Halo TV show announced - Pics, Rumours etc. until released
 
Today was the big Xbox presentation and part of it was the announcement that Halo will get a live action TV show

Not much else is know.. no planned release dates, no other details other than Steven Spielberg will be helming it (i guess as an executive producer.. showrunner will be most likely someone else).

Still.. exciting news. Personal prediction wiould be a fall 2014 release.

Can we make this thread the official thread where we would discuss the Rumors, Casting and Pics until Release, FPAlpha?

I'm surprised they are not making it an animated series. It would've been much cheaper to make.

Nope, it'll be a live-action series.

CGI would be so much smarter than "live action".

Um, that's what the video game is for...

With a few notable exceptions regarding Sharks, Truck Drivers, Dinosaurs and Archaeologists, I loathe Spielbergs stuff. At least with Halo the chances are he won't be able to shoehorn an annoying blond kid with a bowlcut in...

I'd pay good money to see Master Chief blow the crud out of E.T. though...

If we get to see the Bootcamp storyline, you'll get your kid!

I reckon this could be a sequel of sorts to Forward Unto Dawn - only now the surviving kids are now serving in the military, and we see much less of the Spartans.

Or it could be a live action continuation of Halo: Infinity from Spartan Ops - That I would LOVE to see, a proper space based Sci fi show.

Re: Halo TV show announced
 
With their scarcity at the moment, I'd be happy with pretty much ANY space based show...

I'd love to see the Reach storyline.

So this show will only be on xbox live?

Or it could be set prior to the Covenant War, or it could be set in the early days of the war, or it could be set on one of the HALO's or it....

At the moment we have no information apart from idle speculation. So I doubt we'll see the Master Chief, No doubt we'll have an AI Character.

The Forward Unto Dawn webseries proved you could expand the story with unknown characters (Lasky ended up being a minor character in Spartan Ops and quasi useless in the Campaign) and still feel like you're in that universe. Why not?
