Earlier last month, Showtime gave a small update on the long-awaited Halo TV series which has been in development for nearly four years. But it looks like the network is finally ready to move forward with the project’s production.
According to Production Weekly, filming of Steven Spielberg’s Halo miniseries will begin in fall this year. Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank and Alex Maggioni from Amblin Television are attached to the project as producers. So it’s safe to say the Ready Player One director is still attached to the project as well.
In the update from last month (via TV Guide), Showtime’s president of programming, Gary Levine teased that the live action series would interest Halo fans as well as audiences that show an interest in drama. Here’s what he had to say:
“[Halo] is absolutely still in development, still moving forward and I’m encouraged by what we’ve seen so far… It’s still live action, and it will definitely satisfy the fans of Halo and I think also satisfy the drama audiences of Showtime.”
After Levine implied that he felt encouraged by what he’s “seen”, some form of an update was expected. Perhaps, since Spielberg’s completion of Ready Player One, the director was finally able to shift his focus on the much-awaited TV series.
Fun fact, the Halo assault rifle was also cleverly planted in the upcoming Ready Player One movie as spotted from the trailer. It led many fans to believe that it was, in fact, a hint that the TV show is still in development.
The news, if confirmed, is sure to excite fans as the delay in announcement had many in doubts if it would ever go into production.
The project currently lies with no casts and a director to helm the series. Stay tuned with Pursue News for updates related to Halo and other TV shows.
