Samurai Jack: The Movie Produced by Abrams?

According to a report from Frederator Films blog, JJ Abrams has agreed to co-produce Samurai Jack: The Movie. Samurai Jack is an Emmy award winning cartoon series (intro below) that appeared on Cartoon Network from 2001 to 2004 (wiki entry).

The post is from back in September but just recently noticed. Apparently the goal is to create a feature film length animated movie, a first for Abrams if this project moves ahead. Click the link above for the history of the project but as of right now the movie is in the hopeful phase as nothing definitive is planned but the clout of Abram's Bad Robot Productions increases the probabilities of the film being made. Likely the goal at this point is getting a studio to foot the bill for a draft of a script.
