A project that has been rumored on and off for a year now is finally in the works and looking for a broadcasting station. The small-screen drama series based on the video game Halo and directed by Stephen Spielberg is close to closing a deal to bring the adaptation to Showtime, Variety reports. The official synopsis as released by Xbox earlier this week:
[blockquote]The “Halo” television series is a groundbreaking original series based on the award-winning “Halo” franchise. Award-winning filmmaker, director and producer Steven Spielberg will executive produce the live-action TV series, created in partnership with 343 Industries and Amblin Television.[/blockquote]
With two Halo projects in the works (the television series and the digital feature that will be executive produced by Ridley Scott and Scott Free TV President, David Zucker. Sergio Mimica-Gezzan will direct), Xbox has a lot of work coming up for them, and they’ve also been revealing other Xbox projects.
