I hope they get to meet an E.T. - Speilberg takes a turn at Halo

In news sure to please Halo fans Steven Spielberg has signed on to produce a live-action TV series of the best-selling video game Halo. This no doubt follows due to the excellent success of the shorts ‘Forward Unto Dawn’ that were used to promote Halo 4.

Microsoft revealed its plans for a Halo series at the global launch of the new Xbox One console, which is set to replace the XBox 360 in spring. The series produced by Spielberg and 343 Studios will be exclusively available for XBox Live which is great as it means fans won’t need to buy the latest Halo game to enjoy the series.

Spielberg said:

"The Halo universe is an amazing opportunity to be at that intersection where technology and myth-making meet to produce something truly groundbreaking”.

Let’s hope Speilberg can pull of something amazing as Peter Jackson intended.
