President Steven J. Davis announced over the weekend at MIPJunior in Cannes, France.
“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.”
Goldsman will write Paramount Pictures’ “Transformers 5,” with “Age of Extinction’s” Mark Wahlberg returning to star. Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari are set to tackle the animated movie, an origin story set on Cybertron.
