Portal and Half-Life Films Are Still Happening Says J.J. Abrams
About three years ago .J. Abrams and Valve announced that they were developing a feature films based on Half-Life and Portal. Still there was no word about these movies after that announcement.
Well, it happens to be that those movies are still in development, or so Abrams told IGN in an interview.
Not yet, but they’re in development. And we’ve got writers, and we’re working on both those stories. But nothing that would be an exciting update.
I had long assumed that both these films were dead but now I am excited again. It is speculated that 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg is working on Portal. Afterall he directed that amazing Portal fan film, titled Portal: No Escape.
Interestingly both the games, even if not tied to each other are based in same universe. This makes the whole deal more exciting.
