The lights are on
Two of the most acclaimed and powerful content creators in entertainment might be joining forces in the future. At their D.I.C.E. keynote, Gabe Newell and Star Trek director J.J. Abrams hinted at some future collaborations.
While no specific projects were confirmed, the pair did talk about some of their ideas, including possible Half-Life and Portal movies. Abrams also said that he had a concept for a video game that he feels Valve could help create.
Later today, we should have a full video of their presentation to post, so stay tuned.

I am surprised Matt didn't say Star Trek/ Star Wars Episode VII director when talking about Abrams.
Both games wouldn't make great films, the plots would be thin as ice seeing as both games main character are protagonists.
I'd love to see Portal from the First person point of view, like Cloverfield.
Half Life... I don't know. Gabe will look after it though <3
Please, oh please, somebody let Valve make a Star Wars game! Lucas Arts is just getting to lethargic to get anything done these days. Have Glados cross-over into it too! (lol)
I'm a huge fan of J.J. Abrams...not so much Gabe Newell.
Yes. These are the collaborations we need
J.J. Abrams? Director of lost?
Gaben? COUNT ME IN!!!!
I wonder how Valve would do making a Star Wars game...
J.J. is honestly the only director I trust to do an IP justice. His original creations are amazing as well.
The only person Gabe Newell should be collaborating with is a dietitian.
Why would u go to D.I.C.E the Games they have are battlefield and those are just awfull. I got bf3 then shortly after I beat that non sence of a campaine I got rid of it
