Spielberg producing Halo TV series


After several years of trying to get a film version up, the powers have opted instead to turn popular video-game “Halo” into a TV series – but with none other than Steven Spielberg calling the shots!

Spielberg will produce the live-action take for Microsoft’s Xbox. The TV series will include exclusive interactive Xbox One content that is created in partnership with 343 Industries and Xbox Entertainment Studios, according to Variety.

The series was announced during the launch of the Xbox One videogame console on Tuesday.

Australian screenwriter Stuart Beattie (“Pirates of the Caribbean”) had been involved in one of the many incarnations of a “Halo” film, but it hasn’t been announced who’s writing the series.
