Paramount Plus has unveiled a first look teaser for their highly anticipated and long in development Halo series based on the best selling video game. It’s a short tease and it doesn’t show much but we do get our first look at the iconic Master Chief who will be played by Pablo Schreiber who starred in Den of Thieves with Gerard Butler.
Starring along with Schreiber are Danny Sapani (Ear for Eye) and Olive Gray (Rose: A Love Story) as Jacob and Miranda Keyes, Bokeem Woodbine (Spenser Confidential) as Soren-066, Shabana Azmi (The Empire) as Admiral Margaret Parangosky, and Natascha McElhone (Designated Survivor) as Dr. Catherine Halsey. Bentley Kalu (Stairs), Natasha Culzac (Men in Black: International) and Kate Kennedy are also in the cast and they will be playing newer characters to the universe.
I’m a casual player of the video games but I’m all for a new sci-fi action series so this one looks like it’ll have a nice polished theatrical look to it. I’m eager to see how the special effects are as well as the action set pieces.
Halo will debut on Paramount Plus sometime in 2022!
