Dan Trachtenberg, the director of 10 Clover Field Lane says that he wouldn’t mind making a game.
Trachtenberg also directed the 2011 Portal Short film Portal: No Escape, so it’s evident that his interest in video games isn’t misplaced.
Speaking to Glixel, the director revealed that he has in fact already started talking about “video game stuff with some people.”. However, it might still be a while till we actually see progress.
“I have a feeling I’ll have to make a few more movies before I ever get a shot at making a game, but I’d love to make a game at some point,” he said. He hasn’t shared any other details regarding the game he would like to make.
JJ Abrams is also hopping on the idea of video game work by working with Infinity Blade studio Chair Entertainment on an action-strategy game called Spyjinx for mobile and PC.
