District 9 Director Politics Up Master Chief
Peter - Bad Taste - Jackson's mate (and director of District 9) Neill Blomkamp has decided that if he can't direct Master Chief, then he'll at least start attaching all sorts of back-story to him.

He tells Rotten Toms, " I totally love the universe of Halo on every level. Not only is it this epic space saga but Master Chief is such an awesome character. This guy - whether he knows it or not - is a victim of this military-industrial complex. It's a totally compelling world to be involved in. So on a creative level I'd love to go back there, but I probably would say no."

Oh, for goodness' sake make your mind up Neill.

Whenever I see the word "victim" appear in the context of some sort of nameless, faceless, uber-corporation I have to laugh and roll my eyes at the cliche of it all.

In other words, pray to God that he doesn't ever get the chance to make his movie.

After watching District 9 and the shorts that Neil made I would love him to direct a Halo movie
