Paramount Pictures has dated a new live-action Transformers film for June 2022.
The Hollywood Reporter learned on Friday that the Transformers franchise will continue to expand, with a brand new film hitting cinemas in two short years. Set to hit June 24, 2022, details on this untitled live-action Transformers film are pretty much nonexistent. Currently, there are two Transformers project in development at Paramount but it’s unclear which will make into production.
According to Deadline, the first project is from Murder Mystery writer James Vanderbilt. The project from Vanderbilt is reportedly focused on the Transformers spin-off Beasts Wars, which are robots that transform into robotic animals. The other project comes from Army of the Dead writer Joby Harold. There aren’t any concrete details on the Harold project, though it’s reportedly set in the Bumblebee universe that director Travis Knight helped herald.
Earlier in the year, it was confirmed that Paramount was working on two distinctive scripts for the Transformers franchise, with one set to be a full-on reboo and the other being a sequel to Bumblebee. It’s unclear if plans for the reboot have changed. Meanwhile, Paramount is also taking the Transformers franchise back to its animated roots with a prequel film from director Josh Cooley, who last worked on Toy Story 4.
