The rumors surrounding Transformers 5 refuses to die down. Transformers: Age of Extinction was one of the most successful films of 2013 and by the looks of it, Paramount Pictures is going all out to make sure that Transformers 5 is better than that.
In order to give Transformers 5 a solid backing from the plot, Paramount has hired a team of the best scriptwriters present in the industry, to be headed by none other than the Oscar winning scriptwriter, Akiva Goldsman. He has in his team of writers working on the script of Transformers 5, Art Marcum, Jeff Pinkner, Robert Kirkman, Matt Holloway, Steven DeKnight and Zak Penn to name a few.
There were reports that the writers’ room has been going back to the history of the franchise and getting to know the roots of the story from the cartoon and the merchandise that the franchise has developed. The writers want to create a plot that the fans are familiar with, but never could imagine seeing on the big screen.
Mark Ryan, who has been the voice for Jetfire in Transformers; Revenge of the Fallen and did the voice for Lockdown in Transformers: Age of Extinction has revealed at the Wings and Wheels convention in that the story line for Transformers 5 will go ahead in two very different directions.
One of the plots will deal with Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) and the Dinobots, as they save their planet from an alien threat with the help of some of the Autobots. The second plot will see Optimus Primes heading out to space to deal with the Quintessons. This is where the last part of Transformers: Age of Extinction had hinted at.
There are speculations that Transformers 5 is going to show the much coveted encounter between Optimus Prime and Unicron, which the fans of the franchise and desperately waiting for.
Mark Ryan, however, couldn’t confirm if the writers were indeed thinking in this line even now and if this is actually going to be the plot for the movie when it comes out, but we have Mark Wahlberg constantly saying that he is going to be back to reprise his role in Transformers 5.
Paramount Pictures is riding high on the success of the Transformers franchise and they are planning to expand the universe even further. There were talks that the movie will also be a crossover with G.I Joe.
Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura did confirm plans for a crossover film, but he said that Transformers 5 has enough steam to continue on their own for now and will not be teaming up with any other universe in the near future. He said that there are possibilities of a crossover, but not yet.
According to Movie Pilot, Paramount Pictures is planning on a twelve part sequel for the Transformers franchise and for that they require more than just any director and a scriptwriter. With Akiva Goldsman and Michael Bay on board and with a backing from the likes of Steven Spielberg and Lorenzo di Bonaventura, it seems like Paramount has found the best team for the job.
In an interview Akiva Goldsman revealed that the writers are going through all the toys, TV shows and everything Hasbro has created when it comes to Transformers to create a mythological time line for the franchise. Goldsman even said that the writers are interested in the Beast Wars and they are still working on that.
