Uwe Boll to direct HALO?

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0093051/

That link leads to IMDB's Uwe Boll filmography, where Halo proudly appears.

Oh yes, we want a quality production, it has to be done well or not at all... MS should have thought about those words before signing up THE BOLL to do their precious Halo movie.

The Halo fans will EMBRACE Boll as the greatest video game director of this generation and label the new movie as CLASSIC!!

Can't anyone update IMDB? Could be, and most likely is, fake.

Uwe Boll is the genius of video game movies. Without him, people might actually start believing that movies based on games are great idea.

The rest are all true, I hope Fear Effect will be fairly good so SCI Games can make a new Fear Effect game aswell.

Expecting ANY movie from Boll to be good is just plain stupid. He's had a half dozen strikes to his name of crap. The problem is he thinks he's AWESOME and its always the writers fault.

No...the guy who directed 28 days later and Millions is doing Halo.

Uwe Boll is doing Dougeon Seige.

Having Uwe Boll direct Halo is the only way to ensure that the movie sucks as much as the games.

With the stink that bungiee and Microsoft made over the movie, you'd think they have more foresight then this.

Maybe he'll blame microsoft if the movie sucks, just like he blamed Sega for House of the dead sucking.

But I can't help but think this isn't true. IMDB is REALLY REALLY bad when it comes to listing who's connected with a project before it begins. Remember what they did with Naruto?

Let's wait until production starts.
