Halo Landfall Short Film by Neill Blomkamp

Producer Peter Jackson announced in 2007 that completely untested director Neill Blomkamp would be directing a Halo movie. There were funding problems, and creative differences between Microsoft, Bungie, and Jackson. Blomkamp worked on the movie for five months, but stopped his involvement in October 2007 to work on his first full-length movie, District 9, which was released in August 2009. After the Halo movie fell apart, Blomkamp was hired to direct three short films to promote the September 2007 release of the Halo 3 video game. As early as October 2007, fans compiled the three short films into a single film just over six minutes in length, and made the project available as Landfall. This is perhaps the closest thing we have to imagining what his Halo movie would have looked like...
