Nice! Can't wait!
I wouldn’t be surprised (if this movie does 100% happen for 2019) that Knight will be announced as director for this one, too.
But we don't know if he have experience like Michael Bay.
That's what concern me too
The fact that it’s involving Paramount and Allspark pictures, is part of the cinematic universe, and deals with origins says to me that it is same movie that was referred to literally once as “Transformers One”, given that this was more or less the same description. I fail to see how if can definitely be part of the cinematic universe while having something to do with Cyberverse at the same time (other than it’s Boulder media animating both, but by totally different teams). I can’t see the. Making two totally separate origin prequels.
I love how articles say something’s ‘confirmed’ when the direct quote says ‘hope(fully)’
Travis Knight has never directed a big budget live action movie before. Bumblebee is the first live action he'll directed. But Bumblebee is small scale transformers movie
AllSpark Pictures is Hasbro's movie division, nothing more. Technically, it has two movies under its belt already; the extremely short lived live-action Jem (which was only in theatres for two weeks and broke several records for being one of the biggest bombs ever produced) and the MLP film.
Paramount is no stranger to animated films either.
HE SAID "I HОPE". It didn't confirm anything.
That doesn’t really mean anything, though. There’s been a trend lately of hiring smaller directors to helm bigger ‘blockbuster’ type movies.
I’m not saying it will be Knight, but I wouldn’t rule it out. Especially after giving him the keys to Bumblebee (heh....).
If we go by history on other people, it could go either way.
-Chris Miller and Phil Lord directed Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs as their film directorial debut before moving onto 21 Jump Street, a live action movie based on the TV show.
-Tim Miller only did visual stuff on movies like Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Thor: The Dark World before getting the gig to do Deadpool.
-Chad Stahelski was only a stunts man before he did John Wick.
Or this one being the most similar with what Knight is doing right now....
-Andrew Stanton, who directed so many Pixar movies like Finding Nemo or WALL-E did John Carter.
Well, at least 3 out of 4 worked well...
Sometimes people forget just how little in Hollywood is set in stone. The release date of movies can be moved. A studio like Universal can announce a whole slew of movies for their Dark Universe only to put the breaks on all those plans when The Mummy bombed. Things in the movie business aren't static so studios have to constantly adapt to where things are going in the movie business. It's no wonder people have to use words like I hope.
If they don't find a new director fast, it's more likely to be pushed back for 2020.
Or late 2019
Transformers Cinematic Universe Is Over, Current Movie Series To Be Rebooted - Transformers News - TFW2005
Ding doing the witch is dead! So glad that the story is over. Time for a new story designed from the ground up to be an expansive universe.
That doesn't sound like they're rebooting. Nowhere in there does it say reboot. Just means they aren't releasing the next film on 2019 which is good because it gives them more time to develop it.
I was there. They specifically said that they are going to RESET the series after Bumblebee the movie. A new team will handle Transformers movies from now on and Hasbro will have more say.... including greenlighting the scripts.
But did they mean REBOOT the story and universe, or RESET the development and production? Two different things.
