For those eagerly awaiting the release of Halo: The movie, prepare to be disappointed. According to an online source, Universal and Fox Studios have pulled out of the Halo movie adaptation, citing rising movie costs and concern over the inexperience of first time director Neil Blomkamp. As the budget was rumored to be edging closer to $200 million, and Microsoft getting a lion's share of the profits, the studio execs decided it was time to pull the plug.

Microsoft hasn't made things much easier, demanding an upfront fee of five million for the rights and 10% of the profits -- especially when movies based on video games have never been huge performers at the box office. This isn't to say the movie still couldn't get made. Peter Jackson who is Executive Producing, is still attached and pre-production continues on the film, although without a studio home it now faces a serious uphill battle.
