Harrison Ford

Harrison Ford is giving his Indiana Jones adventures a rest long enough to star in J.J. Abrams' latest project, Morning Glory.

Far from Abrams' signature thrillers, Glory is a comedy about an ailing morning news show in chaos. Rachel McAdams is in talks to sign on as an aspiring producer who tries to temper the storm of feuding anchors and set the show straight. Ford will play one of the newsmen in question.

Roger Mitchell (Notting Hill) will direct the film, while Abrams and fellow Lost and Fringe chief Bryan Burk are producing.

How does Abrams' next venture sound?
