Paramount Extends First Look with J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot

March 26, 2009

J.J. Abrams

Paramount Pictures today announced an extension of its agreement with J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions to run through 2013. This continues the first-look relationship originally started with Abrams and long-time colleague, producer Bryan Burk, in July of 2006. "Today's announcement is meaningful to me in many ways," said Brad Grey, Chairman and CEO, Paramount Pictures Corporation. "Bad Robot was one of the first deals we made to help rebuild the studio. J.J. has since become part of the fabric of Paramount and we look forward to continuing our fruitful creative collaboration for many years to come."

Bad Robot and Paramount first collaborated on the release of Cloverfield in January of 2008. As we all know, up next is Star Trek this summer. Production on Morning Glory will begin in June, and we can expect to hear plenty more announcements over the next few months. "Bad Robot has had an incredibly fun and productive collaboration with Paramount," added Abrams. "We are all so grateful for their amazing support and creative team, and feel like we're just getting started. We are thrilled that we get to stay right where we are." You know you're doing things right when the experience is both productive and fun.

    Cloverfield was a terrible movie, IMO. And as far as J.J Abrams is concerned, his body of work isn't anything special. There's far more talented directors and better production companies out there who deserve this kind of position.

    Everything about Cloverfield was bloody brilliant. EVERYTHING! I use it in class all the time.
