Spartans never die, readers; they're just Missing In Action. Likewise, it seems that rumors of a movie based on the Halo series also will not die.

In case the news – straight out of Peter Jackson's mouth to your earholes – that the episodic Halo Chronicles project was "no longer happening" wasn't enough to confirm the wreckage of Microsoft's (impossibly?) ambitious plan, here comes word from the other half of the Halo movie projec...

So there was talk about Stuart Beattie – you may know him better as that guy adapting Gears of War for the big screen – giving the stalled Halo movie some much needed TLC in the form of a new script based on Eric Nylund's novel Halo: Fall of Reach. The original source of that rumor now...

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 sever...
