      The Halo TV series gets a new director, and more details on Master Chief's big budget Showtime debut.
       

       

      The Halo TV series is moving forward. Years after plans for a live action Halo film fell apart, Master Chief is headed to Hollywood with a TV series on Showtime. Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television is producing, and after a period of silence we've gotten some fresh news about the show, including a new director.

      There's not much we know for sure about the content of the show, but there are going to be Spartans, with Master Chief taking his proper place as a central character. And if we had to bet on it: There's probably going to be a Halo ring, too.

      The nine episode TV series is early in production. The most recent casting news gave us some clues as to the characters we'll be seeing when the show arrives (likely in 2020). 

      Heres everything we know about Showtimes Halo TV series so far.


      When does the Halo TV series air?
      There's no air date yet. According to the latest news from The Hollywood Reporter, the Halo TV series begins filming in June 2019. That means a long period of casting and pre-production, and makes a 2020 debut likely. That idea is backed up by comments from President of Programming Gary Levine during a Television Critics Association press tour.

      Will the launch of the TV series coincide with the release of Halo Infinite? With a 2020 date, it's plausible!


      Is Master Chief in the Halo TV series?
      Yes. Yes he is. He's been confirmed at every opportunity, and as of mid-April, we know who's playing him. Actor Pablo Schreiber has been cast as Master Chief. You may remember a younger Schreiber from his role as dockworker Nick Sobotka in season 2 of The Wire, or from some more recent shows and movies: American Gods, Skyscraper, Orange Is the New Black. According to IMDB, he's nearly 6'5" tall.

      Also confirmed via a casting notice: Dr. Halsey, the scientist in charge of the Spartan program and the closest thing Master Chief has to a mom. Except the Spartans were taken from their real parents as young children and turned into supersoldiers. So it's a complicated relationship. Dr. Halsey's personality also serves as the basis of the AI Cortana.

      Who else will we see in the series? The casting notice calls for "Jenny, listed as an Asian woman between the ages of 18-20." She's likely an original character created for the series.


      How many episodes will there be? 
      Showtimes initial order consisted of 10 hour-long episodes, a common season length for big-budget prestige TV series these days. That order has since been dropped to nine episodes. Showtime hopes Halos influential lineage will deliver the networks "most ambitious series ever." No pressure.

      [Halo] is futuristic space-based science fiction," elaborated President David Nevins at the TCA conference. "Its not fantasy. I think there's been one iconic franchise in my opinion in the history of television in that category and that's Star Trek. It was a long time to get the script where we felt we had something really interesting and felt like it belonged on Showtime in terms of its character depth. Its going to be a big show.


      Whos part of the production?
      Apart from Showtimes obvious involvement, Steven Spielbergs Amblin Entertainment is one of the bigger studios handling production duties. Its yet unknown if the acclaimed filmmaker will personally have a role, but it appears Showtimes project is a continuation of a concept Spielberg was set to executive produce back in 2013. Considering Spielbergs background and enduring interest in science-fictionbeing no stranger to the nostalgic pull of gamestheres a fair chance of spotting his name in the credits roll.

      Developer 343 Industries (and Microsoft, by extension) is also involved in some direct capacity. Hopefully that's good news, and not the first step down a path towards another Assassin's Creed or Tomb Raider. 343s responsibilities could simply entail making sure the series feels authentically Halo, leaving the TV pros to do their work.

       


      Who is writing and directing the Halo TV show?
      Kyle Killen has been tapped as writer and showrunner. Killens most recent work, the largely panned Mind Games, failed to anchor an audience past its first and only season. His earlier and more fruitful endeavors included Foxs Lone Star and NBCs Awake, both sharing the same fate and lasting only one season. While Killen is relatively unblooded in the deep sci-fi genre, his recurring interest in theming a protagonist around facing plural realities could serve as an intriguing foundation for exploring the supernatural aspects of Halos far-reaching universe.

      On a TCA tour, Levine explained Killens selection over more experienced writers was a deliberate one, saying, We made a conscious decision to hire a writer not known for sci-fi and not known for big battle movies or anything. Because that's already baked into the Halo franchise and we will service that. But we also want to ensure that we get underneath the formidable armor of the Spartans."

      Originally director Rupert Wyatt was going to be part of the project, but he exited the show in December. Now the series has a new lead director and executive producer in Otto Bathurst, who most recently directed the 2018 Robin Hood, and the first episode of Black Mirror (you know,the one with the pig).

       


      Any confirmed actors?
      None yet, but well update this section as names appear on the shows roster. With casting in swing, it's likely we'll have some names well before the series begins shooting.


      What kind of story will the Halo TV series tell?

      Story details are locked down, but Levine affirmed it as a new story incredibly respectful of the canon utilizing the franchises framework of the war with the Covenant and the eponymous Halo space stations. Thats further reinforced by this official post by 343 head of transmedia Kiki Wolfkill, who explained that the series will try to strike a balance between fan expectations and presenting something new.

      As we think about what it means to bring videogame franchises to movie or TVthe biggest challenge can often be finding the right balance between moments fans have already experienced and moments that have yet to be experienced through a different medium, perspective, or creative lens, Wolfkill wrote. We are excited to navigate these creative waters to bring you something that is both respectful of what you already know and love, but also new and surprising and enthralling.

      When in the Halo timeline might it take place? The war with the Covenant boasts several points of interest for a TV series. A possible strong angle could cover Chiefs origins, his conscription into the Spartan program (which would include an appearance of the titular planet from 2010s Halo: Reach), and his eventual first contact with the Covenant, all of which would comprise a useful backdrop for plenty on-camera opportunities to show off John-117s face in various stages of grizzled determination. An adaptation of Halo novel Fall of Reach would make sensebut if you're trying to bring in the Halo rings and tell a new story, that seems unlikely.

       

      En resumidas cuentas. Serie de gran presupuesto, por Showtime, producida por Steven Spielvberg (y tal vez con algún episodio dirigido por él). Diez episodios en la primera temporada, y se estrenaría el 2020.

       

      Dicen que no hay actor para el jefe maestro pero por otros lados dicen que eso no es cierto, que el elegido es Sergio Ramos.

      Pues no sé que pensais. Es que la acabo de oír como posible sucesora de GoT y me ha hecho gracia. No sabía que estaba la cosa tan avanzada. De hecho, creía que hasta la habían cancelado.

       

      Un saludo.

      Hola, aprovechando el comienzo del nuevo año, quería preguntar unas dudas sobre la Halo: The Master Chief Collection y sobre la saga Halo en general.
       
      1) ¿Es cierto que a excepción de Halo 2 (que se ejecuta a 900p), el resto de videojuegos de esta recopilación se ejecutan a 1080p y 60 frames constantes y estables?
       
      2) ¿Es cierto que se habilita la opción de jugar al primer y segundo Halo con el aspecto que tenía originalmente en la primera Xbox (más allá de ciertas mejoras para poder ejecutarse en resolución Full HD).
       
      3) ¿Es cierto que Halo 2 carece de doblaje al castellano en esta recopilación?
       
      4) La versión física de esta recopilación, ¿es completamente funcional y operativa por si misma, sin dependencia alguna de internet (para actualizaciones de contenido)? O dicho de otra manera, ¿si se inserta el disco físico de esta edición en una Xbox One, se podría acceder a todo el contenido para un jugador sin problema alguno? Para que nos entendamos, que no fuera un caso como el de Spyro, donde sólo están contenidos en los discos parte de los niveles de Spyro 2 y 3, debiendo descargar el resto de internet.
       
      5) A nivel de narrativa, ¿la saga destaca por una trama compleja y profunda o es una mera excusa para matar alienígenas sin piedad?
       
      6) Para aquellos que no sean muy duchos o amigos de los shooters en consola (ya que prefieren la precisión de un ratón), ¿está saga está bien ideada para fomentar un control y precisión asequibles incluso para aquellos que no suelan jugar a este genero con un mando?
       
      7) Finalmente, ¿pensáis que una recopilación como esta sería posible en la siguiente generación, incorporando los Halo 5 y 6, además de alguna mejora extra en materia gráfica o jugable?
       
      ¡Saludos y gracias anticipadas!

      Es un secreto a voces que cuando se ponen a las ventas consolas en una nueva generación, las compañías ya están pensando en la siguiente máquina que sustituirá a la que han puesto en el mercado, investigando como abordar la misma, ideando el concepto y desarrollándolo progresivamente.

       

      Ahora bien, la pregunta es, ¿pensáis que sucede lo mismo con ciertas IPS, sagas icónicas de los videojuegos? ¿Pensáis que nada más ponerse a la venta el último Zelda, Nintendo ya está planificando y preparando el siguiente? ¿O en el caso de sagas como Mario, Halo y Uncharted, por ejemplo? ¿O pensáis que después de ponerse a la venta el último título de la saga, las compañías dejan "reposar" unos meses la misma, hasta que se les ocurran ideas sobre como planificar el siguiente título?

       

      Básicamente la cuestión es si pensáis que en ciertas sagas e IPs famosas e icónicas, a medida que se finaliza un título, ya se está ideando y desarrollando de inmediato el siguiente. Sabemos que hay casos como Assassin's Creed donde ha sucedido esto, pero, ¿pensáis que es una práctica habitual en grandes IPs?

       

      ¡Saludos!
