The 2 brothers would-be rivals and would face each other in a final match
Halo is the Microsoft franchise that has exploited the most with multimedia projects that have served to expand the history of its fantastic universe. Microsoft at some point even thought to make an adaptation of the game for the big screen, and Mexican director Guillermo del Toro would be involved in the project. These kinds of adaptations usually have some changes from the original story and the Halo movie would not be the exception, since it would introduce the brother of the Master Chief.
Few details are known of the Halo movie project that would come to life thanks to the renowned Mexican creative Guillermo del Toro. One more curiosity about the film came to light recently, when the creator of the name of the series and environment artist, Paul Russel, spoke in an episode of IGN focused on Halo: Combat Evolved .
In the conversation, Paul Russel took a moment to talk about the Halo film whose script would be in charge of Guillermo del Toro and revealed that in the film the brother of the Master Chief would be introduced into the history of the franchise and would also be the antagonist of the film, as it would ally with the Flood, but that is not all, since the film would end in an epic way with a battle between brothers.
“The Master Chief had a twin brother, and the twin brother would ally with the Flood, and then the end of the movie was going to be brother against brother,” revealed Russel.
UNFORTUNATELY, THE HALO PROJECT DID NOT MATERIALIZE
Later, the developer delved into how this idea came about. According to Russel, Del Toro revealed this part of the story at the home of apparently Joey (allegedly Joseph Staten, writer and director of Halo: Combat Evolved cinematic sequences ).
“That’s what Joey said. Del Toro was proposing this to Joe at his house. He hit him on the arm saying: ‘And they are brothers! And they’re going to fight in the end! ‘”Russel said.
This may be an interesting idea for some, and we were close to seeing it come true, because even Del Toro once mentioned that he adapted the game in a script he did together with the writer DB Weiss, writer of Game of Thrones, in 2006, but unfortunately the project did not materialize, as the Mexican creative worked on Hellboy II.
