J.J. Abrams Informs Public It Can Get Excited For Next Mystery Project

It might be nice to have a timeline on this so we know exactly how long we have to be on the edge of our seats, but J.J. Abrams has nevertheless dipped his toes into what might become his next project over at Paramount.

According to Deadline Omaha, Fringe co-executive producers Monica Breen and Alison Schapker have been hired to re-write a script for Zanbato – a story involving Japanese history, fighting robots, and whatever else the pair has up their sleeves.

As we all know, Zanbato is a type of large sword called a “horse-chopping sword” because it was built to kill a rider and his horse in one fell slice.

Robots with big swords? Abrams? The Fringe writers? How long do we get to be in this state of excitement again?
