The Game He Could Have Made: Halo ODST
He’s already shown an interest in the medium and ODST would provide him with a familiar setting, as just like District 9, the shooter also takes place in Africa.
Blomkamp’s directorial debut showed the man’s adept at directing big-ass explosions and giving the audience alien weapons that can barbecue your spleen in thirty seconds.
If he can handle that, we’re sure he could have come up with more memorable set-pieces and action than the downbeat, dreary latest entry in the Halo series.
Games He Should Make: First person shooters. Preferably ones where aliens and humans shoot up each others colons with high tech weaponry
Blomkamp’s ace District 9 was originally set to be a Peter Jackson-produced Halo film, meaning he’s the only man in Hollywood qualified to work on a new Master Chief game.
His distinct handheld style would also give any shooter he worked on a hugely authentic first-person perspective.
Well, as authentic as you can get for a film that would essentially be about a guy in a helmet pumping glorified alien Ewoks full of magic pink needles.
