Last month we learned that Paramount Pictures was planning a shared universe for the Trasnformers franchise, lead by screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind, Batman and Robin). The plan is to write a story for Transformers 5 then multiple sequels and spinoffs, but today Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner confirmed the plans and a target date for the next Transformers film.
“Our plan with the studio and filmmakers you may have heard some writers being hired and we have in fact brought in Akiva Goldsman to lead a group of writers to really create a strategic plan around Transformers. We think there are any number of stories to be told from the brand that has been around for 30 years with amazing canon and mythology. We would expect the sequel to the Transformers movie [TF4] to happen in 2017.”
