Halo gets fragged....

From Guardian Unlimited comes this morbid announcement;
Hollywood's big screen version of Microsoft's hit videogame Halo hung in the balance last night after the two studios behind the project pulled out at the 11th hour.

Universal and Fox withdrew their commitments to the highly anticipated adaptation at the end of protracted compensation talks with the producers.

Sounds like there were a lot of factors that could have caused it. Still sux. I was hoping for one good game-to-movie conversion. Perhaps someone else will pick it up as the article hints at Microsoft continuing to go for it.

Unfortunately with Universal and Fox out, New Line and Dreamworks already passed, and Sony (for some weird reason *cough* PS3 *cough*) all not interested, the list is getting awfully short.
