J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Has Added Six New Projects To Their Film Slate
J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot production company has recently picked up six new film projects that they will be producing and we have some details to share with you regarding them.
Abrams is currently looking for a new home at a studio that will pretty much give him the freedom to do and make whatever the hell he wants. It makes sense that he’d be adding a bunch of new projects to his slate that will make the deal more lucrative.
Variety offers some details on these projects and talent involved.
Some of the other filmmakers involved with these new film projects include Hip-Hop artist Bobby Hall a.k.a. Logic, along with “Hell Fest writer Blair Butler, The Good Place executive producer Megan Amram, The Good Time Girls director Courtney Hoffman, Ben Shiffrin, writing team Dylan Meyer and Peter Glanz, and first-time director Stan Grube, who had previously served as an editor on the Bad Robot sci-fi thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane.”
As for the projects that these people will be working on for Bad Robot, there’s the following:
Everything Must Go will be co-written by Blackish scribe Lisa McQuillan and Hall and he will also star in the film, which is described as “Clerks for a new generation.”
The Steps, “which is described as a twist on the possession genre.” That film in being written by Butler and based on an original idea from Grube.
There’s also an “untitled female-driven horror allegory” that comes from Amram, who will also write the script.
The Seven Sisters of Scott County, an original movie that’s set “in the moonshine-running time period”. Hoffman will write and direct the film.
Then there’s an untitled “contained time travel movie” that will be written by Shiffrin.
Finally there’s a sci-fi romance called Only the Lonely, which directed by Grube and co-written by Meyer and Glanz.
Only time will tell if any of these film will turn out to be Cloverfield movies. If we’re lucky, none of them will be.
