Here's a thought - what if we get Harrison Ford to play the Chief in the Halo movie (and influences from Asimov's Foundation series to boot?)

So far, the great ark has been the subject of much debate. Is it that structure that human archaeologists excavated on planet Corral, as mentioned in Conversations with the Universe? Or is it on earth, as bungie's earth-ark concept art for its preliminary idea of Halo 2 implies?
There's that unlockable multiplayer level on Halo 2 that can be unlocked after playing on Heroic, and it's name is Foundation. In the great Isaac Asimov's Foundation series of sci-fi novels, a scientist named Hari Seldon tries to save the Galactic Empire by setting up two sanctuaries or foundations at opposite ends of the galaxy. Likewise, there might be two arks-one on earth for us humans and one for the covenant on corral. And like the enigmatic Second Foundation, the existence of one of the arks might even be unknown, to such an extent that it would be thought that only one Ark/Foundation existed.
This is just my idea on how to explain the ark's location, assuming that the earth-ark concept hasn't been deleted. (Finn: Sure hasn't!: 1 and a 2 and a...)
P.S. How many arks are there in the bible-Noah's Ark and the Ark of the Covenant, right?
