While not exactly 'Gaming' news, Portal and its sequel are more or less cult classics. The surprise new IP seen Valve's Orange Box release stunned critics with its blend of mind-numbing puzzles and sentient AI humor causing a sequel to eventually roll around and stun us again.
So in a time where more and more video games are seeing screen adaptions, it's still a shock to hear that Portal is likely the next one to the thrown into the writer's room. Though talks of both Portal and Half-Life movies appeared a few years back, IGN cornered J.J. Abrams at the premier of Westworld where he confirmed a meeting with Valve was set to go ahead next week.
Speaking to IGN Abrams confirmed "We have a meeting coming up next week with Valve, we’re very active, I’m hoping that there will be a Portal announcement fairly soon,"
Though I can't even fathom how a Portal movie would look in person, I'm all for seeing Valve's story-centric beasts on the big screen.
