Halo on Hold Again

First Universal and Fox back out of the production amid rumors of cost overrages. Then Bungi says they've got a few tricks up their sleeve and that they are continuing with production. Then Microsoft says they would go it alone and production is full steam ahead.

Now...not so much.

According to the official press release from Wingnut films (via theonering.net):
As was previously confirmed, we deeply regret that both Universal and Fox did not choose to move forward with financing the Halo film under the original terms of the agreement. At this time Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, along with their partner, Microsoft, have mutually agreed to postpone making a feature film based on the Halo video game universe until we can fulfill the promise we made to millions of Halo fans throughout the world that we would settle for no less than bringing a first class film to the big screen.
So now its anybody's guess when the film will be finished.
