The Blizzard Entertainment of Movies

For those of you who are fans of Halo, this interview with Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, executive producer of the forthcoming Halo feature film, is encouraging to say the least:

Peter Jackson: Fran [Walsh], Philippa [Boyens] and I are not writing the script, but, in a sense, one of the things we're contributing with our involvement in the project is being the police, the script cops! So, nothing is going to end up on the screen that doesn't get our stamp of approval. We're going to be pretty tough with the script. We're not going to spare people's feelings...

We obviously know a lot of the world of HALO that the story's going to take part in. So, there's a lot of very productive work that's underway at the moment while the script takes whatever (amount of time). As far as I'm concerned it should take as long as it needs to take until it's a good script. We are slowly tugging away at it, getting it there...

Peter Jackson: the Blizzard Entertainment of movies. (Or if you prefer, Blizzard Entertainment: the Peter Jackson of games.)
