Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot production company aim to team with game developer Valve on movie adaptations of the popular Half-Life and Portal vidgames. Abrams and Valve head Gabe Newell dropped the surprise announcement onstage while delivering a shared keynote speech opening the DICE Summit in Las Vegas today, multiple outlets are reporting. “We’re going to figure out if we can make a Portal movie or Half-Life movie together,” said Newell, although development is very early and further details have yet to be announced. The tight-lipped Abrams also revealed plans to team with Valve separately on a new video game. Abrams debuts his Star Trek sequel on May 15, 2013 and will then tackle Star Wars: Episode VII for a 2015 release.
