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.
