Peter Jackson Announces 'Halo' Movie Has Stopped

No word on a pick-up date.
Peter Jackson's WingNut Films has announced that they've had to stop production and development on the new Halo movie.

On his official website, Peter has released the following statement:

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.

No word on a time table for Halo to continue.

Halo is in development .

    If they do decide to show his face it should be kept a secret on who the actor is. It would be good marketing actually... but paparazzi always f*ck sh*t up

    tyler, remember that this was two different companies financing the film, i can almost bet that either greed was an issue, control, or the companies felt it might be too much of a risk. budget could easily have been an issue as well.

    I crave this film like everyone else that loves or has heard of halo (and who hasnt? lol) my defense for this statement is the longer we have to wait the better. Afterall, this could be a blessing after the huge list of feature films based on video games that watered down the market for decent adaptations.
