Director JJ AbramsDirector J.J. Abrams is currently taking forever finishing up his reboot of Star Trek, it also appears that he is working out some details on his next project. As THR reports, he is currently boarding an earthquake disaster movie over at Universal studios, with The Omen scribe David Seltzer on to pen the script. Ultimately, that is the entirety of the news, because as the report states, the details are all locked away in the J.J. Abrams vault:

Details of the story are being kept in a seemingly tremor-proof vault, though as is Abrams’ modus operandi, relationships will be at the core of the project. Abrams arguably rewrote the rules for disaster flicks with “Cloverfield,” which thrust the big story to the background by making the audience see the bedlam through the prism of a personal relationship.

Let’s just go out and say it — Abrams may not be the first director you think of when you think of disaster films, but remember that he was the orchestrator of the Cloverfield phenomenon. He could very well pull it off. Don’t deny it, you know it’s not only possible, but highly likely. Time and further details will tell the rest of the story.

What do you think of J.J. Abrams directing an earthquake flick?
