Remember Josh Hartnett? The star of '30 Days of Night,' who pretty much has been off the radar for the last three years, may be reuniting with his 'Lucky Number Slevin' director Paul McGuigan for 'Tomorrow,' a time travel thriller that follows a man desperate to save his family on the day of their murder, but can't control the short-term time travel phenomenon he's trapped in. According to TheWrap, Hartnett is in talks to join the production, which is scheduled to begin in Louisiana later this year.

According to a report at HeatVision, J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot production company are developing a thriller based on the teenage makeout game of snogging in the closet. The project, called '7 Minutes in Heaven,' focuses on two teens who go into a closet as part of the titular game and find all their friends dead when they come back out. Jack Bender, who directed the final episode of ABC's 'Lost,' came up with the idea, and is attached to direct. The film most likely will be set up at Paramount, where Bad Robot has its home.
