Paramount & Hasbro Hire Writers To Branch Out New 'Transformers' Movies

Paramount and Hasbro are still looking to cash in on the Transformers franchise as the companies have hired Joby Harold and James Vanderbilt to pen separate scripts as they pursue concurrent development. Details of the projects were not revealed, but the companies want to give the writers a chance to build out multiple storylines and to also expand the Transformers universe. The toy brand's underlying storyline is the seemingly never-ending battle between the good robots-who-can-turn-into-cars, Autobots, and the wicked robots-who-can-turn-into-military-hardware, Decepticons.

The latest Transformers movie, Bumblebee was released in December 2018. The movie was a 1980s-set spinoff focusing on one of most popular characters, though it generated the least of the entries, $468 million worldwide.

Joby Harold co-wrote the upcoming Zack Snyder zombie movie, Army of the Dead and is credited for writing and working on Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, John Wick: Chapter 2 and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Para Bellum.

James Vanderbilt is credited for writing David Fincher’s Zodiac and Netflix’s Adam Sandler hit, Murder Mystery. He also co-wrote the Andrew Garfield-starring Amazing Spider-Man movies and wrote and directed the newsroom drama Truth that starred Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford.
