Game on for Halo despite studio pullout

October 23, 2006 at 2:13 pm by xoanon  - 

Reports that it was game over for Peter Jackson’s Halo movie are being shot down by industry insiders. Universal and Fox have pulled out of the movie deal but Microsoft and Jackson are reporting business as usual. “If you remember during King Kong Peter explained how King Kong was gonna be before Lord of the Rings and it fell over and back it came again…it’s just part of film making,” says Weta Ltd spokesperson Jamie Wilson. Rumours of a budget blow-out have been denied. Jackson and his producing partners, including Microsoft, claim Universal and Fox asked them to reduce their profit take. They declined, confidant the project is safe. Recently the game Doom was made into a feature film that barely broke even at the box office. [More]
