Writers Hired for J.J. Abrams’ Zanbato

ON

Deadline reports that “Fringe” co-executive producers Monica Breen and Alison Schapker have been hired to do a rewrite on a top-secret movie project from J.J. Abrams at Paramount.

The site says the script “involves Japanese history and robotics: “swashbuckling robots with swords” is how one insider describes it to me.”

Breen and Schapker also worked with Abrams on “LOST” and “Alias.”
