Aint It Cool News has a story
on who the director of Halo
might be. There's talk that Guillermo Del Toro will take the reigns of the movie. Toro has directed Hellboy, Blade 2, and Mimic. He got his start in horror movies much like Peter Jackson. I liked Toro's direction in Blade 2 and Hellboy so I think he can direct action films. Now, I know he wants to make Hellboy 2 cause he loves that character. Taking on Halo would definitely put a damper on those plans as he was slated to start filming in June.
