TRANSFORMERS: New Live-Action Movie In The Works From THE DEFENDERS Showrunner And Angel Manuel Soto

Paramount is continuing to expand the Transformers franchise with the visions of new filmmakers, as The Defenders showrunner Marco Ramirez is teaming with Charm City Kings director Angel Manuel Soto...

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Paramount Pictures has made a "blind script commitment" to develop a new live-action Transformers movie from Marco Ramirez and Angel Manuel Soto. 

The latter directed Charm City Kings, while Ramirez served as showrunner on The Defenders. That crossover series was (mostly) well-received by comic book fans, and got a lot right about those characters. With that in mind, it feels like the Autobots and Decepticons are in safe hands here. 

Unfortunately, we have no plot details to share with you, as this untitled Transformers movie is in the very early stages of development. However, the trade reveals that "the project is being developed apart from the universe of the main line of Transformers films that Paramount has been making since 2007." 

Stephen Caple Jr.'s (Creed II) movie remains in development.

As for this one, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy, and Tom DeSanto, producers on all previous Transformers movies, are expected to play the same role here. Paramount Pictures is clearly looking to expand on this IP, while no doubt hoping they find the same commercial success Bay's movies did in the process (critics hated them, but his series grossed billions). 

We'll hopefully have more to share on this one for you soon, but it's definitely refreshing to see Paramount turn to some diverse voices in order to tell more of these Transformers stories.
