After years of silence, development, and delays, that Halo TV series may finally be moving into production.
The series, adapted by Showtime and directed by Steven Spielberg, has appeared on Production Weekly with a production date beginning in October. The listing (as spotted by PursueNews) also reveals that filming will begin in Budapest, Hungary.
The Halo TV show was first announced in 2013, but fans didn’t see much progress right away. Though Xbox boss Phil Spencer and other people associated with the project would occasionally comment that the project was still “alive,” very little news about it actually emerged. More news has started picking up in 2018, however, and in early March Production Weekly listed that the show was set to enter production this fall. Showtime also confirmed in January that production would be moving forward.
As for the content of the show, we don’t know much about it, but it will be filmed in live-action and based around the game series.
We’ll be sure to update if Showtime or Spielberg make any official announcements.
