Why Is There Still No Halo Movie?

TG Daily has a small write-up on the history of the Halo major motion picture, and some ideas about why it has never come to fruition:

“So why didn’t it come together? Well, for starters, it would have been way too expensive, even with today’s FX technology. In fact, Universal turned it down to make Land of the Lost instead, which was a major flop, but it must have made more sense on paper to spend $100 million on that instead.

“Halo sold a lot of video games, that’s a good starting point,” Fritz continues, “but is it a property that will turn into a good story? Does it have compelling characters that will appeal to people outside the gamer audience? You have to remember, every video game bought generates $50-60 dollars, and a movie ticket is $10, so you need to generate the same amount of money, you need to bring in five times as many people. So the amount of people who buy a game are just not enough to support a successful film, certainly not a big budget effects film.””
