The Portal movie from director JJ Abrams and Valve is still alive. Abrams himself confirmed as much in an interview with IGN, saying the project has a script and it’s in the works at Warner Bros. However, Abrams’ Half-Life film is less of a certainty.
“We actually do have a script that’s being written for the Portal movie now at [Warner Bros.]. We’re really excited about the take and the pitch, so it feels like that thing’s finally on the rails,” he said.
The Portal movie was announced all the way back in 2013, so it’s been a long time coming. This isn’t out of the ordinary, however, as Hollywood projects can move very slowly. The Uncharted movie, for example, has been in the works since 2008–it’s finally coming in 2022.
Abrams did not say who wrote the latest script for the Portal film, nor do we know anything about
