From the same source as the last big piece of news for the Paramount Transformers franchise, Deadline, we have a very rumorous rumour, and please take it as such until there is any confirmation whatsoever. It appears that the current writers (post-Edgar Wright) for Marvel's upcoming Ant-Man movie, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, have joined the writers' room for the expanded universe - and may be behind a prequel project by the name of Transformers One - set on Cybertron. Read more here or below, and sound off your speculations on this hearsay piece of information!

Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari, who spent half a year doing the production rewriting on Marvel’s Ant-Man, have become the latest to join the Writer’s Room that Paramount Pictures and director Michael Bay have organized to hatch sequels, prequels and spinoffs on their billion dollar Transformers franchise. I’m hearing that one of the ideas in the works has a working title of Transformers One, and that it is more or less an origins story that takes place on Cybertron, the planet where the good guy and bad guy robots hail from. Those talks originated with rights holder Hasbro. I’d also heard that this might be an animated feature, but that Barrer & Ferrari are also going to the writer’s room with the expectation they’ll write a live action Transformers movie, as well. Paramount insiders said that they haven’t gotten that far on the specific projects, but I am told this is the plan. A Cybertron movie sounds like fertile ground for a feature, to me.

Well I'm sure it'll conflict with the prequel comics rendering them in different universes. >:oP

If it's a prequel they should call it Zero, not One.

I have to say I'm not too excited t get a prequel on Cybertron for this universe. I'm also not interested in the aligned universe so far with Robots in Disguise, I think it's time for a reboot.

Unfortunately, without a complete reboot, I've lost all faith and interest in the Transformers movie Universe.

Well if it's set on Cybertron and features no actual actors, yeah, it's basically an animated film either way.

Well, if this new TFEU dream team does their homework on Cybertron's history in every continuity, they should produce something...kinda worthwhile.

You know what would be astounding? If they were to make such a prequel adapted from those comics. I mean, they already have the story material available for them to use and take from, so all they need to do is take the stories of the Movie Prequel, Defiance, Foundation, etc. and put them on the big screen.

so the road to the transformers cinematic universe begins....i wonder which properties would be merged by hasbro, because we are talking about a hasbro cinematic universe, not only transformers and that's for sure.

i see a few mainly options with cameos among themselves...

1.- transformers: the top of the hasbro properties will dominate the cinematic landscape.

2.- g.i.joe: the most obvious crossover with the franchise, as in the comics has been for several years as well as some cool interesting plots.

3.- m.a.s.k.(mobile armored strike kommand): the newcomer. a former gijoe member who is assigned to a secret special mission unit by using the first prototypes of cybertonian-earth based vehicles, to stop the evil terrorist cell (not an army as cobra or destro) of former destro's iron grenadier, miles "general" meyhem', leader of v.e.n.o.m.(vicious enemy network of meyhem), a group of mercenaries and outcasted dreadnoks who have also disserted or work undercover with stolen technology from cobra/destro that is also derived from autobot/decepticon? salvage.

4.- the inhumanoids: the spin-off of spin-offs. u.n's earth corps (or joe's) dr. herc armstrong investigates several mutations on earth's ecosystems, caused by decepticon continously substraction of energon resources or perhaps some kind of space virus/ alien life forms broght from cybertronians, that is creating inhumanoids, threatening human populances around the world.

ok, that's all i can think about right now, maybe a visionaries movie theme could be tossed out somewhere but, i couldn't figure it out where.

whta do u think?

These guys don't quit do they? The shear determination to stay with the Bayverse despite critically being ridiculed. It's become Stockholm syndrome at this point. It took them four movies to realize that we want to see Cybertron. Well they missed their chance IMO. Everyone I talk to, all unanimously agree that the movies have gone down in quality and have become unwatchable. Take AOE for example. No coherence whatsoever, just imagine Junk food in media terms. So bad for you, yet somehow you can't stop. Everybody around keeps on doing it, talking about, even though they hate it. We've seen better stuff since 2007. Movies that really gave us something in return. Something meaningful.
I am all for having a Cybertron based Tf film. It's what I wanted and every single movie expected it to be better. Going into AOE I truly thought it would change the game, but I was gravely mistaken.
Whatever is coming out of Hollywood and Hasbro at this point will be the exact same crap that we have seen before. Sure maybe some nice action, maybe some decent toys and designs. But horrible movies and a complete waste of potential.
It's this stubborn mentality that sometimes pisses me off about TF. They saw the success with Marvel and just wanted to copy it. But just like the KOs they claim to hate, they themselves have become KO personified.
I just hope people wake up and stop accepting the scams that are around them. People just want to turn off their brains and accept the mediocre crap that is being fed to them.
If this rumor is true, which let's face it, probably is. Bay is planning 1000 more movies. That ego of his will consume us all. As fans we'll just be starving for the bits of fanservice they will offer, and we'll be like, "oh look he gave us crumbs....see he's kind to us".
Just anything to sell the figures.... "screw the people watching, we don't care about them, we just want to take and not give back."

oh well. Just like the obesity epidemic, I think we as a society and as a community will see the consequences with time, could be good or bad. IMO I think they're bad and killing the franchise slowly at the cost of longevity and meaningful content.

Yes I know, I'm hating, and you guys don't like hating so that the status quo is not disturbed and makes people feel bad.

I'm sorry, but how is this a big deal? She looks fit & pretty and it's da future. I truly hope people don't childishly freakout over an underwear wearing female in the future.

I do agree that the panty shots in the Transformers movies are just misplaced.

Ontopic:

A non-human all Cybertron movie sounds great. Difficult because everything will be shifting skeletal metal. No trees, no sand, no human designed vehicles. I don't know if it will work as a full feature movie.

I'm going to watch the hell out of it in cinema's nonetheless, but it might not be such a hit as the regular Transformers movies.

Id much rather see a weekly TV show along the lines of Agents of Shield or something.

What, an aneurysm? Epilepsy? Because there are only a few things I like about that bloated monstrosity.

And the dinobots are NOT among them.
