I barely remember anything about Transformers 4. I had to look at IMDb to remind myself what the subtitle was (it was Age of Extinction) and I’m pretty sure this was the one with the Dinobots? But the one thing that really...
Well, if nothing else, at least we now know Transformers 5 will look really, really good. John Wick cinematographer John Sela has been hired to shoot Michael Bay’s upcoming mega-robot blockbuster sequel — unfortunately for us (but fortunately for him), Keanu Reeves will not be making an appearance, but rest assured that he will be with Michael Bay in spirit, hopefully using his unique brand of zen to guide Bay through this difficult process
Hasbro executives threatened announced today that new entries in the Transformers franchise would be coming in 2017, 2018, and 2019. Part of a planned twelve-film franchise, these three films will expand the pre-existing cinematic universe of the...
With Shredder, Bebop, Rocksteady, Baxter Stockman, Casey Jones and all the rest of the new additions to the lineup for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, many have been wondering if they’d be able to squeeze in fan favorite villain Krang — a character whose name has been conspicuously absent from marketing materials and casting announcements. Don’t worry, Krang fans (all five of you), because Michael Bay says we’ll see our favorite bad brain appear in the TMNT sequel.
After about a year of rumors and tentative confirmations and completely valid assumptions, Michael Bay has confirmed that he will indeed return to direct Transformers 5 — to the surprise of pretty much no one at all. Although the director previously said Age of Extinction would be his last time in the director’s chair on the blockbuster franchise, Bay can’t seem to keep himself away from all his big shiny robot friends.
A second, red-band trailer for 13 Hours has been unveiled and it trades the first spot’s slow-burning tension for scorching violence, an all-out assault coming from mysterious enemies. Both trailers are united by Bay’s distinctive visual aesthetic, which can only be described as “what if real life was a first-person shooter video game”.
10. That’s the number of years we have left in the Transformers franchise…for now. This year, Paramount and writer / producer Akiva Goldsman recruited a brain trust of writers to formulate plans for Transformers sequels, as well as potential spinoffs and animated projects. Their work yielded plans for Transformers 5, as well as an animated origin story prequel. But how many more films are in the works? Rumor has it they have plans for at least five.
The most recent attempt to bring Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan into the modern movie era didn’t quite garner keep Shadow Recruit in the spotlight, so where better to go than TV? Networks are reportedly competing for a new series based on the CIA super-analyst, as envisioned by LOST alum Carlton Cuse and Michael Bay.
After months of brain-storming, the Transformers writers room has finished their work…for now. Writers room head Akiva Goldsman is officially scripting Transformers 5, with Mark Wahlberg confirmed to return and Michael Bay in talks to return to the director’s chair after declaring he was finished with the franchise. In addition, that previously rumored animated spinoff is officially happening with the writers of Ant-Man.
Paramount’s plans for the continuation of the Transformers franchise are certainly ambitious — earlier this year the studio announced a new writer’s room which will plot the future of the series, including sequels and spinoffs, like Transformers 5. So far we know that Mark Wahlberg is returning for the sequel, though not much else is known about the film, which may or may not be directed by Michael Bay. But some potential new plot details have been revealed, giving us an idea about where the sequel will take Cade Yaeger and the Autobots in their next outing.
