343 Industries, Xbox Entertainment Studios and Scott Free Productions have come together to produce an upcoming adaptation of Bungie's hit sci-fi video game Halo. Ridley Scott is producing with Sergio Mimica-Gezzan directing.

The digital feature project will be set in the 26th century and is said to follow the same format as Machinima's Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. It will not follow the series' protagonist Master Chief. Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring is writing the script.
