While promoting his upcoming action film Rogue, director M.J. Bassett was asked by The Hollywood Reporter about finishing up his work on Showtime’s Halo series. Bassett revealing that a commitment to another movie has become a conflict with a return to the show as filming will be resuming soon.
BASSETT: “I got wrapped about a few days before I was due to start shooting, and I can’t go back to it because I have another project I was penciled in for. It’s my next movie, in fact. I managed to keep the date for the movie, but Halo is also going to get up and running on that date. So I had a conflict and had to step away, which is a terrible shame because Halo is going to be a really fun show. I was really looking forward to it. We built the sets, planned everything and had scripts that were working. It’s going to be an enormous, enormous show. Pablo Schreiber is going to be a great Master Chief. The whole cast was good, but unfortunately, I can’t go back to it.”
A new Instagram post today from Master Chief actor Pablo Schreiber would suggest that they’re still shooting as production was taking place in Budapest. I recently got intel that Showtime has already started the lengthy post-production process on the sci-fi project.
An air date for Halo has yet to be announced by Showtime.
