J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot recently signed a massive development deal with Warner Bros. which has led to a new Superman film that will focus on a black incarnation of the DC Comics hero and an HBO Max series version of the Justice League Dark.
It looks like Abrams is going to be indeed tackling a live-action film based on the video game Portal as he mentioned in an interview with IGN, that the project is being actively written for Warner Bros. and they have a script on the go.
ABRAMS:”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.”
In Portal, the player controls the protagonist, Chell, from a first-person perspective as she is challenged to navigate through a series of test chambers using the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, or portal gun, under the watchful supervision of the artificial intelligence GLaDOS.
A live-action short was directed by 10 Cloverfield Lane’s Dan Trachtenberg, the filmmaker is about to begin shooting Predator 5 next month in Calgary, Alberta.
