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."

I like JJ and his collaborators. Liked Alias, Lost, Fringe, Mission Impossible movies, the new Trek (I dislike old Trek), and I hope he can breath some new life into the massively diluted Star Wars franchise. I'm not sure how Poertal would work as a movie, though. It was a great game for the action puzzles, but that probably won't translate well into a movie.

Also, Cloverfield and Super 8? Meh. The guy is a good film maker, but he's not infallible.
