Halo will get a live TV series, but it could take a lot longer before anything actually airs.
With production set to begin in early 2019, Showtime and Amblin Entertainment are once again searching for a director. Rupert Wyatt has exited the project, Showtime announced. The decision was made after Wyatt ran into a schedule conflict. He was signed on to direct the 10-episode first season.
The TV series hasn't lost its showrunner, though. Kyle Killen remains at the helm.
Here's part of the statement from Wyatt himself:
"My time on Halo has been a creatively rich and rewarding experience with a phenomenal team of people. I now join the legion of fans out there, excited to see the finished series and wishing everyone involved the very best."
Microsoft announced the made-for-TV adaption in 2013, but the project sat in development hell for several years. It wasn't completely forgotten; however, Microsoft and Showtime stopped talking about it in any detail. Showtime gave it a season-long order earlier this year.
Assuming Halo arrives on Showtime in late 2019 or sometime in 2020, the franchise would get a big boost from the next installment for gamers. Halo Infinite was unveiled at E3 2018. The game, which will be released exclusively for the Xbox One, will explore Master Chief's personal story.
