J.J. Abrams Producing ‘Micronauts’ Movie

J.J. Abrams (Star Trek) is in negotiations to produce a movie about the Japanese interchangeable toys Micronauts. Hasbro has just acquired the line, which first debuted in 1974 in Japan as Microman. Abrams had the following to say about the potential project, “Sometimes, when someone is not a celebrity and you are casting them in a role, everyone who is in a seat of authority voices questions about that actor’s talent, sex appeal, looks, ability — their everything. But then they get the role, and suddenly they are on the cover of every magazine, and nobody questions those things again. In retrospect, everyone says, ‘Of course that person is a star.'”
