While doing the rounds during TCAs 2015, former showrunner Steven DeKnight talked not only of Daredevil and plans for Season 2, but about his involvement in another big franchise: Transformers. Not only has DeKnight revealed which writers will officially be tackling Transformers 5, but he’s opened up a bit about the franchise’s “brain trust” and how it works.

Just when you thought Akiva Goldsman’s Transformers writers room was complete, he goes an adds someone else to the staff, collecting writers as if he’s picking up Pokemon. The latest addition to the writers room is former Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight, who joins fellow TV pro Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) in a room that’s looking more and more promising. Surely with so many smart, talented people, they can roll out a few good Transformers movies, right? Right…?

As the new creative director/writers room head for the Transformers franchise, producer Akiva Goldsman’s job is to collect a group of talented and diverse writers and oversee future projects for the franchise, including sequels and spinoffs. Goldsman has just added two more writers to his room, which is apparently now fully-staffed and ready to roll out their mission. But…what is that mission, exactly? Goldsman was kind enough to share.

A couple of months ago, we learned that Paramount, along with producers Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg, hired Akiva Goldsman to head up a new Transformers brain trust, giving Goldsman creative control over the future of the franchise. Goldsman has just put together the writer’s room for the upcoming sequels and spinoffs, and it’s…interesting.

Now that Upfronts 2015 have thoroughly decided the fate of superhero TV over the next few months, from Legends of Tomorrow’s season order to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s spinoff pullback, at least a few comic-adapted series remain in limbo. In particular, TNT’s proposed Titans series seems somewhat stalled, though producers say the pilot may ramp up production this summer.

Last month, we reported on Paramount’s plans to continue their Transformers franchise, following Michael Bay’s decision to exit the director’s chair to focus on non-robot projects (we’ll see). According to reports, the studio plans on not only releasing another sequel, but expanding the universe with spinoffs, hiring Akiva Goldsman to oversee a creative team of writers. Hasbro has now confirmed those plans, along with the intention to release a new Transformers movie in 2017.

Now, long after everyone assumed that this entire project was dead and buried and possibly in other hands, The Dark Tower has ben brought back to life at Sony where yes, the plan is still to make a film and TV series following the same characters.

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.

According to a new report, DC and Warner Bros. have pitched a 'Titans' TV series (yes, those Titans), which as we speak nears a pilot order at TNT. Yes, TNT.

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.
