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.

It wouldn't be a Bad Robot Production w/o Greg Grunberg! I can't wait to find out what this movie is actually about. I always worry about movies that spend most of their time on a marketing plan. They usally end badly.

So since Star Trek will essentially be a Bad Robot production as well, can we count on Grunberg popping in somewhere in that film too? Perhaps as a red shirt who gets offed somewhere along the way?

That'd be so cool. After all, he basically got that kind of role in Lost :p

The website http://www.slusho.org/ has an interesting take on the movie. It's suggesting the movie's a remake of 'The Beast From From 20,000 Fathoms'. It has a utube clip for the trailer and it definitely has some elements of the 1-18-08 trailer.

I was waiting for news like this. I mean Grunberg pretty much goes where Abrams goes. Its cool to be able to hook up your boy with work every now and then.

1-18-08 is going to be Rampage the movie.. I'm sure

JJ calls Grunberg his "good luck charm?" Yeah, right. I'll bet he really calls him "sugarpants." Just kidding, folks. I am a fan of both of them.

What's the connection to the Rampage game that leads you to that conclusion? And, why does everyone ignore that there is a website called www.parasitemovie.com that has the preview on it? Wouldn't that lead to the conclusion that the movie is called Parasite? I am just wondering what people think...

1- Rampage because people hear different roars, and Slusho! could be the drink turning people into monsters, and because people can't believe it's something new. Nothing else. 2- Parasite site was a fake-for-traffic linking to unrelated business sites and eventually became a simple link to the trailer. -Pol, Slushistorian!

Hey, new picture up on the 1-19-08 site. Unfortunately they decided to go back to the party. BTW, if you have not noticed, you can flip the pictures over by spinning them in a cirlce. The latest one has a note on the back of it.
