So, I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts the other day (Slice of SciFi) and they mentioned something about a new movie that’s just been put into production – ones based on a book I’d only recently read (well, it’s been maybe 6 months, but that’s recent, right?) by Steven Gould – Jumper. I adored the book, so, needles to say, I was ecstatic when I found out about the movie.
The (very basic) story of the book is:
A smart kid with a tough family life discovers that he has the ability to teleport. Empowered, he leaves home for NYC. While using his abilities to track the man he blames for the death of his mother years earlier, he draws the attention of both the NSA and a possibly nefarious guy his own age who has the same abilities and enters into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with both.
So, in an effort to share this great book and just general information about what I see to be a really cool little movie, I’ve created a site to keep those concerned up to date – jumpermovie.info.
So far on the site, I’ve gathered up some of the production details of the movie and some quotes from Gould himself off of his blog. I emailed him about the site earlier and he was gracious enough to come over and post a few updates/comments to the posts already there…
