The man repeatedly said the big screen adaptation of the popular first-person shooter game is dead, for now.
Since "Halo" was announced to be suspended last year, many sure have been waiting for any good news about the big screen adaptation of the popular game to get launched back into production. However, chance looks little to see it happen if looking from the statement made by one-time director Neill Blomkamp.
Talking about the movie to Creativity Online, Blomkamp, who made three short films for the recently-released "Halo 3", shockingly stated that the "film is entirely dead" and "whatever happens with that movie, assuming that movie gets made, will be a totally different configuration."
"...the film collapsed at the end of last year, and it's been dead, ever since then," so he stressed while adding that he did not have even one percent of his mind to try and resurrect the big screen project during the making of the short pieces.
Though so, Blomkamp, on the other hand, did indicate that there may be a possibility for him to hold out for reconciliation with the studios in getting the movie back.
"As I'm getting older one of the things I've realized most about this industry is never say never. That's the first thing," he remarked. "Right now, I can't see myself doing that film. But I'm not going to say that I'm not going to do it."
