Elysium Director Thankful For Halo Movie Collapse
Posted on Monday, August 5 @ 10:00:00 PST by Alex_Osborn
Film directorNeill Blomkamp was originally set to direct theHalofilm before the project was ultimately scrapped. Ironically, this ended up working out in Blomkamp's favor, providing him the opportunity to work with Peter Jackson to createDistrict 9.
As such, Blomkamp is quite thankful for the cancellation of theHalomovie, if only because of what arose from the ashes. He told theLA Times:
The luck is the fact that Peter and Fran let me make [‘District 9’] out of the ruins that were ‘Halo’. What happened out of that was learning to trust my ideas. If ‘Halo’ had come out and succeeded or failed, I wouldn’t have learned that.Fun fact:District 9is my favorite movie of all time, so I'm inclined to agree with Mr. Blomkamp here. That said, I would still love to see him make aHaloflick, as there's no doubt in my mind that he would be the best man for the job.
Neill Blomkamp's latest film, Elysium, hits theaters later this week.
