New Transformers Animated Origin Movie Rumored & More



Recently, it's become known that Hasbro and Paramount are building a Transformers Cinematic Universe, which will be overseen by Akiva Goldsman with a writer's room consisting of Robert Kirkman, Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, Zak Penn and Jeff Pinkner.

Now two more names have been added to the list with Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, who recently spent a half a year doing the production rewriting on Marvel’s Ant-Man.

Deadline reports Barrer and Ferrari may be penning a new Transformers animated movie, which would be an origin set on Cybertron with a tentative title "Transformers One." It's also said Barrer an Ferrari are planning on doing a live-action Transformers movie as well.

It's said while Paramount hasn't gotten that far on the specific projects, this is the plan to date.

Regarding the next live-action Transformers movie, it's reported the goal is to have the sequel to Transformers: Age Of Extinction ready for when Michael Bay completes directing 13 Hours, with other Transformers projects ready to follow.

The original animated Transformers: The Movie premiered in 1986 which killed off Optimus Prime and ushered in a new era of Transformers.
