...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.
