JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot officially signs up with Warner Bros

September 13th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Well, it’s a done deal as JJ Abrams and his Bad Robot production company just signed a deal with Warner Bros.

Abrams, best known for Lost and Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been hovering between Disney, Apple and Comcast but has finally settled at the WB.

This means that his production company Bad Robot will now make movies, shows, games and other entertainment content for the company between now and 2024 and all for a cool $500 million (plus bonuses).

I’d also imagine this will give Abrams access to the DC catalogue as it’s known that he’s wanted to make Superman and Green Lantern movies for a long time now.

Here’s the official statement from WarnerMedia:

“We are extremely excited about the potential to deliver remarkable and memorable stories and characters across multiple platforms to audiences around the world. J.J., Katie and all of Bad Robot bring extraordinary vision, exquisite filmmaking, and exemplary industry leadership to this endeavor and our company. Across all forms of content, we are uniquely positioned to offer our creative partners a multitude of platforms to realize their artistic goals and ambitions, and to ensure that their stories have the best possible opportunity to connect with the right audience.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
