The mysterious teaser for the J.J. Abrams produced Paramount film that was attached to Transformers in many theaters (currently referred to as 1-18-08) has been released online and is available to download.
The film will be directed by Matt Reeves from a script written by Drew Goddard. It stars Micahel Stahl-David, Odet Jasmin, Mike Vogel and Lizzy Kaplan.
If it wasn’t already obvious, the untitled film will release on January 18, 2008. An official website is active at 1-18-08.com.
Update: JJ Abrams dropped a line at AICN, and communicated that the Ethan Haas sites (ethanhaasisright.com and ethanhaaswaswrong.com) are not affiliated with the film. Here’s his message:
Thanks for your support of our little movie. I can’t wait to talk to you more about it — of course, knowing you, by the time we talk you’ll know more than I will.
Regarding the online stuff you posted: yeah, 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. 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.
Stay cool the rest of the summer — and thanks per usual for AICN!
