Halo movie happening... uh, again?

Remember like three years ago when Peter Jackson and Neill Blomkamp were making a film based on the Halo video game series? Yeah, well that's obviously not happening anymore. Jackson is now producing The Hobbit, with Guillermo Del Toro at the helm, and Neill Blomkamp is back to watching One Life to Live in his underwear. The hellish debacle that was the Halo film is long over and somewhat forgotten.

But according to Latino Review, Stuart Beattie (he wrote the Pirates of the Caribbean scripts) is making the studio rounds with a speculative script for Halo: Fall of Reach.
Halo: Fall of Reach is a 2001 science fiction novel by Eric Nylund based on the Halo series of video games and acts as a prequel to Halo: Combat Evolved, the first game in the series. It is set in the fictional Halo universe, taking place in the 26th century across several planets and locations. The novel details the events which led up to the game and explains the origins of the SPARTAN II super soldiers, narrating the story of the series protagonist, the Master Chief.
That image above is a piece by conceptual artist Kasra Farahani, who has done five pieces for the film. Latino Review will be posting the rest of the concept art over the course of the next few weeks, and I'll keep everyone posted.
