Many years ago, 343 Industries announced that a Halo television show was in the works. Acclaimed directors like Steven Spielberg were also attached to the project. Since then, we haven't heard many details about the show and many suspected that plans had been scrapped. It turns out that wasn't the case at all. Today, Kiki Wolfkill, Head of Transmedia at 343 Industries, officially revealed Showtime's Halo series.
Wolfkill issued the following statement on Halo Waypoint.
We are working with some incredible talent to bring you an epic new story experience set in the Halo Universe. Showtime brings its powerful legacy of experience in building stories for premium cable and together with Amblin Television and legendary storyteller Steven Spielberg, have been gracious partners in helping put together the right creative team to bring Halo to television. We are thrilled to have experienced showrunner Kyle Killen and blockbuster director Rupert Wyatt on board, both of whom bring their own flavor of vision, intelligence, and voice to Halo... We're already in the pre-production phase and we plan to go into full production in 2019.
The fact that individuals who worked on Lone Star and Rise of the Planet of the Apes are attached to the project instills confidence. Hopefully the show will be on the level of acclaimed Showtime projects like Dexter or The Tudors.
It's unclear who the central character is but we're hoping that it features Master Chief. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more. Until then, rejoice in the fact that legendary creators like Spielberg and Wyatt are on the team.
