    "The creators of HALF-LIFE are warming up to the idea of turning their best-selling PC video game into a feature film. Today's Variety has a story hyping the notion of a HALF-LIFE movie. The timing of the piece makes sense, with Valve set to release HALF-LIFE 2 this fall and undoubtedly earn many more millions.

    The thing is, and what Variety fails to mention, is that Valve had been contemplating turning HALF-LIFE into a movie a number of years ago. We know of one negotiation between the company, a film producer, an Oscar-winning special effects man and a major Hollywood studio that fell apart before contracts could be signed. Does Valve now believe the time is finally right for a Hollywood deal to be struck?


    The first HALF-LIFE game let players assume the character of Gordon Freeman, a scientist working at the top secret Black Mesa military base. After accidentally opening a portal to another dimension, a host of strange and deadly creatures overran the complex, leaving Gordon one of the few survivors. Players had to find a way out of the base for Gordon and stay alive, both from the attacking aliens as well as a military strike team sent to clean-up the mess."

    I hope that they make it a good movie. I still got to play the game.
