...And it's Neil Blomkamp. If you're as in the dark as I was when this announcement was made, you may well know his work as the director of the Alive With Technology: The New Citroen C4 TV advert, but the only thing you really need to do to suddenly become excited about the prospect of a Halo film is watch his 2005 short film, Alive in Joburg. Depicting a version of South Africa in which aliens have become refugees, it's an amazingly strong and creative piece of work. The clearly Patlabor inspired Tetra Vaal is another (brilliant) work of his.

I couldn't care less about Halo (Hell, I still think the hero is called Master Chef) but suddenly I'm very interested.

I've seen his stuff before and he really knows how to handle CGI. Like the Robot film, the fight between the swat team and the robots is all CGI, the characters that is, not the environment.

Wow, so that Tetra Vaal thing was HIS work? I've always loved it but I wasn't interested in the Halo movie even when the director was announced, since I didn't know him. But now that you say he made Tetra Vaal, that puts things into a different...interesting perspective.

Gives me hope that this can end up being at the very least, watchable.
And possibly a lot more.

I also loved that Tetra Vaal video, had a copy of it all this time without actually knowing that he was the director. Admittedly, I'm suddenly quite pumped up about Halo. Could we... dare I say it... have a good video game movie?

But how come there is NO info whatsoever on either bungie.net, Universal or Fox websites? Isn't this just another rumour?

Tetra Vaal looks more like Appleseed than Patlabor.
