Ridley Scott To Executive Produce Halo Digital Feature

3 April 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Microsoft have announced today that Ridley Scott is currently working on a Halo digital feature. A press release revealed that Xbox Entertainment Studios and Scott Free Productions – Scott’s own company – “are proud to announce a new Halo…project to be released later this year.” The director, who is responsible for kick-starting the Alien franchise and directing the sci-fi, dystopian film Blade Runner, is attached as executive producer.

The digital feature is set to be directed by Sergio Mimica-Gezzan, who has worked on several episodes of Battlestar Galactica, while the creator of the TV series Prison Break, Paul Scheuring, will potentially be attached to the project as a writer.

This latest Halo news is similar to the announcement of the TV adaptation of the popular Fps title, which is being produced by Steven Spielberg. However, while the latter is said to be a live-action feature, neither project is being described as a Halo movie. »

Ridley Scott producing Halo digital feature project?

3 April 2014 2:34 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ridley Scott will reportedly serve as executive producer on a new Halo digital project.

The project is being developed by 343 Industries, Xbox Entertainment Studios and the Alien director's own Scott Free Productions, according to The Wrap.

Sergio Mimica-Gezzan, whose previous credits include Battlestar Galactica and Heroes, is reportedly on board as director.

It is not associated with Steven Spielberg's previously announced Halo project.

It will share similarities with Machinima's 'Forward Unto Dawn' mini-series, focusing on a super-soldier who is not Master Chief.

Microsoft is planning to reveal more during this year's E3 gaming expo in June.

The firm previously denied reports that Ridley Scott had signed on to direct a Halo feature length film.

Microsoft hopes to debut original TV content on Xbox 360 and Xbox One early this year. »

Ridley Scott producing Halo 'digital feature'

2 April 2014 10:56 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 3 Apr 2014 - 06:56

A director is found and Ridley Scott is set to produce a new 'digital feature' based on the Halo series...

Once upon a time, the videogame series Halo was to be brought to the big screen by Peter Jackson, with District 9 and Elysium helmer Neill Blomkamp directing. The plug was eventually pulled on that over budget concerns, and since then, there's been little obvious sign that a Halo film was being resurrected. Instead, a live action TV series, being produced by Steven Spielberg, is planned for the end of this year.

However, The Wrap is now reporting that a Halo 'digital feature' is on the way, and that Ridley Scott is set to produce it. Furthermore, a director has been hired, with Sergio Mimica-Gezzan set to oversee the project. He's directed episodes of shows such as Battlestar Galactica and Heroes in the past. »

Microsoft Adds Another Live-Action Halo Digital Project; Ridley Scott to Produce, Sergio Mimica-Gezzan to Direct

2 April 2014 7:56 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Turns out there was something behind that Ridley Scott/Halo rumor from January.  The Wrap reports Scott and David Zucker of Scott Free will produce a live-action Halo project with Xbox Entertainment Studios and 343 Industries.  Sergio Mimica-Gezzan (Battlestar Galactica) will direct from a script by Paul Scheurig (Prison Break), set in the 26th century around "a surgically-enhanced super soldier who is not Master Chief."  The format of the "chaptered digital feature project" is reportedly similar to Machima's Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn five-part series. Note that this is entirely separate from Steven Spielberg's live-action Halo project, although Mimic-Gezzan served as first assistant director on eight Spielberg films including Minority Report and Saving Private Ryan.  It is expected Microsoft will reveal more about Scott's Halo project at E3 in June and release it by the end of 2014.  Watch the first part of Forward Unto Dawn after the jump. »
