'Halo' Cast Assembles As Showtime Series Nears Production Start

'Halo' Cast Assembles As Showtime Series Nears Production Start

There's no character named Makee in Halo lore, but there is a Sangheili (we call them Elites) whose voice can be heard in Halo 5: Guardians - she's the only female Sangheili to ever feature in a Halo game.

Showtime has announced the Halo filming is beginning! Its impact on the video game industry is hard to overstate; Halo provided the fledgling Xbox with its first "killer app", and its various features went on to heavily influence the first-person shooter as a genre. Bokeem Woodbine (Overlord) has signed on to star as Soren-066, described as "a morally complex privateer at the fringes of human civilization whose fate will bring him into conflict with his former military masters and his old friend, the Master Chief", and Shabana Azmi (Fire) will play Admiral Margaret Parangosky, the head of the Office of Naval Intelligence.

Gray will play Dr. Miranda Keyes, a brilliant UNSC Commander who is dedicated to understanding the technology, language and culture of the Covenant, but she'll have to learn to navigate the politics of the UNSC to get what she wants.

Now it is getting a TV series, reflecting Halo's extensive staying power as a multi-billion dollar franchise.

No release date for the live-action Showtime Halo series has been released, though it is expected to have a 10-episode first season.

Labour pledge 'irreversible shift in power in favour of working people'
Mr McDonnell told an audience in Liverpool: 'Our aim as a Labour government is to achieve what past Labour governments have aspired to.

Olive Gray (Half Moon Investigations) and Charlie Murphy (Peaky Blinders) are set as series regulars opposite Pablo Schreiber in Halo, 's anticipated series based on the Xbox video game franchise.

Murphy will play Makee, an orphaned human who was raised by the Covenant and shares their contempt for humanity.

Kyle Killen (Awake) and Steven Kane (The Last Ship) serve as co-showrunners and executive producers.

It's going to be a unusual ride. There's a lot for a TV show to work within the Halo universe, and the show already seems to be going out of its way to make sure it's a reasonably faithful adaptation. It's hard to imagine a set of circumstances under which any member of the Covenant would've let a human live, let alone raised her as one of their own.
