Two new Transformers movies are reportedly in the works from Paramount that will feature all-new casts.
It’s reported the flicks are in active development with one script being written by James Vanderbilt and the other by Joby Harold.
Vanderbilt has written for Independence Day: Resurgence, The Amazing Spider-Man films, White House Down, Zodiac and more.
Harold is known for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Zack Snyder’s upcoming zombie Netflix movie Army of the Dead.
Paramount Revamping Transfomers in a big way
No plot details are known, but it is said that Paramount is revamping the franchise in a big way in which the new scripts and movies “will present an opportunity to build out multiple storylines within the franchise.”
It’s said that the success of the recent Bumblebee movie is opening up a new opportunity “to continue the franchise, with the studio now expanding the Transformers universe with the development of the two scripts.”
It’s further noted that while no directors are attached to either script at the moment that Paramount considers the flicks a top priority and wants directors onboard each script as soon as possible.
Last year saw Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura confirmed new Transformers projects were in the works with a new movie being developed as part of their main Transformers franchise, and a Bumblebee sequel featuring Optimus Prime, but is unclear if these new scripts are the same projects.
It’s also known that Michael Bay won’t be back as Lorenzo di Bonaventura also confirmed Bay’s exit from the franchise and that there will be no sequel to The Last Knight.
Transformers is huge for Paramount as it has grossed more than $4 billion worldwide over the course of five films which kicked off back in 2007.
A new shared universe has also been rumored that would feature Transformers, GI Joe and even the Power Rangers, as Hasbro owns all the IPs.
