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

J.J. Abrams

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.
