Hey, J.J. Abrams has finally found some work! The guy behind Alias, Lost, Mission: Impossible 3 and dozens of other projects is attached to direct The Good Sailor, a Universal Pictures drama revolving around the 1945 sinking of the USS Indianapolis, according to The Hollywood Reporter. ABC, meanwhile, has greenlit another Abrams drama pilot, Pros and Cons. This one centers around five ex-cons who end up working with the government.
