Neil Blomkamp has recently taken time out of his busy schedule (what with the Matt Damon-starrer Elysium coming up) in order to comment on the failed attempt to adapt the Halo videogame franchise to the big screens, with Blomkamp confirming that the project is officially dead, but states that he is still a big fan of the franchise:

“I actually still really like the universe and the world of Halo and the mythology of Halo,” explains the director. “If I was given control, I would like to do that film, but that’s the problem.”

“When something pre-exists, there’s this idea of ‘I have my interpretation of what that is,’ but along with it comes like 150 other people involved with the film’s interpretation of the same intellectual property and then the entire film-going audience has their interpretation that you can live up to or fail in their eyes.”
