The Halo movie adaptation will have to wait until the director finishes Hellboy 2.

Even though the request to do a movie adaptation of Halo comes from producer Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings, King Kong) himself, director Guillermo del Toro says he wants to finish Hellboy 2 first.

"It's going really good," says del Toro, who's completed a script, according to Empire Online. "It's about the fairy world and the mythical creatures all rebelling against humanity and saying it's the end of mankind and it's the season for the sons of the Earth. And basically Hellboy has to try to repress or suppress that rebellion."

Ron Perlman and the rest of the original cast – including Selma Blair, Doug Jones, David Hyde-Pierce and Rupert Evans – are all coming back, while Hellboy creator Mike Mignola is also on board, according to del Toro. "He should be reading the screenplay right now," laughed Guillermo.

Before cameras roll though, the money has to come into line. "We're budgeting," said del Toro. "I'm very much looking forward to it. I wanna do it. It's still on the front burner, but it's all about budget."
