Some interesting news has surfaced revolving yet another movie version of the video game Halo. While Latino Review is reporting that the version with director Neill Blomkamp and screenwriter Alex Garland is still dead, they're also reporting that screenwriter Stuart Beattie (Collateral, upcoming G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra) has written a new script revolving around the novel Halo: The Fall of Reach.
That book, written in 2001 by Eric Nylund, serves as a prequel to the first video game. Beattie's script has been making the rounds around town and conceptual artist Kasra Farahani has been hired for a presentation of concept art for Microsoft execs. The site has the first look at one of these images and you can click the image below to enlarge.
We'll be sure to keep you posted on any developments revolving around this interesting project.
