A new Halo movie, backed by Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks is apparently being prepped for release next year, according to new reports. Halo.fr, reports that the French press kit for the book Halo: Cryptum makes the following mention:
"A film adaptation is set in 2012. It will be conducted jointly by two heavyweights of American cinema: Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks."
Fans are now speculating that the film will be based on the Cryptum novel, the first in a series about the Forerunners written by Greg Bear.
Perhaps an announcement will be made at the imminent New York Comic-Con. We'll just have to wait and see.
