J.J. Abrams Developing HALF-LIFE And PORTAL Movies

Don't worry he won't be directing, he'll be busy with other things....probably. But his production company Bad Robot will be teaming with Valve Software to adapt some of each others properties for video games and films. BR will help Valve make movies and Valve will help BR make video games. "We sort of reached the point where we decided that we needed to do more than talk,"said Gabe Newell of Valve. [Quote supplied by Engadget]

Video game adaptations appear to be in a bit of a resurgence with recognizable talent signing up for films such as:

World of Warcraft--Duncan Jones to direct, Johnny Depp rumored to star
Need for Speed -- Scott Waugh to direct, Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots and Michael Keaton to star
Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2 -- Kevin Tancharoen to direct, Casper Van Dien, Brian Tee, Cary Tagawa to star
Splinter Cell -- Tom Hardy to star
Assassins Creed -- Michael Fassbender to star

Ruben Fleischer To Helm Big Screen Adaptation Of SPY HUNTER Video Game

Deadline reports that Warner Bros. have finally found a director for the big screen adaptation of Spy Hunter. Ruben Fleischer, who recently helmed Gangster Squad, will take on the video adaptation for the studio working on a script from Carter Blanchard. While Fleischer has previously tackled Zombieland and 30 Minutes Or Less, Blanchard is best known only for Glimmer, a spec script that sold to DreamWorks and has Ringan Ledwidge (Gone) directing.

Colin Farrell And Paula Patton In Talks For Lead Roles In Duncan Jones' WORLD OF WARCRAFT

According to Deadline, casting is already well underway for Legendary Pictures and Atlas Entertainment's World of Warcraft (which now looks set to be distributed by Universal after the former's recent split with Warner Bros.). Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol star Paula Patton is apparently in talks for a lead role, as is Daredevil and Total Recall's Colin Farrell. He's apparently not a dead cert at this point, with sources telling the site that it's currently 50/50. Director Duncan Jones (Source Code) is also testing with other actors for other major roles in the video game adaptation.
