J.J. Abrams and Gabe Newell spoke together yesterday at the 2013 DICE Summit and spoke of their desire to make a video game together and perhaps a film based on Polygon are reporting.or ,
Here are the key quotes:
Abrams: "There's an idea we have for a game that we'd like to work with Valve on."
Newell: "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: "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."
After the on-stage discussion Abrams was quizzed by journalists about the likelihood of the projects seeing fruition. He responded: "It's as real as anything in Hollywood ever gets... we are really talking to Valve, we are going to be bringing on a writer, we have a lot of very interesting ideas."
A Portal or Half-Life film? An Abrams-led Valve game? Wow.
