Paramount is looking to bless us with two new Transformers films.
According to Deadline Zodiac and Murder Mystery writer James Vanderbilt will pen one film, with King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Army of the Dead scribe Joby Harold penning the other. Vanderbilt’s project is said to be based on Transformers spinoff Beast Wars, with Harold’s a spinoff set within the Bumblebee universe.
Beast Wars was a Transformers spinoff set in prehistoric Earth in which robots transformed into robotic animals like Optimus Primal who changed into a Gorilla. The series explored the conflict between the descendants of the two main factions in the original cartoon: the Maximals are the descendants of the Autobots and the Predacons are the descendants of the Decepticons.
There are no directors currently in talks to helm two the two projects, but Deadline did note that both films would feature new casts.
I know Transformers isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but I love nothing more than seeing metal mayhem on screen for two hours.
