Transformers One

All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

‘Ant-Man’ Scribes Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari Join ‘Transformers’ Writers Room: Cybertron Pic In Offing?
I’m hearing that one of the ideas in the works has a working title of Transformers One
Mike Fleming Jr wrote:EXCLUSIVE:
Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari, who spent half a year doing the production rewriting on Marvel’s Ant-Man, have become the latest to join the Writer’s Room that Paramount Pictures and director Michael Bay have organized to hatch sequels, prequels and spinoffs on their billion dollar Transformers franchise. I’m hearing that one of the ideas in the works has a working title of Transformers One, and that it is more or less an origins story that takes place on Cybertron, the planet where the good guy and bad guy robots hail from. Those talks originated with rights holder Hasbro. I’d also heard that this might be an animated feature, but that Barrer & Ferrari are also going to the writer’s room with the expectation they’ll write a live action Transformers movie, as well. Paramount insiders said that they haven’t gotten that far on the specific projects, but I am told this is the plan. A Cybertron movie sounds like fertile ground for a feature, to me.

The goal is to have a sequel ready for when Bay completes directing the Benghazi drama 13 Hours, and other projects to come right behind that one. The Transformers mythology is deep enough to sustain this, I’m told, so it might well turn out to be a smart play for Paramount, which needs big pictures. Transformers: Age Of Extinction was last year’s most profitable blockbuster, as named in Deadline’s analysis.

‘Transformers’ Writers Room Wraps: Akiva Goldsman Scripting ‘T5,’ Animated Film By ‘Ant-Man’ Scribes Barrer & Ferrari
Mike Fleming Jr wrote:All of them hatched ideas together and collaborated to flesh out the universe of the Hasbro toy line to come up with possible spinoffs, sequels and prequels that they then peeled off and generated treatments. Goldsman supervised the whole thing, and everybody pitched to Steven Spielberg, Bay, Paramount, Hasbro’s Brian Goldner and producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian and Swell Dude. I had heard they discovered that some of the ideas didn’t sustain full features and that maybe the universe wasn’t as big as suspected, but insiders say in fact that when all the pitches and treatments were reviewed, that Spielberg felt there were potential movies in five of the nine. They have three years to engage those writers to generate scripts based on the treatments they submitted. The loose plan is Goldsman first, the animated movie script, then a script by Pinkner, then one by Beers. Perhaps the most important thing that creating a proper Bible of places they could go is that they will plant seeds from the best ideas into the Transformers sequel that Goldsman is writing — the one that is expected to be the last that Bay directs himself. They’ve got enough ideas already to do one more Transformers film even if Bay decides not to direct it, but they’ll have created opportunities for spinoffs to keep moving on Paramount’s biggest franchise not named Mission: Impossible.


Goldsman told Deadline before they started that the hope was to reap the best collaborative things that come from TV writers rooms, and it appears that has happened, despite the uncertainty over how many movies were hatched. Universal is doing something similar to revive its classic monsters franchise, and they’re also doing it with Star Wars and at Marvel. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it happen with other franchise commitments, including the DC Comics projects and the recently instituted giant monster mashups that Legendary just moved from Universal to Warner Bros and which will pit King Kong against Godzilla. That could be expanded to other giant creatures controlled by Toho.

Empire has a story out about the writer’s room that has been assembled to keep Paramount in Transformers scripts for centuries to come. Via the Transformers fan site Transformer World 2005, we now have this information:

A Bumblebee spinoff, conceived and written by Christina Hodson, is being directed by Kubo and the Two Strings’ Travis Knight for a 2018 release. Set in the 1980s, it will feature significantly fewer Transformers, concentrating on the big, yellow star (who in the movies so far can only talk in snippets of radio broadcasts) and likely pitching a little younger, tonally. Also coming is an animated prequel about the origin myth of the Transformers’ home planet Cybertron, written by Ant-Man’s Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, set billions of years ago. And discussions have been had about one set in Ancient Rome.


Empire Magazine Article On Transformers Cinematic Universe
Silver Optimus wrote:You may remember that Empire promised us an article on Transformers Cinematic Universe Writers’ Room. The article is out now and 2005 Boards Member Temenos was kind to scan it for all of us to read.

To sum things up:

• Michael Bay met with the writers of TFCU during the principal photography of 13 Hours: Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi.

• Ken Nolan, Art Marcum and Matt Holloway wrote the story for Transformers: The Last Knight.

• Every iteration, every era was considered for the Cinematic Universe.

• The story of TLK is a combination of Nolan’s pitch on a story based on Transformers and King Arthur and Marcum/Holloway’s story based on World War II. However, the article states that three stories were consolidated into the movie.

• The Bumblebee Movie story is set in 1980s.

• The Bumblebee Movie will have less robots and the main focus is [obviously] Bumblebee.

• The tone of The Bumblebee Movie is pitched for the younger audience it seems.

• An Animated prequel is in the works. The story takes place in Cybertron regarding the origin myth of the Transformers millions of years ago. Ant-Man writers are working on the project.

• Transformers movie set is ancient Rome is also in the works.

• You can read more via the attached scans on this news post.


P.S: Additionally, we’ve included an image of the 6 Editors working on the new movie to be delivered in less than 5 weeks.

Hasbro confirms new Transformers animated movie and TV series
"GARY COLLINSON wrote:During its annual Media & Investor Day, Hasbro has confirmed that an animated Transformers feature film is in development for theatrical release, as well as a new animated series to follow Transformers: Robots In Disguise.

The theatrical film, the first since 1986’s The Transformers: The Movie, will reportedly explore the origin myth of the Transformers and will take place within the continuity of the live-action movie series. Hasbro also intends on releasing a theatrical animated movie each year, based on properties including Transformers, My Little Pony and Stretch Armstrong.

According to TFW2005, the new animated series will be titled Transformers: Cyberverse, and is a “redux” of Transformers G1, with a first season arriving in 2018 followed by a second in 2019.

Next up from the Transformers movie franchise is Transformers Universe: Bumblebee, which is set for release on December 21st 2018.
