Valve/J.J. Abrams Collaboration? Half-Life or Portal Movie?

Ars Technica has details from today's D.I.C.E. Summit keynote by Valve's Gabe Newell and Hollywood's J.J. Abrams where one of the topics was a game/movie collaboration. At one point Abrams says he has an "idea for a game that we'd like to work with Valve on" which inspired the following response from Newell: "We're also interested in working with you guys on movies. We're going to see if we can make a Portal movie or a Half-Life movie."

Hm... The G-Man will be the bad guy in the new Star Wars Episode, and Gordon Freeman will turn out to be a nephew of Luke Skywalker, fighting the evil Sith with his Laser Crowbar. Oh, and he'll be flying in the NCC-1701, and he once fell through an artificial wormhole (a PORTAL!) made by Nero, and suddenly found himself in our world suffering from amnesia, where he studied to become a member of Black Mesa!
