Thought that the Transformers movie franchise had run its course? Don’t be silly…
With a fifth live-action Transformers currently in development, not to mention an animated origin story, now comes word that there’s seemingly plans in place for 10 further years of Robots in Disguise action. This news comes after Hasbro Studios’ Stephen J. Davis spoke at Cannes’ MIP Junior event.
Davis revealed, “Well, you’re going to see a new Transformers movie coming from Hasbro and Paramount and Michael Bay and our other partners. In fact, we just finished, as some of you may have read, just an incredible experience. We decided that we wanted to plot out the next 10 years of the Transformers franchise, so we got together in a room over a three-month period of time. Nine of some of the most creative writers I have ever worked with, shepherded by Akiva Goldsman, who many of you may know won an Academy Award for A Beautiful Mind and written a bunch of great movies. And they plotted out the next 10 years of Transformers. Similarly, we are doing the same in television and in digital. So stay tuned, Transformers 5 is on its way, and 6 and 7 and 8.”
So there we have it: don’t be expecting to see the Autobots and Decepticons power down any time soon.
Sure, Mark Wahlberg is to return to headline Transformers 5, with Michael Bay likely directing again, but is there really the need or want for Transformers 6, Transformers 7 and Transformers 8? We’ll let you decide.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
