A director has finally been named for the upcoming production of the movie based on Microsoft's hit video game series "Halo," and it's....Neill Blomkamp? Who the halo is Neill Blomkamp?
Off to IMDb.com for more information. According to that site, the 26(!)-year-old director was born in South Africa and has mainly been a 3D animator for television shows such as "Smallville" and "Dark Angel." He has reportedly directed TV commercials as well.
According to IGN, Blomkamp was handpicked for the movie by executive producer Peter Jackson. The film is set to release in the summer 2008. Maybe we'll see "Halo 4" out by then.
You can see "Alive in Joburg," Blomkamp's short sci-fi film about aliens rioting against apartheid in South Africa, here.
