Peter Jackson was interviewed about the facts about the Halo movie. His answers were short…
Question: You’re still producing Halo?
Question: What attracted you to Halo?
Jackson: I’m a fan of the game.
Question: But video game movies suck.
Jackson: They do.
Question: So what will be different?
Jackson: Hopefully it won’t suck.
Question: But why not direct?
Jackson: I want a break. I want to have the fun but not the hard work. I just want to be part of the creative team but not actually have the pain.
Question: Is there a director?
Jackson: Not yet, no. We’re talking to some people but we’re going to be shooting that next year.
Question: Should we plan an Oscar party?
Jackson: I don’t think so. I don’t think these are the types of films that get Oscar attention. That was never the intention with Kong. I don’t necessarily think that will be the case.
