JJ Abrams has spoken of his enjoyment at working with Steven Spielberg on Super 8.

The iconic director has produced Abram's sci-fi film, something that made Abrams anxious at first, as Spielberg was his childhood idol.

He told The Hollywood Reporter: "Working with Steven Spielberg was a dream, and I was kind of nervous about it because he was like a hero of mine since I was a kid."

Once the nerves wore off, though, the Star Trek director was able to enjoy the experience to the maximum.

He continued: "I can only say that it was surreal and wonderful and a real privilege."

Super 8 is released on August 5.
