Story Text:

Due for release in summer 2007, Universal and Fox studios have begun production of a film based on the hugely-popular Xbox game, Halo. The screenplay has been written by Alex Garland whose previous credits include the novel and film adaptation of The Beach and zombie-horror film 28 Days Later. He was reportedly paid $1 million for the Bungie-approved script.

Bungie are now looking for a director to do the world of Halo justice.

Bungie have said they are looking for "someone who's as committed to the Halo universe as Peter Jackson was to Tolkien's Middle-Earth".
