J.J. Abrams and Valve are working together to bring Portal and Half-Life to the big screen. Historically, movie adaptations of video games are typically garbage; the difference here is that Uwe Boll isn’t directing, J.J. Abrams is. That makes ALL the difference!
I have extremely high hopes and expectations that Abrams can change the damage Uwe Boll has done to the scene.
Further evidence can be found on J.J. Abrams’ IMDB Producer profile, it’s official.
This is old but important news that every gamer should be aware of, here is gamespot’s original scoop:
J.J. Abrams and Valve working on game project together
…Valve co-founder Gabe Newell and Star Trek director J.J. Abrams announced they are working on an unannounced game project together.
Newell also announced that he is investigating the possibility of working with Abrams on a Portal or Half-Life film.
