Paramount announces 'Transformers' expansion with more spinoffs and sequels.Paramount is following in Marvel's footsteps and is planning on expanding the 'Transformer's universe with new spinoffs and sequels. According to Variety, Paramount wants to make even more money off of the transforming metal heroes.
Paramount Pictures, Michael Bay and Lorenzo di Bonaventura are bringing on Akiva Goldsman to help expand the “Transformers” cinematic universe. Deadline reports Goldsman would not be writing but instead assembling and overseeing a “writers room” to hatch an idea for how to tackle a two-part sequel in the film’s franchise in addition to potential spinoffs. Goldsman would likely join Bay, di Bonaventura and Steven Spielberg as a producer.It is unknown whether Michael Bay will return to directing for any new sequels in the 'Transformer' franchise. Bay is currently working on the Benghazi thriller '13 Hours.' It is no surprise Paramount is looking to make more movies. In a world where franchises, sequels, and spinoffs are the only movies in the box office, it seems like the smartest decision for a movie studio whose last 'Transformers' movie made $1 billion worldwide last year.
