Those concerned that the upcoming Halo movie was going to fall prey to the same fate as previous video game movies (ie: major suckage), may now have a reason to celebrate. Peter Jackson has been tapped as Executive Producer for 'Halo'.
Bungie's Joseph Staten says, "A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to partner with two tremendous Producers from Universal, Mary Parent and Scott Stuber. In the short time they've been on board, Mary and Scott have joined with Peter Schlessel to accomplish unimaginably wonderful things. Example? They've secured an Executive Producer to help guarantee the creative integrity and technical excellence of the Halo film. ... And that Executive Producer's name is Peter Jackson. ... Yes. The Peter Jackson, Executive Producing the Halo film."Word is that Jackson is also bringing in his WETA Digital special effects company onto the project as an added fanboy bonus.
