J.J. AbramsThe sleepy little steel town of Weirton, West Virgina, is about to get a big dose of Hollywood glamour.

According to Production Weekly, director J.J. Abrams and his cast and crew for the super-secret film, 'Super 8,' will move into the hamlet -- which is nestled among the hills of the Ohio River Valley -- later next month.

Details on the sci-fi film, which is being produced by Abrams' boyhood idol, Steven Spielberg, have been kept very close to the vest. (We don't even have an inkling as to who's set to star.) But there have been rumors that it's an homage to Spielberg's early days when Super 8 MM film was all the rage, and a trailer for the flick did debut back in May when 'Iron Man 2' hit theaters.
