Uwe Boll not doing Halo movie

World breathes sigh of relief.

Game and movie fans alike can breathe a sigh of relief at the news that notorious director Uwe Boll isn't helming the new Halo film after all.

Rumours of Boll's involvement began after he was billed as the Halo director on the movie's IMDB entry.

Boll was responsible for the film adaptations of Alone in the Dark and House of the Dead - and even admitted the latter was rubbish in a recent interview. He's also recently completed a big screen version of BloodRayne and is currently hard at work on the Dungeon Siege and Postal movies.

But have no fear - the IMDB entry is officially wrong. Universal Studios and 20th Century Fox have yet to even produce a shortlist of potential Halo directors, and we'd bet our special edition DVD of German Fried Movie that Boll won't be on it.
