Here’s a small update from Transformers 4. It seems as though that initial plans of the 4th installment of the Transformers Live Action Movie series is happening away from the public eye. DreamWorks President of Production; Adam Goodman recently spoke to the The Hollywood Reporter regarding their upcoming projects, and he had this to say about Trans4mers.THR: Is making Transformers 4 without Shia LaBeouf risky? Is he out?
Goodman: The story is going in a different direction now. Ehren Kruger [who wrote the past two Transformers movies] is writing it for us, and we’re starting to engage, but I can’t say anything more.
Also, it was hinted that TF4 might come under Nickelodeon; a subsidiary of Viacom which Paramount belongs to.THR: Michael Bay is re-envisioning Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for Nickelodeon movies. What are your plans for Nick?
Goodman: We want it to be family adventures and really hard-core family comedies. If I was starting again, I would have put Transformers through Nick. Upcoming movies that could be released through the label are Christopher Columbus’ The Secret Lives of Road Crews or Etan Cohen’s Boy Scouts vs. Zombies.
Ehren Kruger worked with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen script and wrote the script for Transformers: Dark of the Moon after the departure of Orci and Kurtzman.
