Ok kiddos, the much anticipated HALO movie may be coming to the big screen much sooner than we expected. The wildly popular video games follow Master Chief, a cybernetically-enhanced human super-soldier, and his artificial intelligence (AI) companion, Cortana as they aide future humanity in battling the Covenant. So we are thinking action, aliens and atleast one hot chick.

Movie news site IESB has learned exclusively that one of the biggest producers in Hollywood history is currently in active negotiations to develop the feature film adaptation and no it’s not Jerry Bruckheimer or Peter Jackson. It’s the man behind Jaws, E.T., Indiana Jones and Transformers, Mr. Steven Spielberg.

Spielberg is blown away by writer Stuart Beattie’s take on the game in his script entitled HALO THE FALL OF REACH. This coupled with the fact that his Dreamworks umbrella is looking for a big tent pole to help launch their newly independant studio with distribution over at Walt Disney Pictures after losing Transformers to Paramount in the separation, it’s the perfect combination.

With Spielberg tipping this scales for this take on a video game movie, we can only hope he does it justice. We all know what happened to the Street Fighter series…ugh. /fail
