Edgar Wright, Mark Protosevich and J.J. Abrams Team Up for Collider

Edgar WrightDirector Edgar Wright (“Shaun of the Dead”, the upcoming “Ant-Man” — if, you know, that movie ever actually gets made, I’m still doubtful to be perfectly honest with you), screenwriter Mark Protosevich (“I am Legend”, the upcoming “Oldboy” remake) and geek producer J.J. Abrams (“Star Trek”, various geek stuff on TV and in the movies), are teaming up with Paramount for a new sci-fi movie called “Collider”.

With Wright slotted in to direct, I’m going to go out on a limb and call “Collider” a sci-fi action/comedy. I could be wrong, of course, but Wright seems most comfortable doing comedy, and why not, he’s super good at it.

Since this is a J.J. Abrams-involved project, of course no one knows what the movie is about, because surely, just the release of “Collider’s” logline (or, heaven forbid, a plot description — gasp!!!) might cause the universe to implode. See? Abrams is just looking out for us. And the universe. Plus, it drives movie sites like us insane, which I suspect is one of the reasons Abrams does it, the cheeky bastard.

Whatever happens with “Collider”, it’ll probably have to wait a while, because Wright is already attached to direct the pub comedy “The World’s End” with his “Shaun of the Dead” buddies Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Then, of course, there’s that “Ant-Man” movie, which Marvel teased all the fanboys with an official logo mock-up at this year’s Comic Con in San Diego, but refused to say when to expect it…
