Film and TV production tracking database Production Weekly posted today on its site and to Twitter that an untitled, feature-length, live-action Halo flick is in the works, according to a report today from VG 24/7.

Production Weekly posted a link on its Twitter account to a blog that listed the untitled Halo film as one of a bevy of movies heading into production, which piqued the interested IGN executive editor Jim Vejvoda.

Vejvoda tweeted back the question, “Untitled Halo project?” in which Production Weekly responded with, “The Halo project is a live-action feature-length digital produced by Ridley Scott …”

Later in the conversation Production Weekly revealed that though there’s “very limited info” as of today writer Paul Scheuring (Zero Hour, Prison Break) is also tied to the project. You can read the exchange via the VG 24/7 report.

Scott is best known for directing sci-fi juggernauts Alien and Blade Runner.

The news –– not yet confirmed by Microsoft –– comes just a week after Microsoft Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer said developing the Xbox IP into a television series produced by Steven Spielberg made sense strategically and is not just “filler.”
