Ever since the 2007 release of Michael Bay’s Transformers, the Transformers franchise has been easily one of the most profitable film franchises in recent memory. Despite negative critical reception to the majority of these entries, fans are still curious to see what will be the next major project featuring the Autobots and Decepticons. Fortunately, Paramount recently announced that two new Transformers-related projects are in the work.
The first film is a sequel to Bumblebee. Despite being not nearly as big of a hit as the other Transformers movie, Bumblebee ended up being the best reviewed film in the Transformers franchise with a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. . The second project is a film adaptation of the iconic Transformers spin-off series, Beast Wars. Much like the original cartoon and toy-line, Beast Wars still centers around giant robots transforming into things, though this time those things are robotic animals instead of vehicles.
The two projects in question, however, currently don’ have a director, screenwriter or actors attached at the moment. The only ones currently attached are John Wick 3 producer Joby Harold for Bumblebee 2 and Ready or Not producer James Vanderbilt for Beast Wars. Despite being in early production, fans are certainly intrigued by these films and what Paramount may do with Transformers next. There’s definitely more than meets the eye when it comes to what you can do with these giant robot films.
