Two different entertainment websites are reporting that both a new animated Transformers movie and a live-action Transformers movie are in development.
From the Hollywood Reporter:
An untitled Transformers film and The Trial of the Chicago 7 have been given release dates, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The latest installment in the sci-fi action film franchise, the untitled Transformers movie will receive a wide release on June 24, 2022.
Paramount currently has multiple Transformers projects in the works: Joby Harold (Army of the Dead) and James Vanderbilt (Zodiac) have been tapped to write separate scripts in the story universe, while the studio is also moving forward with an animated prequel directed by Josh Cooley (Toy Story 4), with a script co-written by Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari (the Ant-Man franchise).
Meanwhile Deadline reports that one of the projects in development may be based off of Beast Wars:
The studio is in development on two different projects: one by Murder Mystery scribe James Vanderbilt and the other by John Wick Chapter 3 EP and Army of the Dead scribe Joby Harold. The Vanderbilt project, from what weâ€™ve heard, is based on Transformers spinoff Beast Wars which are robots that transform into robotic animals like Cheetor (Cheetah), Optimus Primal (Gorilla), Rhinox (Rhinoceros) and more. The other is reportedly in the Bumblebee universe. Itâ€™s not definite yet which one will make it to production.
