While that portal movie that Danny Trachtenberg
made was totally awesome, I don't know that there's enough in Portal to make a movie.
Half Life (1 or 2), on the other hand are basically already storyboarded and would make great movies once adapted into a script. While I think JJ is a great fit (he's a geek of the first order) for something like that, his plate is pretty full for the next decade. Let's run through the list: Joss
: his talent is really with large casts, and HL is a lone wolf story. Still, a top director for this material.Zack Snyder
: excels at action, but I'd want him to cut back on the slo mo.Michael Bay
: As long as he got a good script, an over the top actiony HL could be fun. Thinking more The Rock and The Island, not Transformers.Neil Marshall
: Directed The Descent, would definitely make a tension filled HL movie.Sam Raimi
: A solid choice. Good for this material having done both action and horror.
My number one though?Chris Nolan
: This would be an amazing Half Life movie. Gritty, with the right balance between action and realism.
