Portal follows a human woman, Chell, forced to undergo a series of tests within the Aperture Science Enrichment Center by a malicious artificial intelligence computer, GLaDOS, that controls the facility. Each test involves using the “Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device” – the “portal gun” – that creates a human-sized wormhole-like connection between nearly any two flat surfaces. The sequel finds Chell awoken from suspended animation after many years, who must navigate the now-dilapidated Aperture Science Enrichment Center during its reconstruction by the reactivated GLaDOS.
Bad Robot and Valve were said to be teaming up for a Portal film adaptation back in 2013, but since then no information has been released. Knowing that J.J. Abrams and Valve’s Gabe Newell want to bring this to the big screen is a positive sign that this is likely to happen.
There is no release information about this film.
