Please note the "either"/"or" in my post. Thanks!
I would have thought the 'or' would have been a, y'know, good thing?

Should it be a Movie or a TV Series?

attendees at the Future of Television East conference, which seems like an odd place for a video game developer to be hanging around until you get to this choice quote:

"We'd love to see Halo as a television series. Look what HBO did with Band of Brothers or even Rome. Something like that would work because the Halo universe is so vast."
it's also easy to see how this franchise could benefit from a serialized treatment.
the thought of a long-form sci-fi war series is tantalizing.

1. The author forgot Doom
2. Resident Evil wasn't that bad.

Re: HALO movie still being made?

I could actually see a mini-series as a possibility. A stepping stone to a film perhaps. Its a good idea to test the waters first.

^ I agree. A mini-series, preferably on a cable network like FX or HBO (in other words, a network that wouldn't shy away from intense storytelling), would be a great idea. I'd prefer it to be "a stepping stone" to a potential ongoing series, though, rather than a film series. Of course, there's no good reason a television and film series couldn't exist concurrently; the Halo universe is rich enough with possibilities, I think. Halo Legends would seem to be a small step, albeit in the DTV market, towards that sort of idea.

Also agreed. A Halo miniseries with an adequate budget could delve far more deeply into the Halo mythos than a single big-budget movie, which by definition will have to primarily focus on massive battle scenes and effects (and, of course, will inevitably be filmed in 3D).

Not that I wouldn't like to see said film, actually it could be pretty great. But Halo has established a rich universe and I'd love to see it mined for some really good episodic storytelling.

How are they going to make little monkey lizards with big dorsals scary?

That's what people said about Wing Commander and you can see what a disaster that was.

The grunts (Unggoy if you prefer the Covenant term) are mostly there for comic relief I think. Its the jackals and elites that are scary. And the hunters. And the brutes.

Microsoft, through 343 Industries, will likely insist on extensive creative control, just as they did when Universal Pictures and 20th Century Fox were teaming up on the first effort.

Like Subcommander R said, they arent the scary ones. Plus, you play as an 8 ft Spartan, in "real" life those grunts are about 5 ft tall. Still a formidable enemy.

EDIT: Just found this: http://nikon.bungie.org/misc/sloftus...GruntArmor1-H1

That's a comparison of a normal marine to a grunt, simply seeing them "in scale" makes them more formidable if you ask me.

True, I've got some faith in 343, but after that godawful POS that was Halo Legends, im dubious about it. Still doesn't prevent me from wanting to see it happen though, regardless of the result i'd rather they at least try and make a great show/movie.

I would love to see a Halo movie. It would be a hit if done right.
