It was recently reported that financial backers Universal (makers of Bean II) and Fox (distributors of The Marine) had backed out of funding a movie based on the successful video game franchise Halo.
According to James Brightman of Hollywood Reporter, predictions that this may prevent a film from ever being released are premature. The creative team of Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh are still very much behind the movie, as is Microsoft.
Having played the first game and enjoyed its narrative nature, I very much look forward to a big screen adaptation of the Master Chief. I have watched enough computer based fan-films and I want to see the story super-sized.
