So like I saw an interview with former Bungie Hero now Microsoft Champion, Frankie and it intrigued me with the short reference to Peter Jackson's take on the Halo franchise, Halo Chronicles.
Frankie was asked about the progress of Halo Chronicles and gave this reply in response to a question:
"No let's just say that Weta makes awesome special effects and let's leave it at that".
I thought we needed a better answer so I sent a twitter to Weta Work Shop:
"@wetaworkshop Dear Peter Jackson's friends, how is the Halo game project coming along ?..."
I got this pretty free response:
"@jimmyjangles It's on hold - that's all we know. But thr R lots of cool projects coming out soon. District 9... Daybreakers... Avatar... :)"
So there you go, Halo Chronicles is on hold from a source in at least the same Wellington suburb as Peter Jackson's Wing Nut Films....
Avatar is the new James Cameron film so I'll be sure to check that out! District 9 is the new Neill Blomkamp Directed film - he was in line to direct the now defunct Halo movie. So indeed, as Weta said, cool projects coming soon - sci fi to boot!
