J.J. Abrams may not have been able to keep the lid on his Mystery Box while filming ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ but it looks like he’s up to his old ways again with his latest project: Abrams, along with his company Bad Robot, is producing a new mystery movie about—what else?—aliens, with first-time movie director Chris Alender. And no, it’s not a sequel to ‘Cloverfield.’

It's been a good long while since we've heard anything concrete (or metal?) from Bad Robot's proposed HBO adaptation of 1973 sci-fi classic 'Westworld,' but with 'True Detective' raising the network's bar for casting, the J.J. Abrams-produced drama has assembled some major A-list talent. Joining the 'Westworld' pilot are none other than Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood, with 'X-Men' star James Marsden in talks for a role as well.

J.J. Abrams is infamous for his "mystery box" method of promoting his and his production company's projects, deliberately obscuring details (like the nature of 'Super 8') and sometimes outright lying (Khan in 'Star Trek Into Darkness'). He's taken it all to a new level with 'Stranger,' a Bad Robot production that is so tightly under wraps that we didn't hear about it until this teaser arrived ... and we don't even know if it's a movie, a TV show or something else entirely.

As with the most recent development seasons, 'Star Trek Into Darkness' director J.J.
