Casting may still be up in the air, but that hasn't stopped Hasbro Studios from plotting the next four Transformers movies.
Speaking at the MIP Junior event in Cannes (an international conference focused on children's movies), Hasbro Studios president Stephen J. Davis announced the studio had already begun working out the details for Transformers 5, 6, 7 and 8.
"We decided that we wanted to plot out the next ten years of the Transformers franchise, so we got together in a room over a three-month period of time," Nerdist reported. "They plotted out the next ten 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."
Helmed by Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), Davis couldn't emphasize enough the names of various prolific writers Hasbro managed to snag for the franchise.
The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Fringe executive producer Jeff Pinkner, former Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight, screenwriting team Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man), Black Hawk Down writer Ken Nolan, and X-Men: Last Stand writer Zak Penn are all on board for the next four features.
On top of that, Davis confirmed the studio was working with Paramount to produce a new animated origins story, which would be written by two members of the Transformers 5 team.
Transformers 5 is scheduled to be released in 2017.
