The Transformers Cinematic Universe Writer's Room Convenes Today! 12 Movies To Be Pitched!?
RAC - Monday, June 08, 2015


Forbes has posted an in-depth article about the particulars of the Transformers Writers' Room, which meets for the first time today! The eleven writers plus head writer Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind, Batman & Robin) will be surrounded by all aspects of the franchise in order to pitch their movies... and with each writer being encouraged to pitch their own movie, Goldsman included, we could be looking at an even dozen of Transformers films entering development as we speak. Keep reading for a selection from the article!
The Paramount Transformers story room has fully populated itself with Zack Penn (The Incredible Hulk), Jeff Pinker (Lost), Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man), The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari (Ant-Man), Christina Hodson (Shut In), Lindsey Beer, Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down) and Geneva Robertson-Dworet. It’s being run by Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), who recently talked to Deadline about how this team is going to generate movies:

“We’ve got a work space that is beautifully production designed to be immersive with a strong sense of the franchise history…We will look at the toys, the TV shows, the merchandise, everything that has been generated by Hasbro , from popular to forgotten iterations, and establish a mythological time line. It has been designed with a lot of visual help, toys, robots, sketches and writers and artists. After that super saturation, the writers will figure out not one, but numerous films that will extend the universe.”

The first task the Transformers story room has to tackle is a sequel to the $1.1 billion grossing Transformers: Age of Extinction. The script would need to be ready for Michael Bay to direct after he’s wrapped up 13 Hours, his Benghazi siege movie. Once that’s been beaten out by the writers, they each have to turn in a treatment for a film, according to Deadline:

“All of the writers will come away with this exercise with a movie treatment to write, including Goldsman. Those writers will then have first crack at writing the scripts for treatment that meet the approval of Paramount, Bay, [Steven] Spielberg, Hasbro and the producers.”

Goldsman also says that writers can chase their passions in the Transformers universe, especially if it motivates them into multiple treatments: “If one of the writers discovers an affinity for Beast Wars, they can drive forward on treatments that will have been fleshed out by the whole room.”

If Goldsman is also making a treatment to add to the pile made by his 11 writers, that’s a total of 12 new Transformers movies that will be pitched to Paramount in the first round, and all of them will be capable of interconnecting with each other. There’s no telling how many of the pitches will be green-lit or how many stories will be kicked down to Transformers TV or video games, but the amount of output expected is impressive.

There are now several groups or rooms devoted to an organized rollout of popular intellectual properties and Transformers is the newest. But, if the name of the game is to populate an inter-connected franchise with content, this megafranchise has the most incoming profit to play with and seems to be ready to meet that demand with as much supply as possible.

While the price points larger than Deluxe were not part of the official preview offering of Studio Series that began during Toy Fair weekend on Hasbro Toy Shop, it seems like availability is not much of a problem in Asia right now. The Vietnamese Facebook group Transformers Club currently has numerous photos of wave 1 Voyager Optimus Prime, based on the character's appearance in Revenge of The Fallen. The photos were shared by Vu Ngoc Bach and show lots of detail of the toy in an outdoor setting that's very flattering. We have the photos mirrored below, click through to take a look!
Via Weibo, we have some ...interesting photos to show of the brand new Studio Series Movie Bumblebee figure. The newest Bumblebee is a brand new try at the 2007 movie's Classic Camaro alt mode, and the overall effort in realizing that looks pretty good. But it may not be as exciting when you see its size compared to The Last Knight Premier Edition Bumblebee for last year. The mirrored comparison photos make it hard to escape the sense that it's distinctly less toy for the same price. Click through to see it for yourself!
Thanks to chuckdawg1999 on our forums, we've got a first in hand review to bring you for Deluxe Stinger from wave 1 of the Studio Series lineup.

We'll be bringing you additional coverage on this figure soon, but in the meantime click through to watch Chuck's review, embedded below!
