Peter Jackson is set to produce the upcoming Halo movie.
The director, who is reported to be an avid fan of Halo, will use his Weta production facilities in Wellington, New Zealand where the film will also be shot. Alex Garland, author of popular novel The Beach, has written the script.
Considering how fantastic Lord of the Rings turned out, it should be safe to say that Halo will be an orgasmic experience for gamers everywhere. It's hard to imagine Peter Jackson getting involved in garbage, so I'm pretty confident Halo will turn out okay. It's not like Uwe Boll is directing or anything.
