Visual effects maestro Tim Miller, of Scott Pilgrim vs The World fame, will act as the director. Then pair promise “an emotionally-charged look at the backstory of Halo’s iconic hero, the Master Chief”.

“The chance to tell a story that explores never-before-seen facets of Master Chief’s journey is an honor. Our goal is to deliver a blockbuster, Hollywood-quality trailer that raises the bar for the award-winning legacy of live-action Halo storytelling and gets fans stoked for the return of Master Chief.”
