Steven Spielberg to produce live action Halo TV series

Halo fans – grab those tissues. You'll need them to stem the gushing tears of joy after hearing the latest news from Microsoft land

Halo fans will need to hire a few hundred beavers to dam the flow of their tears of joy, after hearing that a live action Halo TV series – produced by Steven Spielberg – is on the way.

All-important details like release dates, number of seasons and casting are missing at the moment, but one thing's for sure – there's never been a better time to be a Halo fan.

Halo has defeated many previous efforts to bring it to the screen – including, infamously, a version produced by Peter Jackson, directed by District 9's Neill Blomkamp and written by Dredd scribe Alex Garland. Still, that version did result in several costumes and props being made, which eventually found their way into Neill Blomkamp's Halo short film. Maybe they can take them out of mothballs for the new version.
