It's been a while since we heard any rumblings about a Halo movie, the prospect of which seemed pretty much dead in the water after Fox and Universal's disagreements had all but crumbled the concept -- despite at one point having Peter Jackson and Neil Blomkamp attached the project.
Well the wheels appear to be in motion once again, with Stephen Spielberg's Dreamworks Pictures now reportedly renewing efforts to obtain the rights and bring a Halo movie to fruition.

re-capping the story-so-far of Halo's attempts at the silver-screen and explain that Dreamworks appears to be setting its sights on adapting the Halo novels to film, trying to steer clear of Fox and Universal's legal minefield of the video-game adaptation rights.
It's not surprising that film studios are still strongly interested in the Halo franchise, as the latest addition to the series Halo: Reach has already become the year's biggest-selling game. The narratives of the books appear to mirror and retain continuity with the games so it would seem likely that a movie adaptation of those would produce the same result as it would from the games anyway.
