Halo director announced
Continuing Microsoft announcements, the company says that the director of the Halo movie will be Neill Blomkamp. Blomkamp is a virgin feature director, with most of his work having been in 3D animation for television. He will have help however, since the producers will be Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, best known for their collaboration on the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Jackson's Weta Workshop and Weta Digital will contribute to the special effects for the movie, set to debut in the summer of 2008.
