Abrams courting Spielberg?

He created Cloverfield , gave a whole new life to the new Star Trek franchise, and exec produced some seriously successful TV programmes; but now JJ Abrams is hoping to collaborate with Steven Spielberg.

Apparently Abrams has written a script that pays homage to Spielberg’s films of the late 70s and 80s and he’s hoping to direct - with a view to get Spielberg involved.
