Hey, Dustin Lance Black, what's shakin'? Deadline reports that the Milk and J. Edgar scribe has been set to script disaster movie Earthquake for producer J.J. Abrams, and no, it's not a remake of the Charlton Heston film, nor is it the other earthquake movie, San Andreas 3D, which recently hired screenwriter Carlton Cuse (who executive produced Lost with ... J.J. Abrams). Got all that?
