Halo ODST live action series

Post by Felix on Thu Sep 08, 2011 3:25 pm

So I keep forgetting to ask this, but has anyone heard about this? Apparently they are supposed to be making a Halo live action series, but I can't seem to find any info anywhere about it.

The only reason I knew about it was because my mom gave me an email about it (because some guy I interviewed once on a radio show is supposed to be the lead or something) and since then I have deleted it.

I was wondering if anyone has heard/knows any info on it?

It is supposed to "drop" November or December if I recall.

It seemed liked an actual series, I'll have to ask my mom about it again.

Huh.
Six months of camping the HBO forums, and I've yet to hear about it. She probably heard about the "Landfall" shorts.

Still, a TV series about Helljumpers would be awesome if done correctly.

Indeed.

I say no Spartans or familiar faces either. Make some new characters to love out of some marines, ODST's, generals, captains, even maybe some civilians etc etc. Gotta have some episodes for the Covenant too. In alien dialoge perhaps? I wouldn't mind subs.

Jeez, look at me thinking so far ahead for this. Probably not even gonna happen. At least not likely for a long while.

I would love it though. Hell, even if it was an internet series like the Mortal Kombat ones they're making now. I'd watch it.

Well it did have 2011 as the airing date, so maybe it is a new bunch of shorts?

I'll ask her about it and get back with info if I can.

No Spartans, and no Forerunner relics. That would make me happy.

Usually, civilians are only cool if they do something that civilians wouldn't normally do. Otherwise they're boring and not involved really.
Skilled writers can overcome this, but most people aren't skilled writers.

Well really an average soldier wouldn't be that interesting either. Not as interesting as a movie character, that is.

I'd like it to be about regular marines, with the occasional ODST or Spartan. ODST's and Spartans are really over done.

It would be a movie based on a guy saying about two funny things before being shot.


Ten minute movie.

It's about the experiences they face or the situation the characters are put in not just the simple fact that they may just be a civilian or just another faceless soldier. Actions speak louder then words etc etc.

Personaly I think a short story/episode where it is focused around a human colony under attack by Covenant while still being evacuated would be a nice read/nice watch. Perhaps a Father or Mother or Brother etc having to care for family or something trying to escape to be evacuated. That person forced to pick up a rifle, make touch decisions or do someting that they normally wouldn't (just as BB said) would be cool to see. I think it would be interesting to see how humans who don't know much of the enemys they're government is facing would react to the Covenent. Even more so due to the fact that the Covie's are way more then 1 species.

Yes, seen that done that in other stories and movies but not in this universe. At least not to my knowledge (still have not read evolutions). A familiar story in a different setting, I like to see how those would play out sometimes. And hey, if you don't like it, or the idea of it, then don't watch it.

Spartans and ODST are overdone because they're the only fun ones to watch.

Odst are better than marines becuase marines are squishy and are pretty much cannon fodder. Hence why if you want to film a series you want to have some characters who arent going to die of plasma burns episode 1.

So you're saying fragile people don't make good characters? What about Band of Brothers where any of the characters could have been killed by a gunshot wound? And several were. It was still a good show.

I think it would be kinda cool to get some stuff that ISN'T from a military perspective. That's what Cryptum did, and it was amazing. I even thought Cole Protocol was pretty entertaining to read - despite a few obvious problems with the overall story.
