Transformers director Michael Bay reveals Paramount has 14 sequel ideas, one of which he may return to helm.
At a special fan screening of preview footage from Transformers: The Last Knight, Michael Bay revealed that there are plans for no less than 14 stories for potential transition to the screen within the Transformers universe. Bay appeared via a pre-recorded intro to the footage where he revealed the news of the new stories, which had come out of the development process for the current film. Even though he previously said (again) this will be his last film in the franchise, he says one of the several ideas they have developed has piqued his interest.
“There are 14 stories written and there’s good stuff. I would like to do one of them though… A Transformers spinoff.”
It's expected that these tales will include sequels as well as spin-offs such as the dedicated Bumblebee film which is set to be directed by Travis Knight (the filmmaker behind Laika hit Kubo and the Two Strings). Michael also elaborated that the ideas had been outlined in the writer's room during a development process designed to "lay the groundwork for the future of the series," reports Yahoo! Movies.
These future 14 movies theoretically would allow the franchise to expand further, bringing in more characters and maybe even exploring places beyond Earth. If Paramount embraces the literal universe at their disposal, maybe Transformers can regain favor with audiences once again.
Here’s the plot outline for the next official Transformers sequel, which is said to be Bay’s last as director.
The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock). There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.
Transformers: The Last Knight will be released 23 June. Stream all the Transformers movie online for free here by simply scrolling down for the movie track list.
