If you liked 28 Days Later... you probably won\'t like this [ Film & TV -> Update ]

More info on Film & TV: 28 Days Later | More info on Person: Uwe Boll | More info on Person: Alex Garland
If you liked the post-apocalyptic zombie film 28 Days Later, you might be interested to know that Alex Garland, the person who wrote that movie, is now going to write a script for a Halo movie.

"Halo" will present Garland with an adaptation challenge. It's one of the richest narratives in the vidgame world, developed over both games and three novels that extend the storyline. Plot concerns a warrior soldier known only as "Master Chief" battling a group of alien religious zealots who believe one of their most sacred artifacts is located on Earth.

Now I don't know about you, but I take issue with that particular bit of hype. Halo's narrative was as rich as Playboy is intellectual (and that's coming from a big fan of Bungie's early games).

Anyway, I expect an announcement that the director is Master of Disaster Uwe Boll is imminent, ensuring that any potentially interesting script Garland has written will be ruined.

You can read the rest of the announcement and some commentry here on Freeze Dried Movies.
