Even though he is busy finishing up “Star Trek Into Darkness” and prepping for “Star Wars: Episode VII,” producer/director J.J. Abrams is already looking at other projects to take on.
Speaking at the D.I.C.E. Conference in Las Vegas, the filmmaker has revealed that his company Bad Robot plans to work closely with game company juggernaut Valve to adapt their iconic games “Half-Life” and “Portal” into features.
Abrams and Valve co-founder Gabe Newell made the announcement during a keynote conversation kicking off the convention.
The film joins a recent surge of video game properties that have been put into active film development including “Assassin’s Creed,” “Splinter Cell,” “Need for Speed,” “World of Warcraft,” “Deus Ex,” “Uncharted,” “Mortal Kombat,” “Hitman” and more.
