Crown Prince of modern movie culture says we should expect a cake-related announcement soon
When JJ Abrams (you know - Mr Star Trek, Mr Star Wars, Mr Mission Impossible) and Gabe Newell (Mr Valve) announced a tie-up in 2013 to bring the game and movie worlds together, gamers the world over licked their lips at what might come.
So far though, so quiet.
He told IGN: "We have a meeting coming up next week with Valve, we’re very active, I’m hoping that there will be a Portal announcement fairly soon."
Trachtenberg's last project was to direct 2016 hit 10 Cloverfield Lane, which Abrams produced and is a shared universe 'sequel' to his own 2008 smash Cloverfield, so seems a natural fit to take moviegoers into Cave Johnson's Aperture Science Labs.
