Paramount Pictures has hired screenwriters Joby Harold (“King Arthur: Legend of the Sword,” “John Wick: Chapter 2”) and James Vanderbilt (“Zodiac,” “Murder Mystery”) to pen the next two live-action “Transformers” movies.
Both scribes will each only pen one of the new entries, with both projects to be developed simultaneously. A director or directors have not yet been named. It’s also not clear if the new “Transformers” represents a continuation of the Michael Bay films or will be a reboot.
Hasbro Studios has expressed an interest in building its own cinematic universe, and a reboot could allow other properties from “G.I. Joe” to “ROM” to “Micronauts” to crossover.
