A new "Halo" project is in the works, with "Gladiator" director Ridley Scott signed up to serve as executive producer. The 'digital feature' will see Sergio Mimica-Gezzan take the directorial reins. Mimica-Gezzan has previously directed episodes of the geek-pleasing "Battlestar Galactica" TV show.

According to Microsoft, a “digital feature project” based on the Halo game series is in fact in the works from 343 Industries, Xbox Entertainment Studios, and Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions.

According to The Wrap, the involved companies are considering Prison Break series creator Paul Scheuring to write the digital feature.

Expected to follow the same format as Machinima's “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn,” the story is set in the 26th century and follows a surgically-enhanced super soldier who is not Master Chief, an individual familiar with the project told TheWrap.
