Since Paramount announced that they would be building a shared universe for the Transformers franchise led by the brain trust of Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg, and Lorenzo di Bonaventura, the studio has been actively looking for writers who could write for the upcoming sequels and spinoffs. Akiva Goldsman has been charged with mapping out the future of the franchise, and now Paramount and Hasbro has found the group of writers that will help Goldsman work out the scripts for these sequels and spinoffs.

According to Deadline, The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Iron Man scribes Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, Pacific Rim 2‘s Zak Penn, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Lost‘s Jeff Pinkner are the new team that will write the Transformers expanded universe. More below.

Transformers: Age of Extinction poster crop

Despite Transformers: Age of Extinction being one of the lowest grossing of all the live-action Transformer films, the franchise will be getting a fifth installment. Recent news of the franchise forming a story trust to expand for possible crossovers (though not one with G.I. Joe) would allow for endless – yet possibly mindless action-filled possibilities. We’re not really sure what to make of Transformers 5, due to the fact that development on the film has been inactive. Now we are getting word that Hasbro is eyeing Transformers 5 for a 2017 release.

Transformers: Age of Extinction

Disney has Marvel and Star Wars, Warner Bros has DC and LEGO, and Sony has Ghostbusters and possibly Spider-Man. So it was only a matter of time before Paramount gets into the game by building a cinematic universe around their franchises, and they will start off with one of their more lucrative franchises: Transformers.

The studio will hire Akiva Goldsman to help map out the new Transformers universe, and Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg, and Lorenzo di Bonaventura will act as executive producers/brain trust. More on this after the jump.

Superman Lives

In January of last year Jon Schnepp, a Los Angeles-based director of the Adult Swim series Metalocalypse and The Venture Brothers as well as a contributor to the horror anthology feature The ABCs of Death, created a Kickstarter page to raise funds for a documentary he hoped to make about an aborted attempt to reboot the Superman franchise in the late 1990s. After raising the budget necessary to proceed Schnepp managed to secure interviews with several of the principal players and now The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? is very much a reality.

Schnepp has released the first trailer for the film, which you watch here below.

Dwyane Johnson in G.I. Joe Realiation

News on G.I. Joe 3 has been light, with Jon Chu moving on to direct Jem and the Holograms and Paramount announcing that the sequel would be hitting theaters in 2016. Other than those two bits of news, development has been slow going.

Now it’s being reported that the sequel has a new writer, and the film will be more focused on Dwayne Johnson‘s Roadblock character. Hit the jump for more.

‘G.I. Joe 3’ Gets The Green Light From Paramount

G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Obviously a nine-month delay didn’t hurt the box office gross for G.I. Joe Retaliation. The Jon Chu film was the number one film at the box office earning upwards to $41 million, and since those kinds of numbers bring a smile to any studio head, it’s no surprise that there is going to be a G.I. Joe 3 in the works.

Variety confirmed the story, which seemed highly unlikely given the critical reaction the film received when it was originally scheduled for a summer 2012 release and the nine-month delay that was ordered for the film to undergo 3D conversions. But since the film was successful, not so much from a critical standpoint, we are getting a third G.I. Joe film.

Keira Knightley Joins The Cast Of The ‘Jack Ryan’ Prequel

Keira Knightley Header

It wasn’t too long ago that Keira Knightley, Evangeline Lilly, and Felicity Jones were all vying for the role of Jack Ryan’s wife in the upcoming Jack Ryan reboot. Now director and star Kenneth Branagah and Paramount have made their choice and they are going with Keira Knightley. Though the actress has much more cinematic experience than any of the other two – which may or may not have factored into the decision – either of the two actress that weren’t picked would have been excellent choices.

Knightley will play Jack Ryan’s wife in the film. It has been reported that this role will require some involvement in the action sequences in the film, something that was never really seen from any of the other actresses who portrayed Jack Ryan’s wife in the previous installments. Jack Ryan will be played by Chris Pine, who has been long attached to play the role.

Kenneth Branagh

Kenneth Branagh is no stranger to directing and playing a character in the same movie. He’s pulled double duty in Hamlet and Henry V. The filmmaker who had replaced Jack Bender as director of the currently untitled upcoming Jack Ryan film will now apparently have a role in it as well.

Branagh will be playing the villain in the movie, starring opposite of Chris Pine, who is attached to play the titular Jack Ryan character.

Producer Confirms Michael Bay For ‘Transformers 4’; Says Movie Will Be A Hybrid Reboot

Transformers

Whether or not another Transformers movie would be made or not was never really a question—the franchise has made over $2.5 billion at the box office, the latest installment, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, bringing in more than $1.1 billion alone. The real question was whether Michael Bay would return to direct for a fourth time, and what cast would be returning.

Now we have some answers by way of producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who spoke to MTV recently. The producer said that Bay will indeed be returning to direct Transformers 4, and that the movie would be arriving some time in 2014. This has since been confirmed by Paramount Pictures, who sent out a press release announcing Bay’s involvement and a June 29, 2014 release date.

‘Space Invaders’ Is The Next Classic Game To Get A Movie Treatment

The Movie God   |  @   |

Unless you’ve been hibernating for the last decade or two, you know that Hollywood will make a movie based on pretty much any video game, toy, or theme park ride. It’s something that we’ve grown used to over the years, and sometimes the movies actually end up being a lot of fun.

The next classic game to get the movie treatment is one that any game fan born before 1990 has most likely played at least once in their lifetime: Space Invaders.

The arcade game comes from designer Tomohiro Nishikado, and was first released by Japanese company Taito Corporation in 1978, and then in the United States through Midway Games.
