J.J. Abrams to Collaborate on First Novel

J.J. Abrams seems to be conquering one medium after another — first with television (Alias, Lost), then film (Star Trek, Cloverfield). Now, the writer/director/producer is moving on to literature.

Publishing company Little, Brown and Co. has acquired the rights to a novel conceived by Abrams. The book is set to be written by Alive in Necropolis author Doug Dorst.

Currently, the novel is untitled, and in typical Abrams fashion, details surrounding the plot are being kept secret. The publisher is aiming for a fall 2012 release on the Mulholland Books imprint.

Once Abrams has his way with literature, it’ll finally be time for him to release that mind-blowing concept album we hope he’s been working on.
