Zygote: Dakota Fanning Stars in Neill Blomkamp's Newest Short Film

Once upon a time we nearly got a live-action Halo movie with Neill Blomkamp as the director and Peter Jackson as the producer.

It's also a return to Blomkamp's roots, who first caught Hollywood's attention with his short films Alive in Joburg, which eventually became District 9, and the Halo-inspired Landfall.

Blomkamp is well known for being a big name director, heading films like District 9 and Elysium, but has scaled it back for his most recent endeavor. I want both going forward. "The other thing with full scale films, if pre-funded let us take whatever risk we want because they are not going to lose money". During a Reddit AMA Blomkamp says he would love to be a part of a Halo project in the future though if Microsoft asks.

"I love HALO. still". But i seem to have a bad track record of turning existing franchises into films. haha, Do i love the world? master chief? reach, the colonies, the flood, the covenant? YES.

While no one is asking him for a movie, Blomkamp did go on to include that he would be game for another round of Halo Landfall shorts.

So, it appears that both parties are interested in making something happen. The film never made it out of development, mostly because of artistic differences, though, if you ask Blomkamp it was because Microsoft was greedy and the studio didn't like his cyber-punk focus in the film. There's also the fact that Microsoft and 343 Industries are hard at work on Halo 6, which still hasn't been formally announced. "We are essentially doing a cinematic film in a very high end video game engine. this will be rendered out in traditional youtube film fashion, and views will watch like normal", Blomkamp wrote.
