Paramount Pictures has extended its overall deal with J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Prods., keeping the company on the lot through 2013.

Deal comes as the studio moves into promotional warp speed for the May 8 release of STAR TREK, which Abrams directed and produced.

Abrams and longtime producing partner Bryan Burk set the company at Paramount in July 2006.

Bad Robot’s first release was CLOVERFIELD, which grossed $170 million worldwide. STAR TREK is the company’s second film; Bad Robot begins production in June on Harrison Ford-Rachel McAdams starrer MORNING GLORY, to be directed by Roger Michell for release in 2010.
