Director Michael Bay has confirmed that there are currently 14 more Transformers stories in development over at Paramount. The news was dropped at a recent preview event for Transformers: The Last Knight over in London.
Bay appeared in a pre-recorded segment ahead of 30 minutes of unfinished footage announcing that the new stories had been thrashed out during the development process for The Last Knight to lay the groundwork for the future of the billion dollar franchise.
The director then went on to confirm that The Last Knight was to be his final Transformers movie (although, we've all heard that before!), and that he would be going out on a high.
Paramount Pictures formed a Transformers writing room back in 2015 led by Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind) and including the likes of Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man); Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down); Zak Penn (Ready Player One); Lindsey Beer (Barbie); Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider); Christina Hodson (Bumblebee); Steven DeKnight (Daredevil); Jeff Pinkner (Lost); and Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari (Ant-Man).
"We’ve got a work space that is beautifully production designed to be immersive with a strong sense of the franchise history," Goldsman said back in 2015. "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."
Transformers: The Last Knight hits theatres this summer.
