New Halo TV Series to be Made by Ridley Scott & Battlestar Galactica’s Director

By   /   Apr 3, 2014

We know about Microsoft’s Halo TV series that is being produced by Steven Spielberg, but this one is reportedly a different project.

The Halo series in question will be a digital feature project that has been described as chaptered film. On board are Ridley Scott and director Sergio Mimica-Gezzan; and they will be working together to churn it out this year!

Since Ridley Scott is famed for movies like Alien, Blade Runner and Prometheus, his selection by Microsoft sounds like an awesome plan. Gezzan on the other hand is a veteran TV director who is known for being a longtime collaborator in Steven Spielberg’s projects.

According to The Wrap, series developer 343 Industries and Xbox Entertainment Studios will also team up with the duo. Their report even goes on to claim that the team is planning to hire Paul Scheuring to write for them, Scheuring was the mind behind Prison Break.

Although it is expected that Microsoft will officially announce details of the new Halo tv series in June this year at the E3 conference; chunks of information have been pooled up.

One of the most important aspects is that the project is expected to follow the setting of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. It would be set in the 26th century and the protagonist won’t be Master Chief but some other ‘super soldier.’

You would know about Ridley Scott but if you wish to know where Gezzan comes from, here’s a list of movies/ TV series that he has directed: Saving Private Ryan, Minority Report, Independence Day, Heroes, Battlestar Galactica, The Pillars of the Earth and many more.

The new Halo series is expected to come out later this year.
