Guillermo Del Toro’s Comments Concerning Halo (The Movie)
Will there ever be a Halo movie? Who really knows at this point? We know that multiple scripts have been written and deals have been made and un-made. Odds are, it probably will become a movie. At this point, it would be retarded to actually state that we really know anything beyond rumors. Guillermo Del Toro recently made some comments concerning Halo (movie):
It would have been beautiful and I must tell that’s a… of anything in my life that I look back and wish it could have happened is that project, because it is such a powerful experience. People talk about it and say “it’s ALIENS or it’s a retread of this or that,” I don’t think so. I think there are angle to that game that are far more epic and far more complex as a cosmology than that. It’s not just about grunts in space. It’s much more than that. It’s a whole epic.
The director of Pan’s Labyrinth and Blade II is right. I feel that there is certainly a ton of depth behind the Halo story. I just hope that Hollywood doesn’t wait too long. I also hope that they don’t screw it up. Hopefully, a director such as Peter Jackson would still be involved, but even Del Toro might not be a bad choice. We’ll just have to see what happens in 2008.
