District 9 and the connection to the Halo movie

Peter Jackson saw the short films Directed by Neill Blomkamp and decided that he should Direct Halo. Microsoft did not want a first time director who never directed a feature film to direct Halo. I would like to thank Peter Jackson for believing in an up and coming director enough to give him a chance.

Here is the original short film that inspired District 9: Alive in Johannesburg

Another amazing short by Neil Blomkamp: Tetra
