The Halo Movie Delayed?

The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) has updated its listing for the Halo movie from a summer 2007 release date to sometime in 2008.

While no further information on the purported release date change is available at this time, many gamers could be left wondering whether the movie release date will have any affect on the release of the Halo 3 game. Many have predicted that the two will somehow be linked in order to achieve maximum coverage, however on the other hand Bungie Studios have said that neither one will affect the other.

According to IMDb, script writer Alex Garland was originally paid $1 million by Microsoft to write the Halo movie, Microsoft then sold the script to Universal Studios for $10 million.

After they crash-land on an artificial ring-world called "Halo", a marine captain, his surviving marines, and a genetically-and-surgically-enhanced supersoldier called "Master Chief" must find out what the Covenant, the genocidal alien race they are at war with, are looking for on the ring. However, Halo holds more secrets than either side imagined.
