Even before Castle Rock, July's TV series inspired by the work of horror author Stephen King, J.J. Abrams is drawing attention to another project.

In line to direct is Julius Avery, a sign of confidence in the pair's working relationship given that Avery is helming supernatural World War II thriller Overlord, at one point thought to be part of the 'Cloverfield' universe but now distanced from the loose monster movie collection by Abrams himself.
