The Halo television series coming to Showtime in 2019 has lost its director, Rupert Wyatt.
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 be replacing Wyatt as director. Wyatt is best known for his work on 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
“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,” said Wyatt. “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.”
