Giant fighting robot cars are pretty bad ass and the metal grinding show of Optimus Prime is nowhere near the end, reveal latest sources. The Transformers are set to have four more sequels mapped to span over the next years.
Speaking at the MIP Junior event at Cannes, Stephen J. Davis, the Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice Present of Hasbro Studios, revealed that the plots have already been mapped out.
“We decided we wanted to plot out the next 10 years of the Transformers franchise, and so we got together in a room over a three-month period of time.”They plotted out the next ten 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,” he said, confirming that works were on for more Transformers.
Akiva Goldsman, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of “A Beautiful Mind,” is leading the pack of writers. Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead, Jeff Pinkner, the Executive Producer of Fringe and Steven S. DeKnight, the former Daredevil show runner are in for the upcoming features.
Iron Man’s screenwriting team, the Black Hawk Down writer and the X-Men: Last Stand writer are all engaged too. Michael Bay, the director for the last four features, won the Golden Raspberry Award for the Worst Director for the 2014′s Transformers. He has not been signed up yet into the fifth.
Though 2014′s Transformers: Age of Extinction garnered criticism for being a run-of-the-mill lackluster, the series consistently proved to be good blockbusters starting with the first that released in 2007. The Transformers 5 is set to release in 2017 and will feature Mark Wahlberg once more as Cade Yeager.
Though there are no titles on the upcoming installments, it is a bit thrilling to know that most hardcore fans will be over 30 before Transformers finally die.
