TheWrap is reporting that "The Good Wife" and "The Following" actor Mike Colter has signed on for the lead role in the Ridley Scott-produced Halo digital feature. Colter will play the role of Marlowe, who the outlet has learned is described as "a rising star in a futuristic army who is troubled by aspects of the military industrial complex he inhabits. Approaching combat situations with caution and logic, he inspires loyalty in his fellow Spartans."
TV director Sergio Mimica-Gezzan is attached to helm with "Prison Break" creator Paul Scheuring providing the script. Ridley Scott and David Zucker are executive producing the project, which is said to be live-action and likely similar in scope to Machinima's recent Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn webseries. It's also targeting a release before the end of 2014 and will be arriving in addition to the live-action series that Steven Spielberg is producing for Xbox One.
