Halo Movie With Spielberg On-Board Heading For 2012?

Awesome if it ever happens.

It was about this time last year that we were reporting that Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks Studios could eventually be making a Halo movie a reality, with the franchise wrapped in a huge tangle of red tape preventing it from getting off the ground. It was speculated then, that DreamWorks might resort to using a Halo novelisation as a jumping off point for a movie, and a new report today suggests that may once again be the case.

Apparently, a Halo movie backed by Spielberg and DreamWorks could be in the offing for 2012, with a French press release for the Halo: Cryptum novel found over at revealing the following:

"A film adaptation is set for 2012. It will be conducted jointly by two heavyweights of American cinema: Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks."

This would appear to be a strong suggestion that if indeed there is a Halo movie in the pipeline for 2012, then it'll be based on the Halo: Cryptum novel by Greg Bear, the first book in the Forerunner Saga. That's the rumour, so all that's left to do now is wait and see if anything comes to fruition, and let's just hope it doesn't fizzle out like Neil Blomkamp and Peter Jackson's planned Halo movie project did. Could there be an announcement at the New York Comic-Con soon? Stay tuned.
