Xbox Entertainment has released four photos from their digital series Halo: Nightfall. They features actor Mike Colter, who plays the lead character Agent Locke. This character will also play a major role in the upcoming video game Halo 5: Guardians.
According to Variety, Colter plays "an agent with the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) whose team is sent to investigate terrorist activity on a distant colony world and are eventually drawn to an ancient, hellish artifact during their search."
The series is being directed by Sergio Mimica-Gezzan (Falling Skies, Battlestar Gallactica) from a script by Paul Scheuring (Prison Break). Colter had this to say in statement:
“The script was incredibly gripping. It introduces an intriguing and mysterious world that I wanted to know more about… My favorite experience thus far would be shooting a scene in Belfast where I’m chasing an enemy who poses a serious threat to the people Agent Locke has sworn to protect through the city. The scene is an action-packed sequence that involves some cool special effects and a lot of coordination with the stunt team to fulfill the director’s vision. I can’t wait to see how it turns out.”
Ridley Scott and David Zucker are executive producing the project, and it will be released before the end of 2014.
