"What happened was this: Universal, on behalf of both studios, asked for a meeting with the filmmakers just prior to the due date of a significant payment. Basically, they said that in order to move forward with the film, the filmmakers had to significantly reduce their deals. They waited until the last minute to have this conversation. Peter and Fran, after speaking with their producing partners and with Microsoft and Bungee (the studio that designed the original game), respectfully declined."

</div>Yeah, I didn't mind watching Doom3. Resident Evil is still my favorite attempt at a conversion.

I still wouldnt mind seeing master chief in live action. Even if it did flop as a good critical movie goes the fanbase is still pretty large enough to support some type of profit. I think this is a shame.

</div>I think the only way anyone could mess up the halo empire is by revealing his face or jacking up the multiplayer.

They should also cancel the Halo Wars RTS while they are at it.

It wasn't cancelled. Universal and Fox just decided not to financially support Microsoft in making the movie and Microsoft is now looking for new distribution partners. Read the article, it specifically says that they are still working on it.

</div>Master chief is a red head with light fickles and silver-black hair. His appearance chaged into that after the surgery

</div>It was a money dispute - not the creators trying to save the image or anything<br />

</div>I was gonna put that clarification in my post - but what are the chances that they will find another studio to pick up a dropped movie?

If it's Halo, people will pick it up. That game made 250 Million dollars in its first day (50 million copies x $50 each) People will go to see it, it is inevitable. <br />
<br />
No, they shouldn't cancel Halo Wars, because that's seemed like an awesome idea since day 1.<br />
<br />
I've never seen a video game based movie that stuck in my head as amazing, or else I would comment on that too.

</div>way to read the article <img src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
the reason that it was dropped was that the studios suddenly changed the terms of the deal giving less money to M$ and Bungie - and M$ and Bungie rejected the deals<br />
<br />
on second thought -that's in the original post. way to read the title and nothing else <img src="/images/smilies/lachen.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Lachen" class="inlineimg" />

Halo is so over rated though, I mean it is an okay game but there are plenty that are better

</div>Why do you think they offered less money?<br />
<br />
It sure wasn't because they "didn't have enough".

Doom doesn't have the elaborate plot of Halo. I mean come on, theres like 4 600-page novels on Halo out there. FEAR would also make a very good thriller movie.
