Rumor: Halo movie has a new script

Last we heard, the big-budget, big screen adaptation of Halo was undeniably and reliably dead. But if a Latino Review source is to be believed, it may have another shot, thanks to a fresh script by Stuart Beattie, the same fellow working on Spy Hunter, Splinter Cell and Gears of War flicks for several studios. It's reportedly called Halo: Fall of Reach, based on the novel of the same name.

Now, even if this story is true, this is just a guy writing a script (albeit a well-known guy), so we're not about to change the film's status to "mostly dead." But if you need to do that in your heart to make your day a bit easier to bear, we completely understand.
