Halo fans who have been patiently waiting for a movie version of their beloved video game — especially after the previous version was killed a few years ago — might have a reason to celebrate in the near future. The folks over at IESB have reliable sources saying Steven Spielberg is currently in active negotiations to develop the Halo feature film adaptation.
Spielberg was reportedly blown away by writer Stuart Beattie’s script, Halo: The Fall of Reach, and is himself a huge gaming fan. Since the Dreamworks umbrella is currently looking for a tent pole to help launch their newly independent studio, this rumor could have some real legs.
