This Ain’t Beyonce’s Halo.
The movie version of Halo has almost happened before — Peter Jackson and Neill Blomkamp could tell you all about that, but so far said project just hasn’t panned out. Still, Frank O’Connor, the Master Chief of the Halo world, says the film will happen. Eventually.
“We’re going to make a movie when the time is right,” he said. “We own the IP. If we want to make a movie, the scale of all the other stuff that we do changes dramatically. We make tens and tens of millions of dollars on ancillary stuff, toys, apparel, music and publishing. If we do a movie all of that will grow exponentially. We have some numbers if we do a movie, but it changes everything. It also changes our target and age demographic.”
