At this time Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, along with their partner, Microsoft, have mutually agreed to postpone making a feature film based on the Halo video game universe until we can fulfill the promise we made to millions of Halo fans throughout the world that we would settle for no less than bringing a first class film to the big screen. We are fully supportive of Director Neill Blomkamp's vision of the film. Neill is a tremendously gifted filmmaker and his preliminary work on Halo is truly awe-inspiring. While it will undoubtedly take a little longer for Halo to reach the big screen, we are confident that the final feature film will be well worth the wait.
