It's about time there is a bit of news on JJ Abram's 1-18-08 monster flick that doesn't consist of visiting the official site for a new photo. TV Guide is reporting that JJ Abrams' favorite casting choice, Greg Grunberg (Alias, Heroes), has been cast in his upcoming tale of a monster wreaking havoc on New York City.
From Tv Guide:
One movie that Abrams is casting Grunberg in is the buzzerific disaster flick known only by its myriad working titles (i.e., Cloverfield, 1-18-08, Slusho). "It'll probably be something where no one will be able to tell it's me," he said. "As you know, J.J. calls me his good-luck charm, so he's got to put me in there somewhere. I actually went to the set the other night, and it was really exciting and cool. The budget is not astronomical. But they're doing incredible things."
JJ Abrams and 1-18-08 director Matt Reeves are currently shooting in Los Angeles.
