INFO: More on Halo the Motion Picture

For the record, HALO the Motion Picture is not dead.  It’s been backburnered.  Here’s the press release.

As was previously confirmed, we deeply regret that both Universal and Fox did not choose to move forward with financing the Halo film under the original terms of the agreement. At this time Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, along with their partner, Microsoft, have mutually agreed to postpone making a feature film based on the Halo video game universe until we can fulfill the promise we made to millions of Halo fans throughout the world that we would settle for no less than bringing a first class film to the big screen. We are fully supportive of Director Neill Blomkamp’s vision of the film. Neill is a tremendously gifted filmmaker and his preliminary work on Halo is truly awe-inspiring. While it will undoubtedly take a little longer for Halo to reach the big screen, we are confident that the final feature film will be well worth the wait.

In the mean time, you simply have to check this out:

This is full high definition video by the way, brought to you as only Silverlight can.  Now with that in mind, take a look at the heads up display in the Warthog because if you look carefully, you can make out the Elite & Grunt kill count:

Here’s a high resolution shot of the actual Warthog that was used in the filming of this short:
