Uwe Boll to direct Halo movie??!?!?!?!?!?!


Say it isn't so! According to IMDB, Uwe Boll is going to direct Halo. If this is true, than take back anything I said about this film having a chance to be good, and to turn the tide of shitty game to movie adaptations.

If Uwe Boll is directing Halo, then in a word, it's fucked.

Seriously, why? Why can't a competent director be hired to direct a video game film for once. For fuck's sake, can't these idiot execs. look at a pathetic track record and realize hiring idiot A is going to screw everything up.

Dumbasses, all of them!

Update: Saw over at Halo.Bungie.Org here that this is not true at all. According to Joe Staten, Halo 2's writer:
Nope. Absolutely not true. Trust me, when we've got something big to
announce about the film (such as the director), we won't just be sneaking it
onto IMDB.

Thank God. It doesn't matter how good a script is, how much creator involvment and guidance there is, or how good the effects are, if Uwe's involved, he'll find a way to fuck it up. Hopefully this is the last we'll hear of his involvment with Halo.

Word now comes that this is untrue. Thing is, anyone can post to imdb. It's not to be taken as any kind of fact.

Still, here's what we could expect from an Uwe-esque rendition of Halo:
