Transformers to expand films into Cinematic Universe

Big news today, fans, as Paramount has tapped Oscar winning writer Akiva Goldman to expand the Transformers film franchise into a Marvel-style expanded universe.

According to Deadline, Paramount is looking to cash-in big time by adding prequels, multi-part sequels, and spinoffs to the fold.

Paramount Pictures wants more Transformers. Taking a page from Fox’s incubation of three Avatar sequels and what Disney is doing to revive Star Wars with a sequels and spinoffs, the studio is negotiating with Akiva Goldsman to work with franchise director Michael Bay, exec producer Steven Spielberg and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura to organize a “writer’s room” that will incubate ideas for a potential multi-part Transformers sequel, and come up with potential spinoff films based on the billion-dollar franchise culled from the Hasbro toy line.

What does this mean for the future of the Transformers film franchise? More movies than you can shake a stick at? Oversaturation? I guess we’ll see!
