Via entertainment media website Deadline, we have some news regarding the Paramount project for Transformers 5 and the expanded universe led by Akiva Goldsman - who appears to have been moved from the direct writing of the script for the next movie, and will be heading a similar project for the G.I. Joe and Micronauts franchises instead. Read more on this below, and head here for the full story!

After their Akiva Goldsman-led Writers Room experiment led to at least three movie ideas to extend Transformers, Hasbro and Paramount have set Goldsman to supervise a Writers Room for their G.I. Joe movie series. And they will go the same route with Goldsman to draft ideas for the Hasbro property Micronauts, with Goldsman supervising that as well.

This change of duties means Goldsman will supervise but won’t write the next Transformers installment. Paramount now is negotiating with Writers Room participants Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man) and Black Hawk Down scribe Ken Nolan to write the script together. That course change was cemented by Paramount, Hasbro, Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg and producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Don Murphy.

Your saying this like anyone dropped out.



If you actually stop being snarky and read the post Goldsman is just trading places with some better writers while he helps with Gi Joe.



Seriously it's good someone better then him is writing 5.

As announced in the investors meeting and webcast, Paramount and Hasbro are already reaping the fruits of the writers' room production, and have not one but three new movie releases lined up for the coming years! Hasbro reached out directly with the full information, which you can find below. What do you make of the continuation of the series, and the Bumblebee spin-off?

We are reaching out today to share some exciting Transformers movie news from Hasbro’s Allspark Pictures and Paramount. At Hasbro’s Analyst Presentation this morning during Toy Fair, Hasbro Chairman, President and CEO Brian Goldner announced new details about the next three films in the multi-billion dollar global franchise.

In partnership with Paramount, the writers’ room assembled by Hasbro’s Allspark pictures has created several exciting new Transformers stories and is beginning development on the next three theatrical films.


· In 2017, Michael Bay will direct the next chapter of the Transformers films, with Mark Wahlberg returning to star. That film is slated for release on June 23.


· On June 8, 2018, a new film is being developed which will tell the never before heard story of Bumblebee, one of the most beloved characters from Hasbro’s Transformers universe.


· A third new film will continue the story of Hasbro’s iconic franchise which is scheduled for release on June 28, 2019.

oh christ !

is there seriously demand for a bumblebee movie ?

i mean Fking bumblebee !

if your gonna concentrate on on origin story of one of the main characters surely to GOD its prime !

i'll be hnonest i was having a hard enough time going to the regular films now as they continually disapoint on everything past the effects front.

theres got to be some sort of mad karma going on that the films seem to be getting worse inversely porportional to the rise in quality of the comics.

:D :D :D

i wont condemn it completely and will wait to see what theyre selling us in the trailers but TBH im first reponse upon hearing this was "God no ".

Watch you guys finally get a movie set entirely on Cybertron with no humans, but it's the Bumblebee movie. :P

Though, would it just be retelling the events of the Movie Prequel, or would they write a new "How Bee lost his voice" backstory? :-?

aye but Bay would never do a no human's movie! he hasn't the last 4 times so why would he now?

& it doesn't matter who writes the story! coz if Bay's in charge, he'll just want things done HIS way.

& YES! there's nothing to suggest at this time that Bay'll be in charge of those OTHER movies! but as long as they keep on throwing money at it, he'll keep on coming back to the directors chair.

i'd love a cybertron only film as much as the next guy.

but the problem with the movies set on earth isnt that humans are in it. its that humans are the focus of the films on earth, when they really should be just the foil to get to the transformery goodness.

if hasbro did a film using IDWs "infiltration" and "escalation" trades as inspiration it'd kick arse.

"infiltration" went ALONG way to establishing megatron as a bad ass in the IDW universe, used intrigue, drama, had some great quips/banter , and gave the impression of a larger TF universe out there without the need to actually SEE it, and did it all with relatively few "set" peices and a human cast that complimented the TF action.

it'd probably cost half of what age of extiction did to do it.

i mean jesus who DOESNT want to see that made just to see that "take your punishment like a decepticon" line !

:D
