They've found a new director: Otto Bathurst, the filmmaker behind the recent Robin Hood reboot.

 

Production is still scheduled to begin this year. So it could still happen, and there's still time for it to fall apart, again.

I haven't watched Peaky Blinders, but his episode of Black Mirror was one of the better ones imo.
Overall he doesn't have a lot behind him though.

@Greatoneshere we need some reassurance right now! 🙏

 

Robin Hood was garbage, but was a studio-mandated movie that had to get made. Otto Bathurst's TV work is almost uniformly excellent, so this could be good, but without knowing Otto's personal Halo fandom, or his interest in researching the property, I can't actually give reassurance. He's good within the TV realm, so that's a good sign at least.

 

I'd say the fact they got Kyle Killen (great showrunner of the short lived series Awake, also wrote the interesting though not great films The Beaver and Scenic Route) to showrun the show is a much bigger "get" and helps make me think Halo could actually be good between him and Otto Bathurst.

Show moving to CBS All Access instead of Showtime is not a good sign.

 

Might be a brilliant move on their part to get subscribers. Beside Viacom owns both CBS, Paramount and Showtime. Might be like Disney+ having everything under one banner.

That's exactly the calculation here... also shows on Paramount Plus will definitely have bigger budgets than anything on Showtime.
