In a recent interview with IGN, Hollywood Director J.J. Abrams confirmed that movies based off Portal and Half Life are still in development. Abrams said..
“We have a meeting coming up next week with Valve, we’re very active, I’m hoping that there will be a Portal announcement fairly soon.”
When asked if the movies will be faithful to the original source material, Abrams replied..
“We are having some really interesting discussions with writers, many of whom…once you said you’re doing a movie or show about a specific thing that is a known quantity you start to find people who are rabid about these things. As someone who loves playing Half Life and Portal, what’s the movie of this, it’s incredible when you talk to someone who just ‘gets’ it, it’s like, oh my god, it’s really the seed for this incredible tree you’re growing.”
