Last year, Microsoft announced that a Steven Speilberg produced Halo TV series will be available on Xbox Live. Well, it looks like the first episode has its director.
Ironically, Blomkamp was going to direct a Halo movie that was going to be produced by Peter Jackson. That project never got off the ground so Blomkamp went on to make District 9 instead.
Hopefully Blomkamp gets the job and make the pilot excellent. It would be nice if he directs more episodes other than just the pilot.
