Spielberg chasing Halo movie rights - report

DreamWorks Pictures said to be keen on a movie based on the Halo novel tie-ins

Steven Spielberg is apparently looking to secure the rights to make a Halo film.


According to Vulture, DreamWorks Pictures wants to bring the Halo universe to the big screen using the Halo novel tie-ins as the source material.

The report claims that by citing different source material to that used by Universal and Fox for their failed Halo movie effort, DreamWorks can avoid getting drawn into a legal battle over the $12 million in screenwriting and production fees the film studios invested before the project collapsed.

It's an unconfirmed report, but juicy nonetheless.
