J.J. Abrams is known for many things in film and television, but one of the biggies is his secretive nature. We still know virtually nothing about Star Wars: Episode VII, a tactic he's used when making other features like the most recent installments of Star Trek. Last month, he released a teaser trailer called "Stranger" that left many people scratching their heads (see above). But now, the mystery has been revealed, and it's not quite what we expected. Neither a film nor TV project, Abrams is working on a book!
A collaboration between Abrams and Doug Dorst (Alive in Necropolis), S. finds a college student and a grad student coming together due to notes written in the margins of V.M. Straka's Ship of Theseus. We could continue to parse meaning from the official description, but considering the enigmatic nature of the creators and the creations, it might make sense to just check out the synopsis yourself.
S. debuts on Oct. 29.
