Valve talks Half-Life movie

GameSpot says, "Valve has been pursuing a Half-Life movie for nearly a decade, but the project has not gotten rolling. That has not changed, but Valve writer Marc Laidlaw has opened up on who his dream candidates would be to direct a big-screen adaptation of the sci-fi shooter series." (Dev, PC, Valve)

Title's a little misleading; all it is is Marc Laidlaw who happens to work at Valve saying he'd like to see a film and who he'd like to see directing it if the rights were ever obtained.

It should not be made into a movie.

Firstly the Director would have to make it to the style of the games which will ruin his/her own style.

If the Director makes it their own way then fans will tear it apart.

Also HL is solid as a game, as a movie hmm not too sure of how it would work out showing Gordon Freeman when here he is a silent character who we barely ever get a glimpse of. There is a certain narrative technique going on with the games and in the movie iteration this will just drop dead.

Most importantly, the title is so dam MISLEADING

I really can't see Half-Life being a movie. Its very essence is tied to the fact that the protagonist is an empty shoe the player steps into. Injecting a personality into Freeman would ruin it IMO.

Of his picks, Peter Jackson is who I would pick. He really made LOTR better than the books. I like Verhoeven but I'm really not sure his style would be right for HL.

If Valve decides to not make any more HL games, then I might be more open to a movie.
