J.J. Abrams’ Stranger

J.J. Abrams has a new mystery project out, code named: Stranger. Take a look at the trailer here:

Whilst everyone else is speculating on what the project could be, I’ll throw my suspicious hat into the ring… J.J Abrams is a fan of The Mariner and is adapting it for the screen! Of course, it must be true! What’s more, he must have had access to the original artwork, which you can see below.

Original Reverse of Cover – Loose Lips Sink Ships concept

As you can see artist Christopher Hayes originally pursued a loose lips sink ships concept, which references the fear of triggering cases of Mindlessness, but also a deleted flashback scene in which [SPOILERS] Harris sews his crew’s lips shut as they begin to go mad. The scene was intended to follow on from his London flashback to demonstrate what happened to his doomed command before the ship crashed into Grace’s zoo.

Hmm.. whenever I discuss the plot of The Mariner it sounds damned ridiculous.

Anyway, in all seriousness, I have no idea what Stranger is, so calm down.
