Is J.J. Abrams teaming up with Steven Spielberg for his next project?

Possibly, according to Coming Soon:

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.

-Could be an interesting set of minds working together...thoughts?

  2. This sounds pretty interesting!

    ...maybe Spielberg will show him how to make two movies in a year as well, so we can get this and a Star Trek sequel. Or is it just wishful thinking that Abrams will direct Star Trek 2?
