Since Michael Bay decided to make Transformers: Age of Extinction his last directorial outing with the franchise, it’s been unclear just where the series is heading. We’d heard talk of Mark Wahlberg returning to continue the storyline that began with last summer’s film, but little else since then. Taking a cue from Disney’s Star Wars plans (along with every other major studio’s “expanded universe” attempts), Paramount has hired Akiva Goldsman to create a “writers room” and brainstorm new sequel and spinoff ideas.

Few horror franchises have bottomed out quite as quickly as 'The Ring,' which went from one of the scariest movies of the '00s to one of the worst horror sequels ever made. How bad was 'The Ring Two'? It took a series that felt like a sure thing and put it into hibernation for the better part of a decade. But you can only keep a well-dwelling, VHS-loving, long-haired girl ghost down for so long! We knew that 'The Ring 3D' was in the works, but now an Academy Award winning screenwriter is being brought on board to work on the script.

Throw another movie franchise on the TV remake pile, as it seems Paramount Television looks to resurrect Patrick Swayze classic 'Ghost' on the small screen. 'Fringe' alumni Jeff Pinkner and Akiva Goldsman have been tasked with conjuring a pilot for the latest TV reboot, but what network would a potential 'Ghost' TV series land on?

The first trailer for Akiva Goldsman's directorial debut 'Winter's Tale' will probably make the most sense to those who've read the Mark Helprin book. We're a little unsure of what to make of it, though it stars Colin Farrell as a charming thief and Russell Crowe as a bad guy (and possible sorcerer), so it could be worth watching.
