There was a lot of entertainment news related to Transformers in today's investor conference from Hasbro. No less than 5 projects are currently in development and they were all talked about at the 1:30 mark of the conference. We reported on the Botbots TV show on Netflix, the new Animated TV show on nickelodeon and we all know there will be a third part to the War on Cybertron Trilogy show on Netflix called Kingdom.

Along with those 3 shows, Hasbro is currently making 2 feature length films at the same time and here are all the details that were given.

One film will be live action set for release in summer 2022 "with a fresh vision that will launch a new trajectory for the franchise". The director is Steven Caple Jr who directed Creed 2, Lorenzo di Bonaventura will be producing and Steven Spielberg will be one of the executive producers.

The other feature length film will be animated and that one will be directed by Josh Cooley, who directed Toy Story 4.

No. No. No. No. NO. nO. No. n0o. N0oO. NO!!! NO!!!!!!! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve had it. I’ve had it with this terrible terrible producer. He is an untalented, inconsiderate, ignorant Hollywood puppet who doesn’t know TWO SH*TS about Transformers. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, look up any interview of him, or any quote from him concerning his opinions on the transformers movies, and you’ll very soon see how much HE was the root of every transformers movie problem until the present day, I’d argue even more than Michael bay. MOST of the BS nonsense that was shoehorned into the bayverse movies was due to this idiot. There are very few people I have such little respect and so much hate for. Why? Why would they drag HIM back into the picture RIGHT When this franchise has the potential to be something good again? I hate to sound like a pessimist, but with this one simple announcement, I have momentarily lost literally all hope for any upcoming transformers films. Until this man is wiped from the face of Transformers media, I will not see a hopeful ray of light again.

Oh no, that's the worst and most unnecessary Toy Story...

I see a lot of hate for poor Lorenzo but wasn't he also the producer for Bumblebee? The best regarded Transformers film?

He and Bay were attached as Producers, from when the Movie was still supposed to be a Prequel to the previous Live Action Movie franchise and before the reshoots and new direction.
Most of the stuff that made the movie good are actually reshoots and changes included after the test screening and Paramount getting scared of another flop.
So it's unlikely that he had anything to do with why it's liked.

Producers don't really do much. Just look at Don Murphy.

She did eventually give us the very best Star wars we have ever gotten since the originals. It just took 4 years.

Producers are responsible for the financial backing and distribution of the product. That's about it. They try to attach themselves to products, not because they necessarily like them, but because they will make money. If he's on board, I suspect there is money to be made.

Not true, not in the least bit. If producers had nothing to do with the final product content wise, then there would be no such thing as a director's cut.

Looks like we're slipping back into the Dark Ages. Nice knowing you boys. Get ready for shitty human characters and excessive explosions! :-(

Oh, so di Bonaventura is back to producing live action TF films. I'm sold!



....Sold on not even watching his crap after a Sunday afternoon Football game on SYFY Channel 4 years after its initial release.

So here's his list of movies:

Constantine
FOur Brothers
Doom
Derailed
Shooter
1408
Transformers
Stardust
Imagine That
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra
Salt
Red
Transformers Dark of the Moon
The Devil Inside
Man on a Ledge
The Last Stand
GI Joe: Retaliation
Red 2
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
Transformers: Age of Extinction
Electric Slide
Deepwater Horizon
Transformers The Last Night
Kidnap
Unlocked
American Assassin
Only the Brave
The Meg
Higher Power
Replicas
Bumbleebee
Pet Sematary
The Secrets We Keep
GI Joe Origins: Snake Eyes
Infinite
The Plane

Seems to me there are a few clunkers there. Seems to me there are a few really good films on there (Constantine, Red Red 2). I think people are giving the producer way more credit than is deserved. The one constant on the TF movies besides di Bonventura- until Bumblebee, that is- was Michael Bay, who is an "eye candy" director.

"A producer is the person responsible for finding and launching a project; arranging financing; hiring writers, a director, and key members of the creative team; and overseeing all elements of pre-production, production and post-production, right up to release. A film producer is a person who oversees film production. Either employed by a production company or working independently, producers plan and coordinate various aspects of film production, such as selecting the script; coordinating writing, directing, editing; and arranging financing. "

I think the key words in there are "plan and coordinate". Do they have a say? probably. Do they have FINAL say? Probably not. Is there some responsibility? Yes. Is it all on him? No. Like I said, both Red and Red 2 were good movies. I enjoyed Constantine a lot and thought it was underrated. Do I give him credit? Partially. Do I give him more credit than the director and editors and writers? No. He HIRED them. Then they did their thing.

I think everyone is overreacting. Like it was pointed out recently, the Bumblebee movie was one of his productions and it was a thoroughly enjoyable, fun, movie, and well-regarded by the fandom. So, I suggest everyone pump the brakes a bit and wait to see what the new directors (and Hasbro) can come up with for further Transformers movies before stringing him up in a noose.

Only trying to point out that the guys has had hits and misses. A lot of peeps here automatically discounting any future movies simply because of his name. I'm pointing out that there are really good movies under his name too.
