New Zealand director Peter Jackson -- most famous for his Lord of the Rings trilogy -- and his wife have signed on as producers of the film adaptation of the computer game "Halo". Jackson, apparently, is an avid "Halo" fan.

The film's script will be written by Alex Garland and the cast and director are expected be announced over the next few weeks. "Halo" will be filmed in Wellington, New Zealand, where Jackson's production company is also based.
