Hey guys, just a question for you: Why did you use two of the darkest haired spartans to take off their helms? I love kelly to death, but wouldnt the contrast from Linda's red hair been better?

Less fanboyish people who havent read Fall of Reach will prolly now think that all spartans are Jet black hair monstrosities with silver eyes.

Also, Any word on a possible sequel? I'd love to see Fall of Reach (book) adapted into live action.

Her tag on her armor is 087 in the movie, If you read the Novels 087 is Kelly (104 the other one in the movie is Fred).

Sorry about it being in the wrong place, as you can see by my post info i'm new here, so if an admin wants to point me in the right direction go for it.

It's already great that they've showed two of the main Spartans of the Universe. I'm sure, if they'll make a sequel, they'll show more of them.

yeah i mean I had a little fanboy scream when it showed spartans without their helms, but I thought it woulda been a better contrast to show Linda with her red hair next to fred's pitch black.

But maybe since Linda was already featured in a commercial they figured it was kelly's turn to shine.

Guys the Spartans you see in the Movie are Kelly and Fred, their names are even stated throughout the movie.
they chose Kelly and Fred because it was around that time that the chief was working with them...

In the books though Fred is usually the other team lead (Red-one), and John has Kelly/Linda/Sam/James.

I was just wondering why they chose two spartans who look almost identical.

Reach would be too difficult. They'd have to make all the vehicles, Scorpion, Falcon, etc. FUD was just used to introduce Lasky and how he and Chief met.

In the commentary they said FUD was also used to show that live action halo could be done. I really hope this gets a big studio on board, if they can toss 34 milllion (or some other gigantic number) on a movie like Lord of the Rings, then they should be able to fork over a couple million for Halo.

Well, i don't know who do you mean with "they", but "Miramax" didn't believe in Jackson's dream, and only "New Line Cinema" funded it. Doesn't matter how many millions it cost, if no one trusts the success of the movie, no one will fund it.

They was aimed at Frank o'Connor and the rest of the 343 team that did commentary on the FUD DVD. Frank and the producers said that they hope to bring in a big studio after this proves that live action halo movies can be done.

And the reason why nobody wanted to fund Jackson is because his budget was freaking huge, even by LOTR standards. Also, Microsoft studios wanted full creative control (which Jackson and the other studios disagreed with), which imo is a good thing, i dont want Halo ending up like Prince of Persia.

Could you explain what full creative control means? Like, a studio can create a movie based on Halo but not on the games?

like, they wanted to be able to make all decisions based on the movie. Casting, Effects, Plot, stuff like that.

I didn't like what they did for the Spartan's eyes. It made them look cold and inhuman, when they are more aptly described as having an extreme feeling of vitality.

I Kinda liked the eyes cuz in the books they are described as having silver eyes. (plus it made Jenna Berman look hotter then she already is)

My only qualm was the hair color and choice of spartans, I love Kelly and who they picked for her, i just would have rather seen Linda with her red hair.

And also i did a little digging, when i said earlier i would have preferred Sam, It would appear he's already dead when this battle occurs.

I cannot be sure where I read it but I believe they may never make a real movie length feature of Halo, its not due to it being a success but more due to microsofta demands..

When District 9 was made instead of a Halo movie it was due to script changes, Microsofts demand for an upfront payment and royalties, the people making it were risking too much for too little return. Even as blockbuster of the year their profits would have been less than any major movie hit.

I cannot testify to the accuracy of the info above just some stuff i had read since the original talk of a Halo movie release.
