Showtime has delayed production of its big new Halo TV series, causing an executive producer to break away.
As the Halo TV show continues to evolve and grow, so does its schedule and resource cost, and conflicts inevitably arise. One such conflict has caused Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt to depart from the Halo show, where he was to executive produce and direct multiple episodes of the 10-part series.
"It's with great disappointment that changes to the production schedule of 'Halo' prevent me from continuing in my role as a director on the series," Wyatt told Variety. "My time on 'Halo' has been a creatively rich and rewarding experience with a phenomenal team of people. I now join the legion of fans out there, excited to see the finished series and wishing everyone involved the very best."
