[ New Transformers Movie Is In The Works ]
A new Transformers movie is in development. According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Angel Manuel Soto and writer Marco Ramirez have been hired to work on the film.
THR states that this movie will be separate from the main universe of Transformers movies featured in Michael Bay's five films and the spin-off Bumblebee. Further details about the project are currently unknown.
Soto made his feature debut with the acclaimed drama Charm City King, and was recently announced as the director of the Blue Beetle movie for DC. Ramirez is best known as the showrunner of the Marvel Netflix series The Defenders, and he also wrote episodes of Daredevil, The Twilight Zone, and Fear of the Walking Dead.
This isn't the only Transformers movie in the works either. In November last year, it was reported that Creed II director Steven Caple Jr is also developing a new film in the series.
There's also a new Transformers animated series on the way. Last month it was confirmed that it is being produced by Nickelodeon, and will be a 26-episode "action-comedy series" that focuses on a new species of transforming robots. The final season of the animated Netflix show Transformers: War For Cybertron is also expected later this year.
