Hints of Halo film content

Fresh off of being put in the spotlight, Neill Blomkamp has had a few things to say about where the Halo movie will be headed. The Master Chief, for example, will be more than a CG shell. "Well, the film has to have a feeling of reality, and so that means that I want to keep him real as much as I can, there is a necessity for him to become CG in sequences where a guy in a suit would just not work, but for the most part I am aiming for real." Will we see the Chief's face? "You'll have to wait and see." A more concrete statement came in talk of the Flood. "I absolutely love the Flood, more importantly I love infected humans and Covenant, so that will absolutely have its place in the film. Halo is a perfect project for me, because it contains so many different things that fascinate me, one of which is the idea of biological evolution, and the Flood is essentially a virus, it is a near perfect organism in terms of how resilient it is against natural threats, this feeling of evolution and why organisms evolve a certain way ties into the Covenant and even the humans. And then of course on a pure thrill ride basis having the audience run into the Flood in a narrow dark hallway is awesome." For more comments by Blomkamp, follow the link.
