But that’s not the end of the Transformers coming this way.
The writers’ room have come up with an idea – an experiment, if you will – where they release Tranformers 5 AND an animated movie at the same time, telling one big overlapping story.
Academy Award winner Akiva Goldsman (I Am Legend, A Beautiful Mind) will write Transformers 5 while Ant-Man writers Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari will write a story based on Cybertron that will tell the origin of the Transformers.
Oh, and Mark Wahlberg is tipped to return as inventor Cade Yeager. That name, though.
No dates for either of these movies yet, but we reckon it will happen pretty quickly.
Re: directing TF5. No, it’s not official. I have not committed to any idea as of yet. Just met with Steven and we are discussing.
