Transformers Cinematic Universe writer’s room member Lindsey Beer has posted a tweet in which she indicates future films in the live-action franchise will give more attention to the characters of the Transformers themselves.   She had the following to say:

“The Transformers will be treated as real characters.  As a fan as well as a writer, I promise we’re delivering some awesomeness.”

The most recent entry in the franchise, Transformers: Age of Extinction, contained notably more robot characterization than the previous entries, and based on Beer’s words it seems future films will likewise continue in that direction.

Transformers-Cinematic-Universe

Forbes Magazine is bringing news on Paramount‘s Transformers’ story room, that at least 12 movies will be penned for the Transformers Cinematic Universe.

Monday, June 8th is the first official day of operations at Paramount’s Transformers’ story room, where almost a dozen writers will steep their collective heads in franchise lore before churning out the next decades worth of stories for movies and television. “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.”
“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.” 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.

Bumblebee will be making a Cameo appearance on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.

Thanks to onlookers on the set of TMNT 2, we have several footage of what appears to be the Turtle brothers attending a Halloween Parade (as themselves probably) being greeted by another participant of the parade, dressed as Bumblebee. The person then proceeds to high five Michelangelo.

Deadline, which seems to be the go-to source regarding recent announcements regarding the Transformers Cinematic Universe of sequels, prequels and spin-offs, has just announced two more writers that have been added to the writer’s room headed by Akiva Goldsman. The new additions are Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down) and Geneva Robertson-Dworet. These new writers join the previously announced team of Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, Zak Penn, Jeff Pinkner, Robert Kirkman, Christina Hodson, Lindsey Beer, Andrew Barrer, and Gabriel Ferrari.

Akiva Goldsman also explains some of the reasoning behind this writer’s room in the article, so check out the link above to read what he has to say. In one paragraph he even mentions Beast Wars as something that could be explored:

“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,” Goldsman said.

Only time will tell if a spin-off featuring the Maximals and Predacons of Beast Wars will become a reality, but the possibility is mentioned by Mr. Goldsman himself! It appears that they are considering many options for future films.
