The Oscar-winning creative team behind the “The Lord of the Rings” films, including director Peter Jackson, has been named to run the production of the upcoming film based on Microsoft Corp.’s blockbuster “Halo” video game, the company said on Tuesday. Jackson and his wife, Fran Walsh, will serve as the executive producers for “Halo,” which is targeted for worldwide release in mid-2007 by Universal Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox film studios. Universal will oversee the film’s production and domestic distribution. Fox will handle international distribution. “Halo” will be shot in Wellington, New Zealand, and will use Jackson’s production and post-production facilities there. “I’m a huge fan of the game and look forward to helping it come alive on the cinema screen,” Jackson said in a statement.
