Abrams Producing Boilerplate

Boilerplate creators at Wondercon '10It seems that JJ Abrams doesn't have enough on his plate as he has decided to produce another movie according to the Hollywood Reporter. The movie will be done under his Bad Robot banner. Right now it’s all in the preliminary stages with Paramount buying the rights to the novel "Boilerplate: History's Mechanical Marvel" by Paul Guinan and Anina Bennett and turning over to Abrams to turn into a movie.

THR describes Boilerplate as "the story of the world’s first robot, who, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, fought alongside Teddy Roosevelt and Lawrence of Arabia, journeyed to the South Pole and was involved in the silent movie business before disappearing on the battlefields of World War I." We will probably hear more about this next year as the movie is likely at least one to two years away from getting before the cameras, if it ever does. Until an official greelight, no movie and right now all this idea has is a strong advocate to get it made but no guarantees.
