Finally, this week we have seen the first signs of movement with the rumored Half-Life and/or Portal movie(s) with Star Wars and Star Trek director, JJ Abrams, at the helm. Speaking to IGN at the recent Westworld premiere, Abrams said, “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. 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.”
