from DICE where Gabe Newell of Valve Software
and J.J. Abrams had a little talk about working together to bring the two biggest IPs of Valve to the big screen. All they really talked about was seeing if they can work together to do this so this is nothing more than some small talk between friends, but it could lead to bigger and better things.
