Halo On Hold

Microsoft confirm Halo is “on hold”.

According to Microsoft, the big screen adaptation of popular video game franchise Halo is still “on hold”.

Reports surfaced early last week that Steven Spielberg expressed interest in reviving the project after reading Stuart Beattie’s screenplay Halo: The Fall Of Reach.

However, now a spokesperson for Microsoft told 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.”
