I've searched for a long time, and I have not found so much as a rumor of a plugin that creates genuine halftones. The most popular option is Phantasm CS, the halftone tool of which uses circles or other shapes of varying size to approximate a halftone look. Real halftone dots become square at 50% and from there the negative space takes on the circular form. With Phantasm CS and most halftone effects and plugins, the positive dots simply start to overlap, creating spiky diamond shapes between them rather than circles.

That said, although it is overpriced if all you want is the halftone tool, Phantasm CS is easy to use and technically works.
