The “first look” agreement between J.J. AbramsBad 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.

  1. Glad to know people here will have something to bitch and moan about for the next 3-1/2 years.

  2. Every time I watch the new movies and then turn around and watch reruns of DS9, it reminds me of just how far Star Trek has fallen. 🙁

  3. That studio press release should have finished with “Please please please make another Mission Impossible movie.”

  4. The headline I’m anxiously awaiting: “Bad Robot announces NIGHTBEAST II for next Paramount blockbuster!” 😉

  5. Great to see that J.J.’s company will be around to do more movies with Paramount (he should be directing the next Star Trek movie too.) Wish that he could get a TV show (live action, or even better, animated) off of the ground at CBS, Nickelodeon, or Showtime as well.

    To the naysayers, I say, get a life.
