Showtime’s Halo TV Show Enters Production, New Cast Members Revealed
Live-action Halo movies and TV shows have historically struggled to even see the light of day. Still, there are some incredible creations that bring the franchise to life such as the Forward Unto Dawn web series that introduced Halo 4 character Thomas Lasky, while also providing glimpses into just what could be done with the franchise through different mediums. Showtime has revealed in the past that they’re getting ready to take a stab at the franchise themselves, and while the project had some struggles, it seems that soon fans will be seeing the fruits of their efforts.
There aren’t too many details concerning the Showtime Halo show, though recent casting choices do give a small indication as to what the team is going for. Danny Sapani is set to take on the role of Captain Jacob Keyes, a notable figure from Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo Reach. Playing Keyes’ daughter Miranda is Olive Grey, and the character will be attempting to learn and understand the Covenant culture. Lastly, actress Charlie Murphy will be taking on the role of Makee, an orphaned human who was taken in by the Covenant and shares their contempt for humanity. Alongside the recent casting choices a post to Twitter was made officially announcing that the cast and crew will soon begin production on the series.
