It'll look very similar to Avatar I should imagine. After watching Avatar, I thought it reminded me of Halo.
I understand they won't have Master Chief as such, as you never see his face (but he could be played by The Stig)

Neil Bloomkamp was going to direct Halo, produced by Peter Jackson, but that fell through, so he made District 9 instead.

Halo has now kind of gone into limbo and may not be made.

Although IMDB still lists it was 2012, there is no director attached.

For the Mortal Kombat fans.
If you go to you tube and search for New Mortal Kombat Movie, you will see what looks like a promising film.

I dont believe it is actually getting made into a film though.

A Thief movie would be interesting. I imagine a lot of people are calling for Assassin's Creed as well.

Half-Life would make a brilliant movie, were it not for the fact that Gordon never speaks: If he didn't speak in the movie, it would be totally unwatchable; if he did, the atmosphere would be ruined.

Actually the real problem is that Gordon Freeman is who the player makes it: He can be a cautious, softly spoken man who has been deeply shocked by the Combine invasion, or he can be a heroic, outspoken, rebellious person with a strong stomach and an iron grip. Whatever they cast him as, a lot of people would end up very upset. Your reaction to the world is Gordon's reaction.

Well actually I read on IMDB that they are making HALO the popular game for the XBOX series into a film and I must say I am actually looking forward to this.

I did quite like Tomb Raider, it was a pretty good film but saying that I don't think there is any other films I have enjoyed that are remakes of a game.

Oh yes, I watched that. Mostly I stopped because I haven't played the original Half Life yet :oops: . Don't want any more spoilers. Speaking of which, have you seen this? Can't wait :D .
