  1. Halo was a long term pet project for Peter Jackson who had his ‘Halo Chronicles’ which were released on You Tube, his creative team developed weapons and specialised vehicles and other designs for a proposed major feature film to be directed by Neill Blomkamp, the project fell apart because of studio politics and it was decided to instead turn Blomkamp’s short film ‘Alive in Joburg’ into a feature film retitled ‘District 9’ in 2009.
    I’m sure Peter Jackson will be watching this new Paramount+ series with interest and wonder what could have been.
