The split is due to scheduling conflicts.
Wyatt, who was also serving as executive producer for the series, indicates that the split is amicable, and due to an extension of the show’s production schedule. It’s unclear at this time who will replace Wyatt as director. Wyatt is best known for his work on 201
1’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
“It’s with great disappointment that changes to the production schedule of Halo, preventing me from continuing in my role as director of the series,” said Wyatt . “My time on Halo has been a creative 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. “
” Showtime’s adaptation of Halo is evolving beautifully with rich characters, compelling stories and powerful scripts, “said Gary Levine , Showtime’s president or programing. “Obviously, the production demands of this series are enormous, and we have had to add time to the schedule in order to do it right. Sadly, this delay has created a conflict for Rupert, who we warmly thank for all he has brought to the project. “
Progress on the Halo television series has been moving forward steadily since it was announced. Showtime had officially ordered it for production. Reports indicate that it will start filming in Budapest, Hungary in early June. The show is primed to tell a new story, but respect the series’ canon.
