Paramount Developing Sci-Fi Thriller That Could Be Generic But Seems Mysterious Because J.J. Abrams is Producing It

According to Variety, J.J. Abrams’s Bad Robot and Paramount are working together to develop a spec script purchased from Matt Stuecken (associate producer on the soon-to-be-seen G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) and Josh Campbell. It’s a small budget, science fiction thriller, and there’s literally no more information than that. Most likely, per Abrams’s request.

Finding a director could be a crucial element in discovering some excitement here beyond the basic idea of having Abrams produce something with both science and fiction involved.

But there’s the larger question. Is Abrams’s name and his usual sense of mystery enough to get you interested in something he’s producing?
