“Halo” & “Gears” Movies Dead?

image Despite big sales, two of the biggest video games in the past year aren’t going to be getting film adaptations anytime soon it seems.

Previously announced “Halo” director Neill Blomkamp told Creativity Online that “The film is entirely dead. In the configuration it was in. Whatever happens with that movie, assuming that movie gets made, will be a totally different configuration. It’s not so much me as the entire vessel sank. The film collapsed at the end of last year, and it’s been dead, ever since then. I’ll be curious to see what happens.”

Meanwhile, The IESB reported late last week that a film version of Xbox 360 game “Gears of War” was unlikely to happen due to budgetary constraints at New Line and that Director Len Wiseman was definitely off the film. That report however is now in question.

I’m sure they’ll eventually get made, but it would be wise to have gotten these off the ground now as opposed to years later when no one cares anymore…see Super Mario Bros, Street Fighter, Wing Commander, Double Dragon, Doom…I mean the list keeps getting bigger…
