Nearly four years in development, Showtime’s Halo TV series may finally hit our living room screens sometime soon. According to documentation released by Production Weekly, Steven Spielberg’s Halo miniseries is scheduled to begin filming later this year.
This doesn’t give us a clear indication of when the show will actually begin. However, it’s a good sign as people began to doubt whether the show would ever reach daylight. In reaction to fans worrying if the project was still happening, last month Gary Levine, President of Programming at Showtime, confirmed that the project was indeed in development:
“[Halo] is absolutely still in development, still moving forward and I’m encouraged by what we’ve seen so far… It’s still live action, and it will definitely satisfy the fans of Halo and I think also satisfy the drama audiences of Showtime.”
Witch Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One hitting theatres later this month, it seems the time has finally come to move forward with the Halo project. An interesting tidbit considering the prevalence of Halo’s Spartans in the most recent trailer for the film.
As of now, not much is known about what’s to become of the Halo series. What would you like to see? Would you rather see a retelling of the Master Cheif trilogy, or perhaps something a little more grounded like Forward Unto Dawn?
