'HALO' SF TV SERIES
While the premiere of Henry Cavill's Witcher has been pushed for next year, another epic TV series based on a massively popular video game has just found its lead star! Pablo Schreiber will lead the cast in HALO adaptation at Showtime! He will topline the new fantasy series as Master Chief, Earth’s most advanced warrior in the 26th century and the only hope of salvation for a civilization pushed to the brink of destruction by the Covenant, an unstoppable alliance of alien worlds committed to the destruction of humanity.
|Newcomer Yerin Ha will also star in the new series|
The production on the show based on the game sold in over 77 million copies around the world will begin this Autumn in Hungary. Pablo Schreiber has an Emmy nomination for his role in Orange is the new Black. He will also star in Chris Evans series Defending Jacob at Apple's new streaming service. Otto Bathurst, whose recent Robin Hood movie was visually stunning albeit a bit bad as a film itself, is directing and producing the series.
Never played Halo but I do like a little sci-fi!ReplyDelete
Hope it will be massively epic!Delete
Is Halo still a thing? I remember it being all the rage 10-15 years ago, but I haven't really heard anything about it since.ReplyDelete
It obviously is, not that I'd know - I haven't played a game in my life... maybe Age of Empires when I did not have the Internet decades ago :)Delete
Well, these video games do have stories, so it makes sense the fans would like to see them done. Done well would be even better.ReplyDelete
Fingers and gauntlets crossed!Delete
