    Liman Jumps to Helm 'Jumper'

    By Brad Brevet
    Source: Variety | November 11, 2005

    It appears a new trilogy is in the works as Doug Liman will direct Jumper, a film adaptation of the Steven Gould novel.
    The original script by David Goyer is getting a rewrite by Fight Club scripter Jim Uhls.

    Apparently the idea is to turn the story into a trilogy as it centers on a teenager who discovers he can teleport from one place to another. The 17-year-old first learns that he can jump when he escapes his abusive father.

    The film is scheduled to go into production Spring 2006.

    Is this a popular enough book to warrant a trilogy?

    Samuel L. Jackson in Liman's Jumper

    Source: The Hollywood Reporter
    July 10, 2006



    Samuel L. Jackson is set to star in Regency Enterprises' Jumper, says The Hollywood Reporter. Doug Liman is directing the sci-fi thriller, making it his first feature helming gig since Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

    Based on the Steven Gould novel, Jumper follows a kid from a broken home who discovers that he has the ability to teleport. In his quest for the man he believes is responsible for the death of his mother, the kid draws the attention of the National Security Agency and another youth with the same abilities.

    Jackson will play the NSA agent tracking the jumper, and may have ulterior motives for finding him.

    Tom Sturridge, Jamie Bell and Teresa Palmer already have been cast.

    Regency, which is fully financing the picture, is planning a trilogy around the movie that also will feature extensive special effects. Shooting is scheduled to take place in Tokyo, Rome, Toronto and New York.

    Lucas Foster and Simon Kinberg are producing along with Jay Sanders. Ralph Vicinanza and Vince Gerardis will executive produce. David Goyer wrote the original script, which was rewritten by Kinberg.

    Jackson to Track Christensen in Jumper?

    Source: Moviehole
    July 24, 2006



    Snakes on a Plane star Samuel L. Jackson talked to Moviehole and revealed that his "Star Wars" co-star Hayden Christensen won't star with him in Poker Night, which Jackson says is "dead in the water," but instead in another project.

    Jackson says Christensen might be joining him in Doug Liman's "Jumper," based on the Steven Gould novel of the same name. It follows a kid from a broken home who discovers that he has the ability to teleport. In his quest for the man he believes is responsible for the death of his mother, the kid draws the attention of the National Security Agency and another youth with the same abilities. Jackson will play the NSA agent tracking the jumper, and may have ulterior motives for finding him

    "Poker Night", which was set to be directed by "Star Wars" master of swords Nick Gillard, was to star Christensen as a young rookie detective who becomes the pawn in a serial killer's vicious game, with Jackson playing his boss.


    The sci-fi thriller will be Liman's first feature helming gig since Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Tom Sturridge, Jamie Bell and Teresa Palmer already have been cast. Shooting is scheduled to take place in Tokyo, Rome, Toronto and New York.

    August 11, 2006


    It was rumored last month, and now it's official. "Star Wars" prequels star Hayden Christensen will has joined Jumper, a big-budget thriller being directed by Doug Liman (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, The Bourne Identity).

    The film's production company, Regency Enterprises, has partnered with 20th Century Fox to finance the production, which sources say is budgeted in the $100 million range.

    Christensen replaces Tom Sturridge in the lead role of David. Samuel L. Jackson, Jamie Bell and Teresa Palmer remain with the project.

    Based on the Steven Gould novel, Jumper follows a young man from a broken home who discovers that he has the ability to teleport. In his quest for the man he believes is responsible for the death of his mother, the kid draws the attention of the National Security Agency and another youth with the same abilities.

    Christensen will play the young man who can teleport. Jackson plays an NSA agent, while Bell is the jumper who shows Christensen the ropes.

    David Goyer wrote the original script, which was rewritten by Simon Kinberg. Regency and Fox hope to turn the story into a trilogy.

    This is pretty much "Sliders: The Movie".

    And I think the seriesis good enough without someone plagiarizing its plot for the sake of a movie.

    Liman's Jumper Shoots at the Colosseum
    Source: The New York Times
    December 17, 2006


    The New York Times reports that director Doug Liman and Fox got permission to shoot the sci-fi thriller Jumper, starring Hayden Christensen, Samuel L. Jackson and Rachel Bilson, at the Colosseum in Rome. Here's a clip:

    No props. No lights. Not even a video cart was permitted to touch the ground. But Mr. Liman, his actors and a small crew from the science fiction thriller "Jumper" — granted unprecedented access even to the amphitheater's labyrinthine guts, where gladiators and doomed beasts once waited — were to shoot their pivotal love scene on a stage that still belongs more to the dead than the living.

    The full article, including photos, is available here. The movie hits theaters on February 15, 2008.

    Sounds good, wonder how it's going to play out into a triology. I'm tempted to look up the books, but I don't want to spoil myself.

    Right - their teleporting abilities vary.

    Nightcrawler is short-range, while the 'Jumper' can literally go a lot further than that. The title is even suggestive of that.

    Honestly, and in addition to accusations of a 'Sliders rip-off', some people don't learn how to read.

    Interesting film, if done right and if in the appropriate style. It has potential.

    What was the other film that Bilson did?
