On the other, though, maybe Halo will take a Judge Dredd approach - slapping a helmet on Schreiber and still showing some of his face.

Also arriving as part of the HALO cast is newcomer Yerin Ha (THE CHANGELING, WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN), who is set to play a new character to the Halo universe. Schreiber will play Master Chief on Showtime's Halo TV series, based on the wildly popular video games.

Master Chief is an iconic character, and has essentially become a mascot for the Xbox game console.

Halo the series will begin production early this year. More recently, he's known for his role as the Irish Mad Sweeney in American Gods. He now co-stars on Starz's American Gods. His other film credits include Thumper, the Sundance Film Festival Audience Award victor Happythankyoumoreplease, Vicky Christina Barcelona, The Lords of Dogtown, Nights in Rodanthe, The Manchurian Candidate, Breaking Upwards, and Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight. In 2017, she starred in a short film for the Australian Chamber Orchestra. This will be Ha's first major role. More on the Halo TV series cast below.

On the whole, Halo focuses on the 26th-century battle between humans and the race of aliens known as the Covenant. Showtime is promising "deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure, and a richly imagined vision of the future". Kyle Killen (Awake) and Steven Kane (The Last Ship) serve as co-showrunners and executive producers on the Halo TV series, which hails from Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television.

After scouring places like the Fathom Station, the Pillar of Autumn, and even the Holy City of High Charity, Showtime had found its director for the long-gestating HALO television series in British filmmaker Otto Bathurst.
