1-18-08/Cloverfield,Abrams , trackback
No more need for crappy pirated video of the new Abrams movie trailer, Paramount have officially released the trailer and it is up at Apple (click image)
Still no idea what the film is called (‘Cloverfield’ is just a code name), but it may actually be called 1-18-08. The 1-18-08.com site has been ‘updated’ with a whole new photo (woohoo). Speculation is all over the place on the plot, but nothing is nailed down. The ethanhaaswasright.com online game and blog promise more info by August 1st. TrekMovie.com has been told that more info may come sooner at Comic-Con. If you missed it, The Hollywood Reporter has more info on the secrecy behind the project
Paramount greenlighted the project under a veil of heavy secrecy in February, about the same time that Abrams agreed to the take over the directing reins of the new "Star Trek" film.
The casting process was just as mysterious. No scripts or even scene pages were sent out; agents who were contacted were simply asked if their client wanted to be in the movie or not. Eventually a cast,made up mostly of relative unknowns, was put together; it includes Michael Stahl-David ("The Black Donnellys"), Odet Jasmin, Mike Vogel ("Supercross") and Lizzy Caplan ("The Class").
As we learn more we will bring it to you. Yes we will continue to report on this new Abrams project
