Hashbro’s Executive Vice President and Chief Content Officier Stephen J. Davis explained at the MIP Junior Conference (via TFW 2005) that fans were set to see “Transformers 6”, “Transformers 7”, “Transformers 8”, on their way, along with the upcoming “Transformers 5”.
The Transformers Universe is underway as not only is it learned three more sequels in addition to the fifth movie are being planned, but the next ten years have been mapped out as well. “And 6 and 7 and 8.”
Watch the speech below. (Possibly because it pays so well.) And now, there could be more big name actors to slum it with racist robots, because Hasbro have just confirmed that 4 more sequels are coming.
Akiva Goldsman, whose numerous screenwriting credits include The Da Vinci Code, A lovely Mind and I Am Legend, heads up the “writers’ room”, joined by Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead comic book series, and Lost/The unbelievable Spider-Man 2 scribe Jeff Pinkner.
There will also be an animated film written by Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari. On the other, it looks like they’re beginning to take a few cues from what companies like Marvel are doing by figuring out a plan that they can then align all of their products around.
Even though the franchise has dipped in popularity among movie critics, it can’t be denied that the “Transformers” films do make large sums of money.
Despite the Razzies nominations, Transformers: Age of Extinction was the highest grossing film of 2014, ahead of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. The most-recent effort, Transformers: Age of Extinction, may have been a massive turd from a critical perspective, but it still brought in over $1billion in global box office, and that’s all while losing the franchise’s insane talisman, Shia Labeouf. Bay is still attached in a few capacity to the project, but the extent of his involvement is still unknown. The studio wants the Transformers franchise to come up with a few sequels to add to the long list of movies they have already released.
