After releasing five films in the franchise, Paramount Pictures is reportedly planning to revamp the Transformers series with two new scripts in development.
Sources tell Variety that Paramount Pictures has tasked Murder Mystery’s James Vanderbilt and Army of the Dead’s Joby Harold with creating two new Transformers scripts for two separate films. However, there has not been any official announcement from Paramount Pictures at the time of writing.

The Transformers franchise launched in 2007 and is worth an estimated 4 billion dollars. The most recent film, Bumblebee, received a fair amount of critical acclaim and pulled in over $450 million in box offices worldwide.
It is currently unclear if either of the upcoming films will be set in the same universe as Bumblebee, or if the series will be receiving a fresh start. While little is known about the upcoming Transformers revamp, Variety sources state that it will aim to open up the door for upcoming additions to the franchise.
At this time, neither script has a director or cast attached to it. Further, it’s likely that the series revamp will feature a brand-new set of cast members according to Variety, but again, no announcements have been made at this time.
