J.J. Abrams said the film, based on Valve’s portal, is still in the works, and according to IGN, the script has finally been written. Abram is light on details, but says Warner Bros. is excited about the direction the film is going, and it “feels like it’s finally on the train.”
We originally heard about the film in 2013, when Abram and Gabe were together at the Newell Dice Summit.
At the time, Abrams told Polygon that the plan was “as real as it was in Hollywood.” That was eight years ago, so it seemed like she was OK to make such a sofa.
Speaking to IGN, Abram noted that his construction company Bad Badot is not actively involved in the “half-life thing” at this time.
Like games, movies can suffer from Evil Hell, although some find it out: Zach Snyder’s Army of the Dead, which was released on Netflix on May 21, 2007.
Needless to say, while it looks like signs of life for the movie, now is not the time to break up, celebrity muffins.
It looks like it’s still in early development, and we’ll just have to wait and see if it actually manages to solve the puzzle of how to film in the half-life universe, or if it gets stuck flying between two portals.
