Taking a page from what Disney is doing with Star Wars, Marvel’s Avengers and the Fox Avatar films, Paramount is planning to expand the Transformers franchise.
Deadline reports Paramount is in negotiations with Akiva Goldsman to work with Michael Bay, executive producer Steven Spielberg and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventural to “organize a ‘writers room’ that will incubate ideas for a potential multi-part Transformers sequel along with potential spinoff films.”
It’s said this is happening rather quickly, and that it’s not hard to see why Paramount is moving forward as Transformers is a billion dollar franchise and last year’s Transformers: Age Of Extinction was the highest grossing film of the year with nearly $1.1 billion.
No specific details are mentioned, but it sounds as if we’ll possibly see back-to-back Transformers movies, akin to the Avengers: Infinity War movies, as well as spinoffs in-between the main movies (again similar to Star Wars).
I wouldn’t mind seeing a Transformers / Unicron two-parter.
