    Director J.J. Abrams may be busy working on a couple little franchises with "Star" in the titles, but that's not stopping him from trying to launch a few other franchises. Abrams recently attended the D.I.C.E. Conference in Las Vegas where he joined the president of video game company Valve to announce that they are in early development to bring the games Half-Life and Portal to the big screen. Though video games have had a checkered past when it comes to movies, there are a string of games headed to the big screen, including Need for Speed, Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell, and as many of you are aware, Half-Life and Portal are two of the most successful franchises of all time. Half-Life tells the story of an experiment gone wrong that brings aliens from another dimension to Earth and a scientist who must survive not only the alien onslaught, but also the military sent to wipe away any evidence of the accident ever happening. Portal, on the other hand, is a little harder to explain, but involves our hero awakening in a room with no memory tasked with trying to traverse various mazes using a gun that opens portals. A popular live-action short film was made back in 2011 that gave us a glimpse at what a Portal movie might look like. So far both films are in the very early stages and no studios are attached, but how do you feel about Half-Life and Portal movies? Share your thoughts below or over on Twitter @ClevverMovies.
