Creating a glorious union of the minds for fanboys, "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau has signed on to direct a new NBC pilot produced by J.J. Abrams and written by "Supernatural" creator Eric Kripke.
As noted by Deadline.com
, Favreau has directed comedy pilots in the past, but "Revolution" will be his first drama pilot.
"Revolution" is set against a post-apocalyptic landscape in which all forms of energy -- minute potential and kinetic, we assume -- have ceased to exist.
Favreau, who last directed "Cowboys & Aliens," also co-wrote a CBS comedy pilot which may or may not shoot as part of this development season.
