Two for the money...

No, I'm not talking about that gawd-awful looking new Al Pachino movie (which will probably make $30 million when it opens), I'm talking about Fran Walsh and Peter Jackson both signing up for Halo!

Of course, they're just executive producers.

Peter Jackson, as pointed out by the Hollywood Reporter, has not been involved with a film he is not directing, so this is interesting news. Maybe they're still working out the details to get him to direct? Maybe he's got someone in mind to direct the film that he wants to work with? I don't have that answer for you.

Regardless, this is excellent news for both Halo fans and fans of video game movies.

In bad videogame movie news, Paul Anderson is attached to the Dead or Alive movie as a producer. After Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil, I would have been happy with that news; after Aliens vs Predator and Resident Evil 2, not happy at all.
