Paramount’s 2024-2026 Slate: A Sneak Peek

Among the many films showcased at CinemaCon, the spotlight shone on several notable projects. A standout original project is IF, directed by John Krasinski. This movie centres around a girl who discovers she can see everyone’s imaginary friends and takes on a magical journey to reconnect them with their children. The film stars Cailey Fleming, Ryan Reynolds, Fiona Shaw, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Steve Carell in unique roles that reflect the power of a child’s imagination.

Sequels and Origin Stories

A wave of excitement swept through attendees as Paramount unveiled sequels like Smile 2 and Gladiator II. The latter, the much-awaited follow-up to Ridley Scott’s Oscar-winning blockbuster, will see the return of director Scott, with a cast that includes Denzel Washington.

The first-ever animated Transformers film – Transformers One – is set to hit the big screen soon. Directed by Josh Cooley, the film serves as an origin story outlining the evolution of iconic characters Orion Pax and D-16 into their alternate avatars, Optimus Prime and Megatron.

Star Trek fans also have a reason to rejoice, with the announcement of an untitled Star Trek Origin Story taking place before the 2009 film. The project will be steered by Toby Haynes with Seth Grahame-Smith at the writing helm and J.J. Abrams producing.

Innovative Crossovers and Live Actions

Paramount breaks the mold with a Transformers / G.I. Joe crossover, merging two major action franchises into one explosive movie. Simultaneously, the studio is venturing an R-rated live-action version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, providing a fresh and mature take on the beloved franchise.

Comedy, Horror, Music, And More

The announcement of a live-action comedy from Trey Parker and Matt Stone injects a comedic tone into the lineup. Joining the comedy genre is the revival of the Scary Movie franchise with Scary Movie 6, amplified by Miramax’s recent collaboration with Paramount.

For music lovers, a biopic of The Bee Gees directed by Ridley Scott will be hitting the screens. And the supernatural horror Smile 2, which grossed $217m worldwide in 2022, is set to send shivers down the audience’s spine.


Paramount’s slate reveal delivers a perfect mix of nostalgia, creativity, and innovation.
