The “first look” agreement between J.J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot Productions and Paramount has been extended.
A “first look” agreement means that one of the parties in the deal has the right to see and possibly bid on a project first, before it is shown or offered to others.
The “first look” deal with Bad Robot has been extended through July 2018.
“Through unrivaled imagination, talent and skill, J.J. has consistently entertained audiences around the world with his unique and creative approach to storytelling,” said Brad Grey, chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures. “Paramount takes an incredible amount of pride in our longtime partnership with J.J. and the entire Bad Robot team, and we look forward to being their home for many more years to come.”
“I am so grateful to Brad Grey and all of Paramount for giving Bad Robot such a supportive, creative, and collaborative home,” said Abrams. “The whole Bad Robot Team looks forward to the coming years with our most excellent partners.”
The next Trek movie will be produced by Bad Robot.
