The ‘Transformers’ franchise has just received news now that Paramount Pictures has released the name of the writer and director of the franchise’s new film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio has hired Marco Ramirez to write the feature film, which will be directed by Angel Manuel Soto (“Charm Cuty Kings”).
For those unfamiliar with the duo, Ramirez was a screenwriter and showrunner for “ The Defenders, ” a Marvel series in partnership with Netflix that was canceled in 2018.
Soto is known for his work on low budget films, such as the dramas ’22 Weeks’ and ‘La Carta’, and was also recently cast as the director of the upcoming adaptation of ‘The Blue Beetle’.
Still without many details, the new title will not be in the same universe as the previous ones.
So far there is no premiere date.
Recalling that Steven Caple Jr. (‘Creed 2’) was also chosen to take on the post of director of another feature film. Apparently the plot will be a sequel to ‘Bumblebee’ (2018), with a screenplay written by Joby Harold (‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’). It has been said that the studio is only waiting for a director to continue with the project, but it was not revealed when the cameras are on.
Paramount also intends to expand the franchise with the spinoff titled “ Beast Wars, ” which had a script written by James Vanderbilt (“ The Spectacular Spider-Man ”), but the project continues with no news.
Vanderbilt also wrote and produced “Mystery in the Mediterranean,” a Netflix project starring Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. His recent work also includes the acclaimed horror comedy “Ready or Not” and the series “Altered Carbon”.
Harold, in turn, oversaw ‘John Wick 3 – Parabellum’ and signed Zack Snyder’s new project, ‘Army of the Dead’ and rewrote the screenplay for ‘Kenobi’, the upcoming Disney + series inspired by the saga ‘ Star Wars’.
Launched in 2007, the “Transformers” film saga has always had considerable box office performances, despite negative reviews from most films. Led by Michael Bay, the first five chapters grossed more than $ 4.3 billion, while the spin-off ‘Bumblebee’, led by Travis Knight, got 92% approval on Rotten Tomatoes and grossed nearly $ 469 million.
