Transformers to extend franchise to four more movies – Hasbro chief

Transformers 5 announcements have just made the franchise fans think where the movie verse will travel next, but the recent announcement by Hasbro studio president Steven J Davis, the franchise is set for more sequels and spinoffs.

“Transformers has been a very important brand for Hasbro and we have some huge plans for it going ahead. We have already sat down with Micheal Bay and planned out a 10 year plan for Transformers movies,” said Davis said over the weekend at MIPJunior in Cannes, France.

Paramount Pictures which is working on Transformers 5, created a writers room to chalk out the future of the franchise with Akiva Goldsman being the one working on the fifth instalment. Others in the Transformers writers room included Steve DeKnight (Daredevil), Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Hibernation), Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead), Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man), Zak Penn (X-Men: The Last Stand), Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Lindsey Beer (How To Nail An Alien), Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari (Ant-Man) and Christina Hodson (Unforgettable).

Not only Transformers 5, movies 6,7and 8 too have been planned and along with a second season of its animated series too in works for Cartoon Network said Davis. Barrer and Ferrari, meanwhile, are set to tackle the animated movie, an origin story set on Cybertron.

Mark Wahlberg who starred in the fourth instalment Age of Extinction will reprise his role in the next film as well but the director is still undecided. Initial reports indicated that Michael Bay was again to direct, but quashed the rumours saying he had not commited to any ideas as yet.

“With All Spark – our movie production house, Backflip – our game development studio and Hasbro Studios – which develops animated content, we are here to cater to audiences of all ages and want to looked at as a company which stands for more than just toys,” ended Davis.
