Halo Co-Creator Talks About Canceled Game With Lord Of The Rings Director Peter Jackson

  • Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto has shared some new insight into Halo: Chronicles, which was apparently the name for the Halo game that Bungie was collaborating on with The Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson. Speaking to HiddenXperia, Lehto started off by clarifying that he did not personally get to visit Jackson at his home in New Zealand for the meeting.

    Instead, Joseph Staten and Harold Ryan of Bungie took the trip and spoke with Jackson about a potential collaboration. From what Lehto shared, it sounds like the partnership didn't get very far off the ground. He said Bungie and Jackson's team were "trying to figure out what kind of collaboration we could cook up" with the acclaimed filmmaker.

    "Because we were just so excited about the idea of working with Peter Jackson. We had a great deal of respect for him and what he had done with The Lord of the Rings. We felt like it would have been a natural fit. It could have been something we would have been really impressed by. But sadly, that kind of just petered away, no pun intended. I wish we would have seen something come from that, really, I do," he said.Continue Reading at GameSpot
