Apparently J.J. Abrams still isn’t satisfied with his workload…he was at the DICE Summit in Las Vegas today where he appeared on stage with Gabe Newell – the head of computer game maker Valve – the studio that produced the immensely popular Half-Life and Portal franchises.
And of course, they announced a partnership, under the guise of a conversation about the strengths and weaknesses of storytelling in movies and games.
J.J. Abrams said, “There’s an idea we have for a game that we’d like to work with Valve on.”
And perhaps the bigger news, “We’re going to figure out if we can make a Portal movie or Half-Life movie together,” according to Newell.
