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.
