JJ Abrams to Direct the Portal and Half Life Movies

Posted February 7, 2013 by Johnny2x in Entertainment


JJ Abrams could be the latest demi-god like George Lucas is for nerds. With him now slated to direct the next Star Wars movie he will just keep going from there. I would personally love to see what he would do with a shot at a Marvel superhero flick.

The interrobang.com says:

In the future, JJ Abrams will be chosen to direct everything. He’s been talking with computer gaming company Valve’s co-founder, Gabe Newell, about working together. They both seem pretty excited to get the ball rolling on a Half Life or Portal film. When asked for an update, Abrams said:

Plans for a Portal or Half-Life movie are “as real as anything in Hollywood ever gets… which is that we are really talking to Valve, we are going to be bringing on a writer, we have a lot of very interesting ideas.” – read more

The original story can be found at theverge.com:

J.J. Abrams and Gabe Newell have just revealed on stage at the DICE 2013 Summit that the two are discussing plans to collaborate on film and game in the future. Newell said that the two have been having conversations, and now “we reached the point that we decided to do more than talk.” J.J. Abrams then gave us a taste of what the two have been thinking about. Presumably speaking for his production company, Bad Robot, Abrams said on stage that “there’s an idea for a game that we’d really like to work with Valve on,” and Newell replied, “we’re super excited about that and we also want to talk about making movies, either a Portal movie or a Half-Life movie.” – read more
