Valve to bring Portal, Half-Life to the Big Screen, New Hitman Movie set to Ruin Universe

Everyone knows films about games are pretty terrible, but today a spark of hope has been ignited with the news that Valve is eyeing up Hollywood… while new Hitman news points to the most horrific film creation since Uwe Boll tried to film himself making a game. Holding back tears of joy and vomiting convulsions simultaneously, Daily Reaction’s Seb and Dan try to facepalm and high five, but get confused and end up slapping each other.
-PSLS (Culture, Half-Life, Hitman: Absolution, PC, Portal, PS3, Xbox 360)

WIOTHOUT A DOUBT... JASON STATHAM SHOULD BE AGENT 47, THE HITMAN.

ryan gosling lol, if he acts like he did in "drive" and didn't smile, he'd make a damn good hitman!!

I can't believe the Hitman news, so many talented actors in Hollywood and they always pick the ones who can't pull off a video game character

I mean this guy is our new Hitman

http://www.thehollywoodnews...

Can you honestly imagine him being the blad, cold hearted killer....nope

As for the Half Life/Portal movie possibility I'd say it's pretty good that so far JJ Abrams has expressed an interest in it

I'd rather them do Half Life though, Portal would be trickier to do in my opinion, possible but trickier. I mean it would probably have to be a comedy/psychological film seeing Chell crack under the pressure of being isolated underground, doing test after test after test

The guy at my safeway should play hitman. I dont have any pics, but seriously, other than his goofy personality and a lack of a bar code, he is like a twin. Much better than sir smiley there.

I think if they are going to do Portal they have to start with Half-Life story to get a feel of the Half-Life universe and technology.

I don't want any of those movies.
TrendyGamers  +   537d ago
Looking forward to the Portal and Half-Life movies. I didn't mind the first Hitman movie, but will probably skip on the reboot.

How will the movie work if Gordon is a mute?, unless they plan on having him talk in Half Life 3 too..
doctorstrange  +   537d ago
Other characters can talk
annus  +   537d ago
The same way they told the story in the games? Even a narration could work if they somehow were so bad that they couldn't do it using other people, writing, and the scenes. of the movie

He'll just smile and nod a lot.

One thing with the HL series Valve can never do is give Gordon a voice. Everyone who has played the series has their own thought of how he would sound, so to not upset the fanbase Valve will never do it. I'd personally would love a Portal movie, but i dont want a terrible HL or Portal movie. Im on such a fence with this idea......

Nicolas Cage and Morgan Freeman in EVERY ROLE!

I try not to take video game movies too seriously but I liked the Hitman movie as well as Silent Hills. And I also like me some Resident Evil because of Milla of course. I know I'm in the minority in liking these movies but who cares because if I like them that's all that counts....haha

Ultr  +   537d ago

doctorstrange  +   537d ago

Ultr  +   536d ago
