Microsoft says Halo film is on hold
Recent reports had hinted that Steven Spielberg was interested in the project after reading Stuart Beattie's screenplay Halo: The Fall Of Reach, however Microsoft quashed the rumours by telling gaming website Kotaku that a movie is not currently in the pipeline.
"We're glad there's still a lot of enthusiasm in the entertainment industry surrounding the idea of a Halo movie. That said, the Halo feature film remains on hold as we focus on projects like Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach," the representative added.
Last month, it was announced by Legendary Pictures that Spider-Man director Sam Raimi is to bring a movie version of popular game World of Warcraft to the big screen.
The film will be released by Warner Bros and Blizzard Entertainment, the company behind the game, will also collaborate on the project.
