Is GI Joe writer Stuart Beattie's dream project about to come true, courtesy of a big-name benefactor? That's the rumor going around town right now. Are you ready for Steven Spielberg's Halo?

We told you last month about Beattie's desire to make a movie based on the popular Halo franchise and we showed you concept art from his pitch last August. But it seems that we weren't the only ones who noticed the passion in the GI Joe writer's words; Steven Spielberg is, according to IESB's sources, in active negotiations to sign onto the project — in the process, resurrecting it from the dead state it's collapsed into — because of Beattie's pitch.

Whether or not this means that the movie will ever get made, remains to be seen — Halo has already defeated Peter Jackson, after all.
