The good news: Script for Halo movie is finished…

halo movie theaterAnd now for the bad news…the screenplay has been written on "spec." Stuart Beattie, the writer that has been commissioned to produce the movie scripts for Spy Hunter, Gears of War, Splinter Cell, and the upcoming $170 million movie, G.I. Joe, has completed the screenplay for the Halo movie.

But since he’s doing it on "spec," that means that he did it of his own accord without being paid and is hoping that someone will buy it.

According to an inside source, the script for the Halo movie (spoiler warning) will involve:

"…a character-driven story about a soldier named John who was kidnapped or "conscripted" by the UNSC when he was just six years old, and then brutally trained to become an elite Spartan warrior known as Master Chief 117.

"The script then takes us through the horrific first contact with the Covenant hordes on the doomed colony world of Harvest, and then climaxes with the spectacular fall of the UNSC forward base on Reach, during which every other Spartan is slaughtered.

"The script also gives detailed outlines for the second movie, HALO: RISE OF THE FLOOD, which takes place entirely on the Halo ringworld, and the third and final movie, HALO: BATTLE FOR EARTH, which roughly follows the events of Halo 3, the game."

With the repeated false starts associated with the production of the Halo movie, we’ll all just have to wait and see if this really pans out or not. But the script details look very good and hopefully, this will be the push that will get Halo the Movie off and running.
