Neill Blomkamp has a history with Halo: he was attached as the director of the Peter Jackson produced Halo film that fell apart some years back and he directed the live action Halo 3 promotional film. He knows the universe and his style is a perfect fit for the Haloverse. That said, it’s very exciting that Blomkamp may be directing the première episode of the Halo television series that was announced for Xbox One. While this has yet to be officially confirmed, the thought of a Blomkamp directed episode of the Halo TV series is exciting.
A trailer for Neill Blomkamp’s upcoming science fiction film Elysium has been released. This is Blomkamp’s first filme since his 2009 feature film debut with the Academy Award nominated District 9. Elysium stars Matt Damon and is scheduled for an August 9 release this year.
