J.J. Abrams Accused Of Stealing Warner Bros. Money?
To be honest, we don’t see how anyone could say that J.J. Abrams stole money. He made a deal with the studio and things didn’t work out. There is no difference when an athlete gets hurt on the field and is out for the season. Just like the NFL organization, the studio still pays out all monies owed. Get more on J.J. Abrams and Warner Bros…
CelebnMovies247.com is now hearing J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot production company deal with WarnerMedia produced nothing and has gotten away with millions.
In September 2019, it was announced that J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot production company had entered into a massive development deal with WarnerMedia, which was reported to be worth a whopping $250 million, if not a whole lot more.
Eyebrows were raised at the time, but the filmmaker and his cohorts had a penchant for delivering critical and commercial success on screens both big and small through their involvement in such brands as Star Wars, Star Trek, Mission: Impossible, the Cloverfield franchise, Lost, Fringe, Person of Interest, and plenty more besides.
However, fast forward three years, and Abrams has delivered pretty much nothing. Warner Bros. haven’t released any features bearing the Bad Robot branding, while the only episodic venture to emerge was Lovecraft Country, which found itself canceled after a single (albeit hugely popular) season.
Now that Abrams’ Madame X and Constantine shows have been scrapped, they’ve joined Batman: Caped Crusader and Demimonde on the discard pile, with the future of Duster, Justice League Dark, Zatanna, and the Superman reboot being developed alongside Ta-Nehisi Coates now under intense scrutiny. In fact, fans have been absolutely roasting The Force Awakens and The Rise of Skywalker director online, for effectively taking WB’s money and doing the square root of nothing with it.
Abrams stole $500M from WB and did nothing ? https://t.co/haqvLxGxN8

JJ Abrams got paid $250 million by wb to make dc stuff and he’s made absolutely nothing so far and wb cans his Constantine series for hbo max but green lights a sequel for a 17 year old Constantine movie with mixed reception with an actor that is currently too old for the role?

New CEO David Zaslav has been wielding the axe with reckless abandon, and we’ve heard reports in the recent past that the recently-installed regime haven’t exactly been thrilled by the severe dearth of Bad Robot output, so we’ll be very curious to see if the bossman tries to find a way to get out of the deal.
Do you think that J.J. Abrams truly stole money from Warner Bros.?
