Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter we now have information regarding a lawsuit against Paramount studios regarding Wulong Karst Tourism, which reportedly paid $750,000 for it's logo to be featured in the film but in the end was not put in. We have quoted the article below for you to read:
Paramount Pictures has been hit with a $27.7 million (180 million yuan) lawsuit in China over a product placement that was allegedly omitted from Transformers: Age of Extinction.
Wulong Karst Tourism, a state-backed travel company, argued Tuesday in local court that Paramount Pictures and China Movie Channel, the Chinese co-producer of Transformers 4, failed to fulfill their obligations as part of a product placement deal signed in 2013, according to Chongqing Morning Post.
The case was accepted by a court in Chongqing city in 2014 and is now finally being heard.
Wulong Karst Tourism runs a resort in China's southern Wulong county, an area famous for its eroded limestone cliffs, a magnificent landscape known as "karst." Portions of Age of Extinction were shot in Wulong Karst National Park, and the tour company says its deal with Paramount was for a logo, featuring the Chinese characters “China Wulong,” to be displayed in the finished film, so Chinese audiences would know where the film was shot. The company says it paid nearly $750,000 (4.8 million yuan) before production began in exchange for the promotion.
According to local press, the defendants — Paramount and China Movie Channel — conceded that the logo didn't make it into the finished film, but said they took pains to make up for it. Michael Bay is said to have shot a short advertisement for the resort, and the Transformers production team left sets and props on the resort property, which Wulong Karst Tourism could leverage as a tourist attraction.
The Chongqing court has yet to deliver a verdict.
The Transformers 4 shoot in greater China was not without other incident. During a day of shooting in Hong Kong in 2013, Bay was attacked by two local thugs who had tried to extort the shoot for "protection money" and been rebuffed. One of the assailants allegedly came after Bay using a piece of an air conditioner as a weapon. The director managed to escape unscathed, and the attackers were subdued by security and arrested.
Transformers 4 was a tremendous hit in China, grossing $320 million.
Entertainment news site, The Wrap, has some new potential casting info for the upcoming Transformers 5 film:
After successfully launching his own NBC sitcom “The Carmichael Show,” comedian Jerrod Carmichael is in talks to join Mark Wahlberg in Paramount’s “Transformers 5,” multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.
You may have also seen him in the 2014 movie Neighbors, which is where the still below comes from.
While the results of the Paramount writers' room for the Transformers live action movies series came out a fair while ago, we now have - via The Hollywood Reporter - updated news of the even wider, shared Hasbro cinematic universe, featuring the likes of ROM the Spaceknight, Micronauts, GI Joe, MASK and Visionaries. Some seriously big names are involved too, as you can see below - check them out, and head here for the whole piece!
Hasbro’s cinematic universe has assembled its writers room, with a Pulitzer Prize winner, an Eisner-winning comic book author and Marvel Studios scribes among those who will be clacking the keyboard.
Michael Chabon, who wrote the novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay and worked on Spider-Man 2; Brian K. Vaughan, the creator of seminal comic works Y: The Last Man and Saga and showrunner of Under the Dome; and Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain Marvel co-writer Nicole Perlman, will help develop a plan for the creation of an interconnected onscreen universe featuring Hasbro’s G.I. Joe, Micronauts, Visionaries, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) and ROM brands.
Also in the group are:
► Lindsey Beer, who was just hired to adapt Kingkiller Chronicle for Lionsgate
► Cheo Coker, showrunner of Marvel’s Netflix show Luke Cage
► John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the comedy writing team who penned Spider-Man: Homecoming
► Joe Robert Cole (a writer on People vs. OJ Simpson who is also writing Black Panther for Marvel)
► Jeff Pinkner, who wrote the adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower)
► Nicole Riegel (writer behind the Blacklist script Dogfight)
► Geneva Robertson (one of the writers of new Tomb Raider movie project).
Akiva Goldsman, who won an Oscar for A Beautiful Mind, will oversee the writers room on behalf of Hasbro and Paramount as well as serving as executive producer for all of the films. He is already serving in a similar capacity for Hasbro’s Transformers writers room and the new session is meant to build on its successful fruits and established road map.

Here is an interesting post on Instagram from DJ/producer Diplo.
"Big meeting about transformers 6 transformers vs major lazer #michealbae"
Could this mean that Major Lazer is going to produce the soundtrack for The Transformers 6 movie? For the Transformers fans that are unaware of who Major Lazer is, they are an American electronic music group of DJ/producers Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire. Some of their musical sytles includes electronic, reggaeton, house, mixing EDM with reggae, and moombahton genres. Which would work perfectly with Micheal Bay's Transformers Movies. This is certainly only speculations right now as of course this early in the stage things can fall through so please treat this as a rumour for now until we get an official announcement.

In a little bit of news, which probably only counts as trivia at this stage, Collider had a quick chat at SXSW with Robert Kirkman, co-creator of The Walking Dead comics series among other things, about his involvement with the Goldsman-led Transformers writers room - which he only attended for a day, as personal matters took priority. See more below, including the embedded video!
As you can see in the video, Kirkman says that he loves Transformers, and became a part of the writing team after a casual lunch wth di Bonaventura, who optioned his comic Invincible (the comic adaption list that Perri mentions in the video is Dave Trumbore’s 10 Comic Books That Need an R-Rated Adaptation). Still, though he’s no longer a part of the project (which is a bummer because it seems insane and his involvement made it seem somehow less so), he says,
“I have heard from the people that are in that room there are a lot of amazing Transformers things coming, and I’m very happy as a fan to see what comes from that.”
