Triple-Academy Award winners Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh ("The Lord of the Rings" trilogy) will serve as the executive producers of "Halo", the upcoming feature film based on Microsoft's phenomenally popular video game reports Rope of Silicon.
On top of that, its also been announced that Jackson's Weta Workshop Ltd. and Weta Digital Ltd. will be creating the creatures, miniatures and visual effects for the film. This agreement marks the first time that Jackson and Walsh have performed these services on a major studio film that Jackson is not directing.
"Halo" will be shot in its entirety in Wellington, New Zealand and the film is currently targeted for a Summer 2007 worldwide release. Universal will handle domestic distribution of the film, and Fox will handle the international release.
