According to Deadline.com, "DreamWorks Animation is deeply engaged in two potentially game changing negotiations that could transform the company — including one with Hasbro to forge a family entertainment powerhouse to be called DreamWorks-Hasbro. The other talks are with Hearst to turn DWA's AwesomenessTV into a joint venture."
DreamWorks' Jeffrey Katzenberg would become chairman of the combined operation, the website says.
After making it clear he will not be directing the next “Transformers” pic, Michael Bay may have found a project that doesn’t involve larger-than-life robots.
Bay said in August that while the next “Transformers” is already dated, he would not be returning to direct, and while this film will not feature the same elements, it still fits into his wheelhouse of action-heavy material
Bay said he believes he'll hand directing duties on Transformers 5 over to someone else so he can work on other projects, such as a documentary about elephant poaching. "There's kind of a new chapter, a new direction in movies I want to make," said Bay, who's helmed all four live-action Transformers flicks. "I have a lot of stories to tell. And it's about flexing new muscles."
Whilst scanning through the transformers at work today, I scanned the AOE leaders and found the 2 Megatrons to be crossed with the movie leaders and a listing for an Ultra Magnus.

So everyone, tomorrow at the Tomy booth at Tokyo Toy Show 2014 "Let's Say Go!"
The Angels are invading. Breaking a long silence, the mysterious life-forms known as the Angels suddenly appear. The weapons the UN forces gather together in retaliation can't even scratch them. In the end, they turn to the secret agency, NERV, to manage the anti-Angel strategy.
With Neo-Tokyo 3 in their sights, the Angels slowly advance upon the city...but suddenly a spaceship comes hurtling down from the sky above the Angels: the Sky Lynx! Out of the ship emerges warriors of the far-off planet Cybertron. They've come to investigate after noticing an unusual energy reading.
"We can't let a disaster like the Second Impact occur on this planet."
"What?! What are these monsters?!"
The shocked Cybertron convoy sets its sights on an enemy much bigger than themselves.
TRA BOT SHOTS ROM THE SPACE KNIGHT A2587
So, there are currently three trademarks Hasbro has applied for. The first is for comic books and was granted in April 2013. They've already used the first of their five possible extensions to use it in commerce (i.e. publish a ROM comic book). Extensions are required every six months if Hasbro doesn't have proof of use. Five extensions give them three years to do so.
The second trademark is for "toy action figures and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms," which leads to the already existing rumor that Hasbro is going to make Rom part of the Transformers toy line. It, too, was granted in April 2013 and has had one extension filed against it.
The final trademark is for "entertainment services, namely an on-going animated television series for children." This one was only granted in June 2013 and, because I've gotten lazy, is new to me. It would seem to contradict Hasbro making Rom part of the Transformers, unless such a TV series would be a spin-off of Transformers: Prime or something. The first extension was just granted last month.
-We fade in. We're in space. Calm as it can be. Before we know it, literally dozens of battle ships are approaching as what to be seen in the distance... EARTH.
In the midst of all this, we hear a V.O.
-A large battle ship, bigger than the others, hovers over earth.
"You've been on Earth long enough to hear the saying, you can run but you can't hide"
-A LARGE BADASS looking robot (Lockdown?) exits the ship. He stares down Earth from above before these jet-type things come from his back and jumps off, falling down towards Earth at a rapid speed
-Cut to the robot landing on Earth. Crashing into the concrete. So hard that it creates a shock wave miles ahead. The concrete cracks and splits all the way to a farm, where a gang of autobots are surrounding Cade, Tessa, and Shane.
-Optimus looks at the ground, than ahead...
"They have arrived"
-Lockdown, and his badass ship behind him, walks towards Lockdown.
-Optimus tells an autobot to get the three out of here (Cade, Shane, and Tessa), and the autobot tuns into a race car.
-Lockdown face turns into a gun and he shoots it at Optimus.
-Optimus goes down and...
-Cut to the Paramount pictures logo
*Note, that is all like the first 37 seconds*
-We pan over the city of Chicago, where several posters showing the discrimination towards Transformers are displayed in quick flashes. We hear a voice-over, similar to Kelsey Grammar
"We always knew they would return... We just never knew when"
-Cut to facility where hundreds of transformers are being manufactured.
"And they couldn't have picked a better time"
-A title smashes onto screen, "THIS SUMMER"
-We see a shot of Cade face to face with Harold Attinger, (Kelsey Grammar)
Cade-"What do you plan to do?"
-Cut to several Transformers looking beat, weakened, and or destroyed.
"Give them a blessing... An ending to their ever lasting struggles..."
-Cut back to Cade and Harold face to face. Harold, without hesitation, without blinking, he says in the most calm, disturbing voice;
-A tile smashes on the screen "Prepare Yourself"
-This is where the montage of awesome stuff happens. Although my brother didn't give me every single detail, here are the highlights (In order)
• Cade, Tessa, and Shane are all running from a huge battle taking place behind them
• Smash title "For Extinction"
• A decepticon corners Tessa nears a car where he proceeds to pick her up. Following that is Cade yelling "Tessa!!"
• A bunch of helicopters are chasing after the car we saw Cade, Tessa, and Shane get in earlier in the trailer. But... a huge decepticon rises from the ocean/lake next to the highway, and throws a large abandon ship onto the highway causing bridges to collapse.
• Bumblebee burst through a building, literally, and retrieves Cade and Shane while sliding down the other side of the building.
• A shot of Cade holding this cybertonian artifact. (Can't describe it, but it's really gnarly looking and it's described as being a "compass" type thing)
Cade says something like "This has to lead to something"
-Cut to black. We hear a voice-over from OP
"It can't be"
-We cut to OP inside this cybernetic, futuristic cave type things. We fade in and out but then we the picture stand still. OP looks down and sees about 5 HUGE looking autobots.
-Flashes of the 5 autobots awakening... and transforming... and literally TOWERING over OP. (Think Kevin Hart next to Yao Ming)
-We cut to black and we hear a growling, raspy, ROAR! Grimlock baby.
-And now the money shot. We see a bunch of traffic on the main street of Hong Kong. A sort of bump is heard. It grows louder and louder. People exit their taxis and cars. They look behind them. The bump grows louder. So loud and strong that cars are subtlety jumping and people are rocking. People look... They start to scream... They run away...
IN THE DISTANCE, GRIMLOCK (RODE ON BY OPTIMUS), STRAFE (RODE ON BY BUMBLEBEE), SLAG, SLUDGE, AND SNARL, CAUSING A STAMPEDE AND CHARGING TOWARDS THE CAMERA (Minus Strafe who's flying).
-BAM. Cut to the title
