Renewed Interest in Halo Movie, Says Jackson

Peter Jackson has given a tiny update on where he’s at with the recently shelved Halo movie. He expects renewed interest in the project once Halo 3 launches on Xbox 360 and the whole world has gone a bit Halo mad. Last October we reported that both Universal Pictures and 20th Century Fox backed out of co-financing the Halo movie to be directed by South African Neill Blomkamp. Apparently the filmmakers pulled out after Universal and Fox unsuccessfully tried to get the filmmakers and Microsoft to reduce their cut of the profits. It’s now been reported that Jackson expects renewed interest from Hollywood studios 20th Century Fox and Universal Pictures once the 360-exclusive launches on September 26. Jackson and Fran Walsh would be involved again in a Halo only if Blomkamp is the director. "We wouldn’t want to do it with anybody else. It’ll be Neill’s call." Doesn’t look like the Halo movie is out of the woods yet then. In other Jackson-related news - concerning a movie of The Hobbit - he said it continues to be "remote at this point". Just thought you might like to know.
