Valve's Portal and Half-Life Games Still Getting Movies, Says Gabe Newell
Back in 2013, it was announced that Valve franchises Half-Life and Portal were going to get movie adaptations. Four years later, nothing else has been reported on the development of those movies. Fans have since assumed that the projects were dead, but in a recent Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), Gabe Newell confirms that the two movies are still in the works, and it may only be a matter of time before any reveal is made.
Portal and Half-Life Movies
Newell recently put up an AMA where fans got to ask for updates on anything involving Valve and Steam. When asked about the Half-Life and Portal movie, Newell simply wrote, "Yep. They're coming." No further details were revealed, but at least fans are sure that the projects have not been cancelled.
The big question is, if the movies are on the way, then why haven't the fans gotten any updates on them? There have not been any reports on a script or a director. Game Fragger speculates that the possible reason that there hasn't been any steam on any of these projects is because the production is waiting out the video game movie genre to find the "right formula."
State of Video Game Movies Today
2016 saw the release of several video game movies like "Warcraft," "Angry Birds" and "Assassin's Creed." Sadly, none of these movies were critical successes and though "Angry Birds" was able to make a lot of money, the critical backlash prevents it from being on the same level as "Zootopia" or "Moana."
Hollywood has always been trying to turn popular video games into movies, with franchises like Street Fighter and Tomb Raider getting big-screen adaptations. So far, not one of these films has been able to become commercial and critical successes, but that has not stopped Hollywood from trying. As of now, multiple video game movies have been rolling on with production like "Splinter Cell," "Uncharted" and the rebooted "Tomb Raider" movie starring Alicia Vikander.
Hopefully Half-Life and Portal will make their way to the big-screen by 2018.
