Popular television actor, Kyle Chandler, has reportedly been cast in another typically enigmatic JJ Abrams project, Super 8, with young Elle Fanning also apparently bagging a part.

According to Empire Online, by way of Vulture, the news comes from a reliable "source" working on the production who Abrams will now probably beat severely with a sack full of paper clips. No word on what character, or even if there are characters, frankly; all we know is Steven Spielberg is producing, with Abrams directing.

The film is yet to go before a lens, despite the emergence of a teaser trailer; so if that scene appears in the film then technically it has I suppose. Whatever, I wanna see it already...
