Transformers Sequels 5, 6, 7, and 8 green-lighted by Hasbro. Hasbro Studios president Stephen J. Davis was the keynote speaker at the MIPJunior 2015 in Cannes. At the conference, Davis talked about all things Hasbro, including the Transformers. He spoke about Hasbro’s animated Transformers properties (to be written by Gabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer) as well as their live-action Transformers films.
Davis had this to say about the future of the Transformers film franchise:
“Well, you’re going to see a new Transformers movie coming from Hasbro and Paramount and Michael Bay and our other partners,” he says. “In fact, we just finished, as some of you may have read, just an incredible experience. 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.”
With Transformers: Age of Extinction aka Transformers 4 earning over one billion dollars at the box office, the fact that more Transformers films are on the way is no surprise.
The writing room that Davis referred, handling the future of the live-action Transformers films, consists of: Zak Penn, Ken Nolan, Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Christina Hodson, Steven DeKnight, Lindsey Beer, Robert Kirkman, Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, and Jeff Pinkner.
