JJ Abrams' mysterious Super 8 gets Kyle Chandler, Elle Fanning and more

09.20.2010

We're still trying to fill in some blanks on filmmaker JJ Abrams' covert project SUPER 8. We know that he's working with Steven Spielberg and it's been described as a "tribute" to his sci-fi movies, leading to speculation that it will somehow involve kids discovering extraterrestrials.

Now a couple more blanks have been filled in, with word that "Friday Night Lights" star Kyle Chandler and Dakota's kid sis Elle Fanning (THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON) are now on board, presumably as humans.

UPDATE: The Wrap is now reporting that actors Ron Eldard (BLACK HAWK DOWN) and Noah Emmerich (THE TRUMAN SHOW) are also on board, along with Gabriel Basso, Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee and Zach Mills.

The movie is due in theaters next summer, so we're going to be teased and tantalized for several more months. For the moment, you can seek clues in the original teaser:

Good for Noah Emmerich. He is one of those "that guy" actors who always does a good job (The Truman Show, Little Children, Pride and Glory) and never gets the recognition for it.

Kyle Chandler deserves some type of recognition for his work on FNL.

Chandler acts like a better coach then most football coaches actually are. The guy is one of the best on tv and glad to see him in this.

You had me at Abrams. Now you add Chandler, who continues to deliver the most underrated performances on TV? Perfect.

TIRING

So tire of mystery this, secretive that ... I guess they do this to spark interest, but it's just so over hyped -- I wait for the trailer and see what's it's all about then!

so we're basically getting

Dakota's sister probably playing a similar pain in the ass character she played in War of the Worlds? Hope not.

On the plus side, it's actually an impossibility that she'll be more annoying than Dakota Fanning.
