Paramount and Hasbro Shared Cinematic Universe Writers Room: Brian K Vaughan, Nicole Perlman & More

Postby Va'al » Thu Apr 21, 2016 11:08 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
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.

I really don't like the trend right now that everything has to have a cinematic universe. I feel like this is the most unjustified one so far. It would have been fine if it was just Transformers and G.I. Joe but this just sound like its going to be a mess.
Shhhhhhh... I was never here. You never got anything from me.

Not sure how i feel about this, not only is that list of people not aw inspiring but if they are going to try and merge all those series together its going to be a train wreck. Even if this just means hasbro has full control over everything thats not really great either, we all know hasbro will screw over the fans if it means making money. Guess we'll just have to see how this pans out.

Here's hoping it'll be better than the DCEU. Of course, with 1 good TF film, 1 1/2 decent ones and 1 1/2 pieces of poo, they're already better than DC's track record of 1/2 a good movie.

Come at me, DC fanboys and girls! :-D

I agree. The very fact that DC and Hasbro are pushing forward into making all their movies connected somehow, destroys the uniqueness of the cinematic universe. When Marvel did it, it was unique and interesting, but since companies and studios are scared of losing creative ways to earn more revenue, they copy their competitiors, which is vanity, pointless, and downright unnecessary. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was a horrible clutter of messes and so will be Hasbro's potential, upcoming motion pictures. They are drinking the hard liquor before having a taste of the regular, if that makes sense. >:oP

Press Release: Paramount Pictures and Hasbro Unveil Top Talent Writers Room

Here's an official press release we received a few minutes ago from Hasbro regarding their shared cinematic universe:

PARAMOUNT PICTURES AND HASBRO TAP AWARD-WINNING GROUP OF WRITERS TO CREATE CROSS-PROPERTY FILM UNIVERSE

WRITERS ROOM LEAD BY OSCAR WINNER AKIVA GOLDSMAN WILL DEVELOP STORIES FOR HASBRO BRANDS G.I. JOE, MICRONAUTS, VISIONARIES, M.A.S.K. AND ROM

HOLLYWOOD, CA (April 21, 2016) - Paramount Pictures and Hasbro, Inc. today unveiled its top talent writers room which will have responsibility for developing Hasbro's cross-property interconnected onscreen universe featuring the brands G.I. Joe, Micronauts, Visionaries, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) and ROM. This group includes some of the most notable creative talent in Hollywood, including Academy Award Winner Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), who will have responsibility for overseeing the writers room on behalf of Hasbro and Paramount as well as serving as Executive Producer for all of the films. Joining Goldsman will be Lindsey Beer (Wizard of Oz, Kingkiller Chronicle), Pulitzer Prize Winner Michael Chabon (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay), Cheo Coker (Luke Cage, Ray Donovan), Joe Robert Cole (Black Panther, People vs. OJ), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain Marvel), Jeff Pinkner (Lost, The Dark Tower), Nicole Riegel (Soldier Girls), Geneva Robertson (Atlantis, Tomb Raider) and Brian K Vaughan (Under the Dome, Lost).

Allspark Pictures, Hasbro's film label, plans to produce films based on this cross-property universe, with Brian Goldner (Chairman, President and CEO, Hasbro) and Stephen Davis (Executive Vice President and Chief Content Officer, Hasbro) serving as Producers, and Josh Feldman (Co-Head of Storytelling, Hasbro) as Co-Executive Producer. Hasbro will also deploy in the room an unprecedented team of its top artists and designers to assist Goldsman and the writers to visualize this all-new cinematic universe.

"Paramount and Hasbro have partnered on many successful films in the past, including the 'TRANSFORMERS' and 'G.I. JOE,' franchises," said Brad Grey, Chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures. "Bringing together a writers room of this caliber is a bold step for our partnership, and one that we believe is critical for building these brands into new, successful franchises for the future."

"Together with Paramount, we have assembled a team of incredibly talented creative minds and storytellers to continue to help tell the rich history and narrative behind this interconnected cinematic universe, and we are thrilled to be working with Akiva Goldsman again to guide this process," said Brian Goldner. "We are also excited to partner with Paramount to produce the films, as we've had a strong and collaborative partnership since our first Transformers movie in 2007."

The Paramount and Hasbro partnership is responsible for the worldwide blockbuster success of the "TRANSFORMERS" franchise, which has earned $3.8 billion to-date, and whose films, directed by Michael Bay, are amongst the highest grossing movies of all time; and the "G.I. JOE" franchise, which have earned more than $675 million worldwide.

I am probably the biggest Batman fan on this site and I fully agree with you. I am surprised the DC fanboys arent more angry than they are, the way Zack Snyder handles those properties is far worse than Michael Bay. At least Michael Bay doesnt use as noticeable a colour filter.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Hell yeah that counts. But I was referring more to how everything is tinted dark blue/grey in the DC live action movies. At least things arent too dark in the Bay films. The recent outings had the bots out in the daylight and the latest film had that gorgeous Utah scene where you could actually follow who was who and such as Optimus was rounding up his crew.

Here is a question, has anyone since Marvel been able to make a film universe?

There is the universal monster universe that hasnt accomplished anything yet.

There is the DC film universe, same thing there.

The TF film universe that we have yet to see.

The Sony Siderman universe which I think has been cancelled (maybe)

And now the combined Hasbro universe.

Yeah, I think nobody but Marvel has been able to do it yet.

;)^ Forgot that one. But it has yet to be seen though. Rogue One is coming out this year. The last attempt at a wide release spinoff was the Clone Wars movie and it didnt fare that well (the show did though).

I don't think it's a fair question. Marvel laid the ground work. Someone has to come up with the reverse by doing a combined universe, and then spin-offs (which I guess is what Star Wars is doing, as well as Transformers). However, no one has proven had a chance to prove a successful formula like Marvel (though financially you could argue that DC has done or is doing it when you look at their box office numbers compared to early Marvel box office numbers).

Time will tell. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially the amazing Netflix shows (specifically Jessica Jones) :D

I was lookinga at things mainly post Marvel Cinematic Uiverse, where the whole trend took traction. Because or else, there is also Doctor Who and other things I am probably not thinking of.

I don't think we're into "post" Marvel Cinematic Universe. There's really only been 1 movie released outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that would qualify as trying to capitalize on what Marvel has done, which is Superman vs Batman: Dawn of Justice. I think we need at least a couple of movies to be released for each franchise before we can claim whether or not one has been a success or not.

That's not entirely true. 2014's Dracula Untold was meant to be the beginning of a new Universal Monsters Universe, and the same year's new Godzilla was the beginning of a Godzilla/King Kong shared universe, which continues in next year's Kong: Skull Island. Speaking of which, the classic Toho Godzilla movies qualify as a shared universe rather than just a bunch of sequels, because Mothra has appeared in her own movies outside of the big G's flicks.

Bringing this back to topic, though, I just don't think all these radically different franchises will mesh well in one universe, unless they reboot Transformers and GI Joe to make references to each other's events and future films all reference and explain each other's place. I don't see it as likely, and Hasbro would be better served just giving each franchise its own unconnected movie (if they absolutely must).

There's really only been 1 movie released outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that would qualify as trying to capitalize on what Marvel has done, which is Superman vs Batman: Dawn of Justice. I think we need at least a couple of movies to be released for each franchise before we can claim whether or not one has been a success or not.

That's not entirely true. 2014's Dracula Untold was meant to be the beginning of a new Universal Monsters Universe, and the same year's new Godzilla was the beginning of a Godzilla/King Kong shared universe, which continues in next year's Kong: Skull Island. Speaking of which, the classic Toho Godzilla movies qualify as a shared universe rather than just a bunch of sequels, because Mothra has appeared in her own movies outside of the big G's flicks.


I should have further clarified what I meant. Dawn of Justice is the only 2nd parter. Both examples you provided were the "first" in a franchise, meaning it's too early to judge how those particular Cinematic Universes are panning out. All of these franchises each need a few movies under their belt to properly compare their successes with each other and to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As expected, the main property that sticks out is one not on the list:

WHERE THE #@&% IS INHUMANOIDS?!?!?

Maybe it was just all the Hector Ramirez, but I think of that cartoon as the glue holding the old Sunbow universe together. Plenty of G.I.Joe references, and the title characters could duke it out with TFs if there'd ever been a full crossover. Is there evidence that the first Pretenders were created with that in mind? Skullgrin's shell strikes me as having a possible connection to D'Compose.

Speaking of whom, yes, there was an Inhumanoid whose signature power was creating zombies! Considering how huge zombies are right now, in both mature and children's fare, why the heck is Hasbro letting this franchise (which they still fully own, correct?) sit totally forgotten? Its city-smashing monsters would be good competition for the Kong-zillerverse someone mentioned, as well as Pacific Rim or any other American stab at kaiju, and would fit with the TF/Joe movies easier than any on this list, with one exception:

...M.A.S.K. That toyline was such a good fusion of TF and Joe elements that it's a shame Kenner was Hasbro's competition at the time; they could've made for a way better crossover than "G.I. Joe and the Transformers". In fact, RAAT designing transforming vehicles based on the Autobots they captured with Circuit Breaker's help would've made more sense than that attack vehicle they used against the Throttlebots later on. If AofE isn't the last the Bayniverse has seen of human organizations hunting down TFs, then illusion could be ultimate weapon this new think-tank has up its sleeve.
