You can expect more Transformers movies for the next 10 years
Following the news that a Transformers 5 is on the way along with an animated “origin story” film set on Cybertron, comes word today that you can expect a whole lot more Transformers movies in the next 10 years in addition to those. Hasbro Studios president Stephen J. Davis was the Keynote speaker at MIP Junior in Cannes and an official video from the event is now online. In the video below (via TFW2005), Davis talks more about the live-action films at the 13:35 mark.
“Well, you’re going to see a new Transformers movie coming from Hasbro and Paramount and Michael Bay and our other partners,” he says. “In fact, we just finished, as some of you may have read, just an incredible experience. We decided that we wanted to plot out the next 10 years of the Transformers franchise, so we got together in a room over a three-month period of time. Nine of some of the most creative writers I have ever worked with, shepherded by Akiva Goldsman, who many of you may know won an Academy Award for A Beautiful Mind and written a bunch of great movies. And they plotted out the next 10 years of Transformers. Similarly, we are doing the same in television and in digital. So stay tuned, Transformers 5 is on its way, and 6 and 7 and 8.”
Ant-Man scribes Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari will script the animated film and the writers room also included “The Walking Dead” and “Invincible” creator Robert Kirkman, the Iron Man writing pair of Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, “Fringe” and “Lost” scribe Jeff Pinkner, X-Men: The Last Stand and The Incredible Hulk‘s Zak Penn, Black Hawk Down scribe Ken Nolan, “Black List” scribes Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Christina Hodson, “Marvel’s Daredevil” season one showrunner Steven DeKnight and Lindsey Beer, a science major at Stanford, who has written original specs in the sci-fi and fantasy genre.
Paramount Pictures’ most recent entry in the Transformers franchise was 2014’s Transformers: Age of Extinction. Earning more than $1.1 billion at the worldwide box office, the film stars Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor. Michael Bay is expected to direct Transformers 5 again with Wahlberg starring.
