J.J. Abrams and 'Lost' Director Team Up for Thriller '7 Minutes in Heaven'


Jack Bender first came up with the idea of developing a movie based on the game and the 'Star Trek' helmer has signed up to produce it.

J.J. Abrams and Jack Bender are going to get "7 Minutes in Heaven". The Hollywood Reporter (THR) has just reported that the "Cloverfield" producer and his production company Bad Robot are producing the movie based on "the teenage makeout game of snogging in the closet" with the idea originally coming from Bender.

Bender, who recently directed the final episode of "Lost", is expected to serve as helmer for the upcoming feature film. The project is said being developed internally, but it will likely be set up at Paramount, the studio home of Bad Robot.

On the plot line, THR says it will focus on two teens who go into a closet to play 7 Minutes in Heaven and find out all their friends dead when they come back out. Abrams, Bender and Bad Robot are currently looking for a writer to turn the story into a screenplay.

J.J. Abrams has "Super 8", untitled Star Trek sequel as well as "Mission: Impossible IV" lined up for him after wrapping up "Morning Glory". Bender, in the meantime, has reportedly signed up to direct SyFy's new pilot "Alphas". The actor/filmmaker has previously directed several episodes of TV shows created by Abrams such as "Felicity", "Alias" and "Lost".
