Transformers: Age of Extinction

People either love or hate the Transformers film franchise. On one hand, Michael Bay has helped bring the war between the Autobots and Decepticons to life; and on the other, we got to hear many variations of Shia LeBeouf saying “No, no, no.” But the popularity of the source material is one of Paramount’s cash cows, and now they will be extending it as they have announced that Transformers 5 will be hitting theaters in 2016.

Paramount made the sequel announcement recently at a film conference in Europe. Other titles announced for 2016 include: Star Trek 3, G.I. Joe 3, Beverly Hills Cop 4, Hansel and Gretel 2, and Paranormal Activity 5. Hit the jump for more info.

Star Trek Into Darkness: Spock and Kirk

Now that J.J. Abrams is hard at work making Star Wars: Episode VII, Paramount Pictures and Skydance were in need of a new director for the third movie in their rebooted Star Trek franchise. Abrams directed the first two movies, 2009’s Star Trek and 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness.

In what could be considered a risky move, the studios have decided not to find an established big Hollywood blockbuster director to bring in. In fact, they’re not even bringing in an up-and-coming director who might be ready to break out. Instead, it has been decided to hire writer Roberto Orci to direct Star Trek 3.

Star Trek Into Darkness: Spock and Kirk

But who will replace Abrams? That’s a question that still exists, but according to a report, Paramount is looking at Attack the Block director Joe Cornish for the job.

Star Trek Into Darkness: Spock and Kirk

Paramount is eyeing a 2016 release for Star Trek 3, with or without J.J. Abrams at the helm. Most likely it will be the latter — one person from the cast hopes that he will make a return, but more on that later. For obvious reasons, one of them being that Abrams is busy working on Star Wars: Episode VII, the director will be unable to come back for a third helping seeing that there are some major scheduling conflicts. So the studio have their sights set on other names in hopes that they will fill in, now that Abrams has jumped to the other Star franchise.

LatinoReview is reporting that G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu is one of the frontrunners to direct the third Trek movie. Also, Star Trek‘s Karl Urban wants the third film to be more original and go back to basics. Hit the jump for more.

J.J. Abrams

Sometimes it pays to be a little bit subtle, but when it comes to something like the Star Wars and Star Trek franchises, it doesn’t because people want answers now. So leave it to Playboy to ask the questions, and leave it to J.J. Abrams to stand his ground and skirt around questions that everyone wants to know.

Check out what he had to say about both franchises here after the jump.

While the director wouldn’t talk about plot specifics, he did talk about how he would approach making Star Wars: Episode VII:

“Here’s the thing. I try to approach a project from what it’s asking. What does it need to be? What is it demanding? With Star Wars, one has to take into account what has preceded it, what worked, what didn’t. There are cautionary tales for anything you take on that has a legacy—things you look at and think, I want to avoid this or that, or I want to do more of something. But even that feels like an outside-in approach, and it’s not how I work. For me, the key is when you have a script; it’s telling you what it wants to be.”
