Halo Feature May Be in the Works
Ridley Scott rumoured to be attached to project as producer...

Talk of a Halo feature film has been around for countless years at this stage, but now it looks as though we might actually get to see it sooner rather than later.New reports are suggesting that plans for the movie are entering advanced stages now, and movie industry liminary Ridley Scott could be on board to serve as producer.

Original plans for the movie many years ago were set to see Neil Blomkamp direct, however things never quite came together the way they needed to and he eventually went on to direct District 9 instead. With the confirmation coming last year that Steven Spielberg was involved in a TV series based within the game's universe, it looked as though the movie had well and truly been put on the back-burner, but with 343 Industries, Xbox Entertainment Studios and Scott Free Productions all said to be working on putting a feature together, the future looks much brighter.

No writer is said to be attached to the project yet, but whispers suggest that the movie will be completely standalone, and rather than featuring long-standing gaming protagonist, Master Chief, it will intead focus on another Spartan. With Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring apparently heading the list of potential writers, we might be hearing a lot more about this project in the near future...
