J.J. Abrams Still Committed To PORTAL And HALF-LIFE Video Game Films

Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams says he's still developing film adaptations of Valve's Half-Life and Portal. "...we've got writers, and we're working on both those stories."

With J.J. Abrams departing the Star Wars franchise (from a creative standpoint, he'll still serve as producer), surely he has loads of free time.  With so many video game films on the horizon or in the works, perhaps the time is finally right to fast track the long delayed Portal and Half-Life films?  Speaking to IGN to promote 10 Cloverfield Lane, Abrams stated, "Not yet, but they're in development.  And we've got writers, and we're working on both those stories. But nothing that would be an exciting update."  

 Abrams and Valve's Gabe Newell first hinted at their collaboration back at DICE 2013 but no substantial updates have been released about the project in the three years since.  Do you think a Portal and/or Half-Life video game could be successful? Would you want Abrams to direct or just produce?
