The Great Hollywood Journey, Part II: This is direct from Bungie:
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.
I’ll give you a second to process. If you’re having a strong, emotional reaction, don’t panic. When I heard the news it took me the better part of a day just to stop smiling.
Yes. The Peter Jackson, Executive Producing the Halo film.
Looks like our fears about Uwe Boll were unfounded.
What This Links To
yes, they were unfounded, but it is an interesting note that Jackson is signed on as Executive Producer. That’s not the director…
That’s not the director…
Too true. I’m sure Mr. Jackson has his hands full with the upcoming King Kong movie, then he’s already got The Hobbit on his calendar after that. When is he going to squeeze Halo in?
Jackson is signed on as Executive Producer. That’s not the director…
True, but an argument could be made that he’ll have more influence over the film as a producer than a director. Given his current level of power in Hollywood, what director is going to do anything less than exactly what Mr. Jackson wants?
What director is going to do anything less than exactly what Mr. Jackson wants?
The exact sort we’ve been fearing… the sort who will insist that Halo incorporate car chases and sex scenes that just don’t belong…
But if they already got Jackson on this, that gives me hope that they won’t be that stupid or desperate.
