Valve Partners with J.J. Abrams to Create Movies & Games

Gabe Newell and filmmaker J.J. Abrams today announced a collaboration; through their respective companies, Valve and Bad Robot Productions, the two will work together on creating games and movies.

After speaking at the DICE 2013 conference in Las Vegas on the topic of “Storytelling Across Platforms: Who Benefits Most, the Audience or the Player?” the two decided to take action. Newell specifically mentioned that J.J.’s team could craft a Half-Life or Portal film, and Abrams said that Valve could help create a game with Bad Robot.

Whatever game comes out of this union, I’m sure it’ll be filled with lens flares. Let’s just hope it doesn’t delay Half-Life 3.

Is J.J. Abrams the only person in Hollywood anymore?

You could always ask Michael Bay.
