Post Worlds Collide: Valve And JJ Abrams Working On Movie



I'm off in the strange, far-away land of Las Vegas right now, and I just got done watching Gabe Newell and JJ 'Warring Trek of the Stars' Abrams chat each other up on stage. I'll have more from the talk for you soon, but here's the big take-away: Valve and Abrams are officially collaborating. 'What we're actually doing here,' Newell said at the talk's conclusion, 'is recapitulating a series of conversations that have been going on [between Abrams and I]. This is what happens when game and movie people get together. And we sort of reached the point where we decided that we needed to do more than talk. So we're gonna try and figure out if we can make a Portal movie or a Half-Life movie together.' Meanwhile, Abrams added: 'And we have a game idea we'd like to work with Valve on.' Finally, Gabe wrapped it up: 'It's time for our industries to stop talking about potential and really execute on it.'
