From HomeLan Fed’s interview with Gabe Newell, head of Valve, the team behind possibly the most eagerly-anticipated game of all time:
HomeLAN – Last year, the demo of Doom 3 at E3 got id Software a film deal for the game. Is there renewewed interest in a Half-Life movie thanks to this year’s E3 demo?
Gabe Newell – There have been multiple offers to do a movie based on Half-Life which we have turned down. This has accelerated after E3. I could go on for hours talking about IP management and the media business, but the simple answer is that we don’t want to make a Half-Life movie until we know how it can be as good a movie as Half-Life was as a game.
