Lots of buzz going about in the Transformer World. We have several things buzzing in the last several months about how Transformers will be getting spin-offs that go into different verses and story-lines that potentially make up the current movie-verse we have today.
First up we know that Hasbro had filed for trademarking a year ago for “Transformers One” and yesterday things broke loose about the potential for a Animated Prequel that goes into the history of “Cybertron.”
EXCLUSIVE: Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari, who spent half a year doing the production rewriting on Marvel’s Ant-Man, have become the latest to join the writers room that Paramount Pictures and director Michael Bay have organized to hatch sequels, prequels and spinoffs on their billion-dollar Transformers franchise. I’m hearing that one of the ideas in the works has a working title of Transformers One and that it is more or less an origins story that takes place on Cybertron, the planet where the good-guy and bad-guy robots hail from. Those talks originated with rights holder Hasbro. I’ve also heard that this might be an animated feature but that Barrer & Ferrari are also going to the writers room with the expectation they’ll write a live-action Transformers movie as well. Paramount insiders said they haven’t gotten that far on the specific projects, but I am told this is the plan. A Cybertron movie sounds like fertile ground for a feature to me.
It certainly does feel like a good road to take considering it is working very well for Marvel Studios and their Avengers line up. Multiple universes, many diverse paths making up a grand storyline.
Transformers One is more than less probably not going to be the name of the movie. This trademark has been abandoned as of 9/24/2010. While its a plausible name, it is more than less more likely a “code name.” Given the history of movies, and shows it would be more likely to see Transformers Origins, or something along these lines.
