Halo: Rupert Wyatt Exits As Director And Executive Producer Of TV Series


Variety is reporting that Rupert Wyatt has departed as director and executive producer from Showtime’s television series adaptation of the video game franchise Halo.

 

Halo is set in the 26th Century, where humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant are at war, told primarily through the eyes of Master Chief. Halo will weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future.

 

Rupert Wyatt released a statement saying:

It’s with great disappointment that changes to the production schedule of ‘Halo’ prevent me from continuing in my role as a director on the series. My time on ‘Halo’ has been a creatively rich and rewarding experience with a phenomenal team of people. I now join the legion of fans out there, excited to see the finished series and wishing everyone involved the very best.

 

Gary Levine, Showtime’s president of programming, released a statement saying:

Showtime’s adaptation of ‘Halo’ is evolving beautifully with rich characters, compelling stories and powerful scripts. Obviously, the production demands of this series are enormous, and we have had to add time to the schedule in order to do it right. Sadly, this delay has created a conflict for Rupert, whom we warmly thank for all he has brought to the project.

 

Kyle Killen will serve as Showrunner/Executive producer on the series. Also serving as executive producers are Scott Pennington, Amblin TV’s Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank.
