Del Toro Discussed as Possible "Halo" MakerIESB.net, a "Hellboy" helmer might be breathing fire into the long-awaited film version of the video game "Halo."
Producer Peter Jackson ? he of "King Kong" and "Lord of the Rings" fame ? told the site that "Hellboy" director Guillermo del Toro is someone he?s in talks with right now to take the reigns on "Halo."
If del Toro signs on to direct "Halo," the site suggests that someone else might have to come onboard to direct the upcoming "Hellboy 2" ? the first draft has just been handed into Sony, they said ? because the big man won?t have time to do it.
The movie, based on a 2001 game, is a complex mix of mythology, characters and worlds and follows the adventures of futuristic super-soldier Master Chief as he fights to save mankind from an alien race.
