Two major forces in moviemaking are about to collide. 

“Shaun of the Dead” and “Scott Pilgrim” director and uber-producer J.J. Abrams (“Star Trek,” “Lost,” et al.) are teaming for a secretive sci-fi film project known only as “Collider.”

Abrams will produce along with his Bad Robot partner Nira Park, and Mark Protosevich (“I Am Legend”) is writing the screenplay, according to Deadline.

The plot is — for now — completely under wraps, and as is typical for Abrams’ projects, will likely be kept secret for some time (remember all the crazy rumors about “Cloverfield” and “Super 8”?). 

The busy Wright already has “The World’s End” (which reunites him with “Shaun” duo Simon Pegg and Nick Frost) and Marvel’s “Ant-Man” on his plate, so we may not be seeing “Collider” for a few years.

Abrams has “Star Trek 2” opening next year, while Protosevich also scripted Spike Lee’s upcoming remake of “Old Boy.”

Are you excited for the Abrams-Wright collaboration?
