Halo Series Coming to Showtime
I am not surprised that a TV series is being developed for Showtime. For a while now we have two animated movies and two live-action films that worked well. Now Showtime is now jumping on the Sci-Fi scene looking to bring the UNSC Spartans full story.
“Today we announced that we are working with some incredible talent to bring you an epic new story experience set in the Halo Universe, the Halo TV series. SHOWTIME brings its powerful legacy of experience in building stories for premium cable and together with Amblin Television and legendary storyteller Steven Spielberg, have been gracious partners in helping put together the right creative team to bring Halo to television. We are thrilled to have experienced showrunner Kyle Killen (Lone Star) and blockbuster director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) on board, both of whom bring their own flavor of vision, intelligence, and voice to Halo. We couldn’t have asked for a stronger or more passionate team to collaborate with.”
Some would be worried about video games making it to the big screen or even the little screen like “Mortal Kombat Conquest”, but Halo already showed that they have the means and the skills to make it work. I am looking forward to seeing what comes out of it and who would be the picks for the characters. Real talk, there have been other adaptations of this story technically like Kurt Russel in Solider, pretty much the same concept of the Spartan Program. Either way, this is a good move for Showtime and I would recommend checking out the books starting with the Fall of Reach that gives you the whole backstory of the first Spartans and a young John a.k.a Master Chief.
In the meantime, share your thoughts on the upcoming Halo series, have you checked out the movies or animated movies? Which story was your favorite and where do you feel they should begin? This is just a short topic to get into, but looking forward to further details. – Beast Out –
