J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg set to team up
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The NY Mag’s Vulture section is reporting that J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg are teaming up for a project that will be both a tribute and collaboration to Senor Spielbergo. The film “will deal with everyday people whose personal relationships are tested when they are thrown up against extraordinarily fantastic – and possibly other-worldly – events.” Unfortunately, that’s all we know about the film at this point and that doesn’t really tell us too much. They did point out that it won’t be shot on shaky cam, so the “amateur filmmaker” route is probably out. It also doesn’t sound like a documentary, so we’re left scratching our heads until further details emerge.
Clearly, almost all of Spielberg’s best films have dealt with that exact description, but I don’t know how you film a movie that pays him tribute by using such a broad plot. If that’s the case, then almost every summer blockbuster made in the past 20 years is a tribute to Steven Spielberg.
