Portal/HalfLife 2-Films are coming from J.J.Abrams and Valve

Gabe Newell, fucking Fucker in charge at Valve, hat heute mit J.J.Abrams ein Panel über „Storytelling, Games and Movies“ gehalten und da haben sie am Ende grade eine kleine Bombe platzen lassen: Abrams will einen Portal- oder HalfLife-Film mit Valve drehen.

“What we are actually doing here, we are recapitulating a series of conversations going on. We reached the point that we decided to do more than talk.” Newell said. “We’re super excited about that and we also want to talk about making movies, either a Portal movie or a Half-Life movie.” Newell said. Abrams says there is a game that he’s like to make with Valve. And that’s that. JJ and Gabe leave us with the promise of a collaborative project, perhaps a movie, perhaps a video game.

Ich gehe davon aus, dass Abrams sich hier als Produzent betätigen wird (wie „schon“ bei Star Trek 3), anders wäre das bei seiner derzeitigen To-Do-Liste wohl kaum zu stemmen.
