Published on April 11th, 2017 | Updated on April 11th, 2017 | By FanFest
Michael Bay has revealed that Paramount is currently developing 14 Transformers movies.
Bay recently talked at a promotion for Transformers: The Last Knight at CinemaCon that the Transformers writers room has outlined 14 more stories set in the Transformers universe. Now, planning 8 movies doesn’t necessarily mean we will be GETTING 8 movies, but the news is nonetheless exciting. Transformers is definitely one of those saga’s that is frequently overlooked.
Below we have complied a last of the known in-development movies:
Transformers: The Last Knight: Arriving in theaters on June 23rd, Tranformers: The Last Knight looks to be one of the most epic Transformers movies yet.
Humans are at war with the Transformers, and Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving the future lies buried in the secrets of the past and the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Now, it’s up to the unlikely alliance of Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), Bumblebee, an English Lord (Anthony Hopkins) and an Oxford professor (Laura Haddock) to save the world.
Transformers 6: Although we know nothing about the plot, we do know that the script was written by Christina Hodson, with story by credits from Matt Holloway, Art Marcum, and Ken Nolan. The film is targeted for a release on June 28, 2019.
Transformers 7: Another script that has no plot information, but screenplay credits include Matt Holloway, Art Marcum and Ken Nolan. The plan is to have this in theaters in Summer 2021.
Transformers 8: Another script that has no plot information, but screenplay credits include Matt Holloway, Art Marcum and Ken Nolan. The hope is to have this in theaters for Summer 2023.
Bumblebee: The Bumblebee movie will be directed by Travis Knight, with the movie scheduled to hit theaters on June 8, 2018. The story is a prequel focusing on Bumblebee in the years before he met up with Sam Witwicky.
An R-Rated Bumblebee Movie: Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has revealed that one of the stories to come out of the Transformers writers room is a “really fun R rated [movie], with Bumblebee. I don’t wanna say, but it would be really fun. Very Quentin [Tarantino], you know.” I’m assuming since they decided to go with the Christina Hodson script, this one won’t be happening.
Transformers One: An animated film centered around the origins of the Autobots and Decepticons, is currently in development with Ant-Man screenwriters Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari. The movie will focus on the Transformers home-world of Cybertron. It is in continuity with the mythology that was developed in the writers room. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has said that it is “our deep dive into Cybertron will have some continuity to that. There is a—I won’t say a relationship, but I’ll say it’s touching on relatively the same time period, so I think in that sense, there’s a direct relationship. We’re not trying to affect the animated movie, and the animated movie is not trying to mimic or take from [the live-action films]. It’s just we’re taking from the same general area.” He also revealed that while the story is not Earth-based, it will have an “Earth-relationship to it” to keep it relatable.
Roman Transformers Movie: While nothing has been formally announced, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has hinted that a Transformers film set during Roman times is something that they may be working on.
