It looks like four movies isn’t enough for the “Transformers” franchise.
According to Deadline, Paramount Pictures is reportedly negotiating with writer-director-producer Akiva Goldsman to organize a “writer’s room” to create ideas for future Transformers films and possibly spinoff films inspired by the toys.
Goldsman would work with Michael Bay, who directed all four movies in the franchise, along with executive producer Steven Spielberg and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura.
All four movies have been incredible moneymakers for Paramount. According to Box Office Mojo, the four movies grossed $3.7 billion worldwide, with the last film “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” netting $1.09 billion.
The franchise has been panned by critics, with “Age of Extinction” receiving the most Razzie nominations this year and “Revenge of the Fallen” being awarded the worst movie of 2009.
A fifth Transformers movie is expected to premiere next year.
