In case you haven't heard, there's a big gaming convention coming next week. It goes by the name Electronic Entertainment Expo (or E3 for short). There, Microsoft will be revealing new games for the upcoming next generation console, Xbox One. Now it looks like one of Microsoft's most important franchises will be at the show as well.
With the chaos of 2013 Upfronts behind us and most network series approaching, or airing their season finales, us TV writers assumed the biggest bombs had already been dropped. Enter today's Xbox One reveal presentation from Microsoft, revealing that Steven Spielberg will produce a 'Halo' live-action TV series based on the ever-popular games of the same name! Apparently!
For the past twenty or so years we've seen all sorts of video games adapted into decent movies. We've dealt with the so-so 'Resident Evil' movie franchise, the laughably bad 'Super Mario Bros' film, but what fans of this video game generation were really curious to see was what kind of cinematic magic filmmaker Neill Blomkamp ('District 9') and producer Peter Jackson could possibly do on 'Halo.' Unfortunately we never found out (and we never will).
