Variety has learned today of an incredible pairing bringing even more video game adaptations to the silver screens.
DICE (which stands for Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain) attendees were treated to the surprise news that J.J. Abrams’ (“Star Wars: Episode VII”) Bad Robot (“Cloverfield”) and video game giant Valve will start working together to bring two incredible games to theaters: “Half-Life” and “Portal.”
Both games are critically loved and commercially successful with huge followings so it makes sense that they would be next to make the transition to the big screen, and with Valve and Bad Robot working hand-in-hand to make sure they are perfect fans are sure to be in for a real treat.
So now we have a new “Hitman,” a “Gears of War” and “God of War” in development, “Splinter Cell” with Tom Hardy (“Warrior”), “Assassin’s Creed” with Michael Fassbender (“Shame”), and more all coming to theaters within the next 4 years.
It seems like video game adaptations are the next big thing (move over Marvel!).
