Abrams Clarifies 1-18-08 Talk

With the teaser trailer for a top secret monster movie project attached to “Transformers” causing a lot of stir, news has run rampant the past couple of days with odd viral sites and blogs popping up all over and various wild rumor flying about the untitled-as-yet film which is being referred to by its release date or as “Cloverfield”.

Now, producer J.J. Abrams tells AICN that “We’re doing some fun stuff on the web. But, obviously, if the movie doesn’t kick some massive ASS, who gives a rat’s about what’s online? So as you can imagine, we’re focusing mostly on THAT.”

More importantly he shot down the biggest source for speculation – “For what it’s worth, the only site of ours that people have even FOUND is the 1-18-08.com site. The others (like the Ethan Haas sites) have nothing to do with us.”

Those sites are EthanHaaswasright.com and EthanHaaswaswrong.blogspot.com which were thought to be a big part of the project.
