Steven Spielberg has been trying to get a series based on 343 Industries’ HALO made since 2013. SHOWTIME picked up the option for a live-action show in 2018, and it’s sort of been kicking around ever since. Today, a full-length trailer for “HALO” was released during the AFC Championship game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Spoiler, THE TRAILER DROPPED EARLIY!
Casting was announced in 2019, including Yerin Ha, Bokeem Woodbine, Shabana Azmi, Bentley Kalu, Natasha Culzac, and Kate Kennedy. Original Cortana actress Jen Taylor replaced Natascha McElhone. And of course, Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief.
In 2020, it was revealed that “Halo” had moved from SHOWTIME to the newly launched streaming service Paramount+. In 2021, we got our first tease of the series.
“Halo” is set to hit Paramount+ on March 24th, 2022.
