Interesting news for Half-Life geeks, lovers and nerds all around the globe


For Many years now i was waiting to get the news that someone has the guts to finally adept Half-Life for the big screen.

Out there were of course some quit good low budget productions, like for example the works from "Purchase Brothers" who created with a laughable budget of 500 bucks the amazing short movie "Escape From City 17".

I wonder what ATS members have to say about these news...

Finally. Great news on all fronts


The question is who do they get to write the story and how close will collaboration be if/when it goes into production? I'd love to see Valve keep it true.

I hope he does a "Cloverfield II" also, that was a good flick (to drink a few beers and watch). I like his mind.

Oh snap! Gabe is an old friend of mine. I haven't spoken to him in a while but will see if I can get some info from him on this and put it up here. That would make for some great movie action!

Will he quit those too? I am totally P'd off that he gave up on his show 'Fringe'. I LOVED that show and it could've gone on for years. GRRRRRRR!
