From a guy that thoroughly enjoyed both instalments of Portal, I'm pumped for this. No word on Half Life 3, though.
Naomi Kyle, from IGN, spoke with Abrams on both movie adaptations of Half Life & Portal. They were both confirmed to be 'still very much in development' by Abrams.
"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", said Abrams.
Abrams had kept his cards close to his chest in regards to the storyline that already exists in the game.
"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."
