Director Neill Blomkamp (District 9) was originally slated to direct a live-action Halo movie that would have blown our minds. Unfortunately, pre-production was a nightmare, so Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings) opted to produce District 9 instead with Neill Blomkamp in the director's chair. Fortunately, this turned out perfect as District 9 is now regarded as one of the great sci-fi movies of our time. Unfortunately though, since Halo fell through, we only get this tease of a short film from Blomkamp. Here's to hoping that he'll eventually return to the material.
