Abrams Moves Earth

08.12.2008

I never did see J.J. Abrams' CLOVERFIELD due to my paralyzing fear of spiders. Anything with eight legs or more scares the piss off my underwear and apparently that movie was chock full of monstrous creatures of the sort. But from what I heard, the movie kinda kicked ass and its a shame I'll never be able to check it out.

I rejoice then, at the news that Abrams once more will dip his finger in the disaster film pool, with a planned movie featuring an earthquake for Universal, on which he will act as producer. Teaming with THE OMEN scribe David Seltzer, the uber-producer is keeping plot details tightly under wraps (as per usual). We do know however, that Abrams places a great deal of importance on character development and the exploration of human relationships (Lost, anyone?) so it is likely that the earthquake will serve only as a backdrop to a sure-to-be profound lesson on life, love, and probably loss. Sounds good to me! Just please J.J., no arachnids this time, ok?
Extra Tidbit: It has been reported that Abrams will direct a "dark, children's film" entitled MYSTERY ON FIFTH AVENUE

abrams is getting too much credit for Lost. He hasn't done much on that show for a little while now; its the other guys who make it what it is.

And his previous projects (Alias) weren't even that good. So, I think he needs to prove himself as a good filmaker before being hyped by every little thing he touches.

Yeah, Abram's stuff is good but 1906 is definitely the one I'm holding out for. Brad Byrd hasn't made a bad film yet and I think he'll do just as well with live-action.

Abrams may be an excellent producer...but it really makes you feel bad for the talented folk like Damon Lindelof, Carlton Cuse, Drew Goddard and Matt Reeves who seem to get very little credit for their successes...

I'm all for Abrams' stuff after "Cloverfield" but might this conflict with Brad Bird's "1906" earthquake film? Will we have another "Volcano"/"Dante's Peak" or "Armageddon"/"Deep Impact" year?
