A major Paramount document detailing a host of the studio’s upcoming projects may have leaked last night. The e-mail in question provides info on a slew of potential films from the studio including Kathryn Bigelow’s Triple Frontier, Jason Reitman’s Young Adult, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, G.I. Joe 2, World War Z, and a whole lot more. Hit the jump for the list along with added notes for what we already know.
Jack Bender is rightly regarded as one of television’s premier directors, best known as the go-to guy for all of the key episodes of Lost. Bender is in the process of parlaying that reputation into a career in features, having recently signed on to helm Moscow, the next installment of the Jack Ryan franchise. Now he’s developing a thriller with Lost producer J.J. Abrams entitled 7 Minutes to Heaven. Like all the projects housed under Abrams’ Bad Robot banner, the plot details of 7 Minutes are under wraps. However, according to Heat Vision, “it is known to focus on two teens who go into a closet as part of the titular game and find all their friends dead when they come back out.” Whoa — I just got chills.
The original idea comes from Bender, and the pair is currently looking for a capable writer to flesh it out. It is expected that Paramount will ultimately distribute 7 Minutes, if only because of Abrams’ past ties to the studio.
