Portal and Half-Life On The Way to The Silver Screen, Says J.J. Abrams

on February 6, 2013 4:59 PM

As reported by Polygon, the Star Trek and recent Star Wars director J.J. Abrams has announced plans to develop movies based on Portal and Half-Life.

Things are in the early stages for now, but Gabe Newell has confirmed the news and said that–despite much apprehension in the past–they’ve come to an agreement on the narrative and how the movie should go.

Guess we won’t see a movie based on the Portal short, No Escape, anytime soon.

Abrams is certainly making a name for himself with his recent projects. Do you think he’s suitable for the job? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned to DualShockers.com for more news.
