Have you been keeping up with the upcoming Halo adaptation? Well, if you have not, below are links that should provide a brief yet comprehensive history of the rollercoaster it has been to get the popular Xbox game to the bigscreen:

Fox Brings Halo Back in the Game

And why would I request you review your Halo history? Well, it turns out that Fox is still struggling to create a popular franchise -- they blew it on quite a few easy opportunities -- and Halo is as big a guarantee as any. Though the studio originally jumped onboard the franchise with Universal in tow, Fox has announced that they have signed a deal as the primary licensor for Halo.

Since Microsoft does have a close(r) relationship with Fox, it comes as no surprise that it would be this studio to jump back onto the project. The two companies have worked together on Perfect Dark Zero and Kameo: Elements of Power.

"Those two games established our relationship with them as a licensing agency, and those conversations continued during the same time that a 'Halo' film was in development here," said Elie Dekel, exec VP of domestic licensing for Fox.

So what does this mean for a possible Halo movie? Nothing yet, unfortunately. Fox is going to concentrate on taking advantage of the release of Halo 3 this September for Xbox 360. The studio will sell licensed products until this gaming franchise is dead in the ground.

With money to be made in gaming, there is likely no rush to jump to film.

Stay tuned for updates.
