‘Jumper’ premiere party hops

Rachel Bilson, Samuel L. Jackson attend bash

During the after-party for the premiere of “Jumper” on Monday, helmer Doug Liman jumped right in to talk about his hope for a sequel.

“The canvas was so big that I couldn’t get everything I wanted into the movie,” he said of the film, based on the sci-fi novel by Steven Gould. “The second novel (“Reflex”) is actually my favorite.”

Asked what attracted him to pic’s star Hayden Christensen, Liman immediately replied, “His performance in ‘Shattered Glass.’ ”

The soiree at Strata, also saw film’s Rachel Bilson, Samuel L. Jackson and Jamie Bell as well as Fox’s Tom Rothman and Jim Gianopulos.

While Rothman was cautious about the film’s franchise prospects; “let’s see how well this one does, first.” He did observe that Liman’s skills lent themselves well to the project. “Doug does very sharp genre films, and that’s what this is.”
