Bungie today made a pretty major announcement regarding one of the folks behind the forthcoming Halo movie. While it was already known that Microsoft and Bungie were doing everything in their power to take care of their premiere Xbox franchise, with having picked Alex Garland to pen the film's script (he also wrote the praised 28 Days Later), they've now announced the second major talent behind the film.
Acting as Executive Producer will be none other than Lord of the Oscars himself, Peter Jackson. Let that sink in for a second.
Good? Along with Peter acting as Executive Producer on the film, he brings along WETA Digital as the film's acting special effects house. The studio already turned heads 'til they snapped with its work on the three Lord of the Rings films, and now they've got the opportunity to bring Master Chief's universe alive. We know we can't wait to see what the Covenant will look like in the hands of WETA.
Halo movie with LOTR quality effects, interesting...very interesting...
