J.J. Abrams Next Teaming with Steven Spielberg?


Vulture reports that J.J. Abrams will next direct a project that will be “both a tribute to and a collaboration with Steven Spielberg.” According to the site, the script is a “a tip of the hat to [Spielberg’s] movies of the 70’s and early 80’s.”

If the project moves forward, Abrams would direct from his own script starting early fall for Paramount Pictures.

The project reportedly “will deal with everyday people whose personal relationships are tested when they are thrown up against extraordinarily fantastic – and possibly other-worldly – events.”

The movie is expected to have a low budget, but won’t have shaky cam like Cloverfield.
