Paramount takes on script from J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot

Posted on

Paramount has struck a deal for $2 million+ for an untitled pitch from Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada) and Simon Kinberg (X-Men: The Last Stand), Variety reports. J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk will produce for Bad Robot, which has a first-look deal with Paramount. The plot is still under wraps, but the unlikely writing team came together after working on a rewrite of Date Night. “These two writers couldn’t be more different. The genres they write seem almost diametrically opposed,” Abrams told Variety. “But they came to Bad Robot with a pitch that got us salivating.”
