Report: Ridley Scott producing a Halo digital feature due this year

Posted on April 3, 2014 AT 01:57pm

Ridley Scott of Blade Runner, Alien, and Metroid-inspiring fame will produce a digital feature based in the Halo universe directed by Sergio Mimica-Gezzan, TheWrap reports.

According to TheWrap, the project will be live-action and hit before the year ends. And while it will tell the story of a “surgically enhanced super soldier” the armored space warrior won’t be Master Chief.

Paul Scheuring, creator of Prison Break, is rumored to be the project’s scribe. This Ridley Scott–produced Halo feature is not related to the Xbox One TV series being produced by Steven Spielberg.

Mimica-Gezzan has directed six episodes of the reimagined Battlestar Galactica series, two episodes of Heroes, and episodes of Prison Break, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and Falling Skies. He also served as first assistant director on Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan, and Minority Report.
