Well, it already has aliens, ancient artefacts, and . . . A sort of happy ending, what else is Spielberg adding?

If it falls over just after production starts does this mean we get a District 9 TV series? You know like with what happened to the film? If thats the case I'm totally for this! Other wise "woo Halo TV Series" *waves little flag* "oh look a biscuit woo" *waves little flag*

On a side note is that link going to be the way news is communicated in the future? No text just a video? Not a fan, I want a quick summary I can read at the very least.

Halo is mediocre at best and blown way out of proportion and overhyped. IMHO anyway. Results may vary.

Why the hell is this happening, yet we cant get a 40K movie? Oh, because GW keeps its IP chained in the basement.

First off, Halo isn't mediocre, it might not suit your needs and your but it has set many standards over the past decade and I enjoyed every single game and some of the novels.

Secondly, there is a 40k movie, that was below mediocre...

But let's not turn this into a bashing thread.

I am excited about this, though I have my doubts if Spielberg is the best choice.

Excitement and fear are mixing with me. If they can pull off another Forward Unto Dawn without breaking the lore and keeping everything awesome, then I'm excited. However, I'm afraid they'll screw it up. I doubt it'll be poorly executed, but I'm worrying mostly about lore and characters.
