Variety Magazine reports Universal and Fox have pulled out of Halo.

" It's game over for Universal's and Fox's participation in the feature adaptation of Microsoft's "Halo."Both of the studios that agreed to co-finance the screen adaptation of the popular Microsoft game have abruptly backed out of the picture. While rumors had the studios concerned over a budget that was rising above the original projected $135 million pricetag, the filmmakers said the double defection came after U and Fox played hardball and unsuccessfully tried to get the filmmakers and Microsoft to reduce their profit participation."

I hope it doesn't effect in any way the quality of the movie.
