Microsoft and Xbox Entertainment have released a special “First Look” featurette for the upcoming Halo: Nightfall that not only goes behind the scenes of the digital feature, but also shows off more footage from the film as well as a very brief look at Halo 5: Guardians. Check it out in the player below!
Mike Colter stars in the series as Jameson Locke, a surgically-enhanced super soldier who is a rising star in a futuristic Spartan army and troubled by the military industrial complex he inhabits. The film takes place between the events of Halo 4 and the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians, in which Locke will play an integral role.
TV director Sergio Mimica-Gezzan is at the helm of the project with “Prison Break” creator Paul Scheuring providing the script. Ridley Scott and David Zucker are executive producing the project, which is said to be similar in scope to Machinima’s recent Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn webseries. The film will be arriving in addition to the live-action series that Steven Spielberg is producing for Xbox One.
Halo: Nightfall is included as part of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection and will be accessible digitally on Xbox Live beginning on November 11, 2014.
