Super 8 Cast Pranked Abrams With Missing Script Story

The young cast of Super 8 gave director J.J. Abrams a scare by pretending the film’s top secret script was lost in a shopping mall.

The film’s star Riley Griffiths was given the task of breaking the bogus bad news to Abrams as part of an April Fools’ Day prank, and he admits he was terrified of upsetting the director.

He says, “We came up with this idea where we tell him that I lost the script in a mall in L.A. and it’sonline right now… I didn’t want to do this… I was so scared and when I go in, I look up and there’s a window above J.J’s office and I see all the boys lined up.

“I was on the verge of crying because I didn’t want to do this… I could just see the disappointment in his face.”
