Paramount has decided to pull the seventh Transformers from the 2019 line up, according to Variety. The news comes after the studio got word that the first five films made a combined 4.4 billion worldwide and Transformers: The Last Knight only brought in 605 million worldwide.
The film was originally set for release June 28, 2019, but there’s no word so far on a new date. The studio does still plan on releasing the Michael Bay spin off, Bumblebee, on December 21, 2018.
In addition to the Transformer news, Paramount has decided to go another direction with the release of Tiffanys Haddish’s comedy Limited Partners on June 28, 2018 instead. Haddish made her debut in last year’s Girl’s Trip and is starring in two comedies this fall including Universal’s Night School with Kevin Hart and Paramount’s ‘untitled’ Tyler Perry Film. In addition, she will be voicing a character with Kevin Hart in the sequel to The Secret Life of Pets on June 7, 2019.
There are two other movies which are so far on the scheduled line up for 2019 which include the Elton John biopic Rocketman on May 17, 2019, as well as Stephen King’s Pet Sematary reboot, which the studio moved forward two weeks to open April 5, 2019.
