Jon Favreau Ready to Start a Revolution
Several days ago we brought you the news that "Supernatural" creator Eric Kripke and the master of all things mysterious, J.J. Abrams, were working together on a new pilot for NBC. Today a director has been found to kick off the spooky!
According to Deadline, Jon Favreau has been tapped to direct Eric Kripke/JJ Abrams’ high-concept NBC pilot "Revolution". The project, written by "Supernatural" creator Kripke, is being described as a high-octane action drama following a group of characters struggling to survive and reunite with loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist.
Abrams, Kripke and Bryan Burk are executive producing. This marks the first drama pilot directing gig for Favreau, who has helmed a few comedy pilots in the past, including that for the ABC series "In Case Of Emergency" starring David Arquette. In addition to "Revolution", Favreau has "Tweaked", a comedy pilot at CBS. The project, which Favreau wrote on spec and is attached to direct, was greenlit in October but has not been cast yet and may shoot outside of the regular pilot season.
