While Bill Gate's anticipation of Halo 3 for next spring was a touch premature, gamers can celebrate the announcement of an executive producer for the forthcoming Halo feature film. There's a Lord of the Ring pun in here somewhere but it is not coming to me (hat tip to Porchboy).

As well as a raft of product announcements, Microsoft used tonight's X05 press conference to reveal that it has arranged for Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson and his partner Fran Walsh to work as executive producers on the Halo film.

As well as contributing to its production, Jackson will also lend the use of his Weta film studio to work on the special effects. Like Jackson, Weta has previously worked on the Lord of the Rings trilogy and this Christmas's King Kong.
