Paramount Pictures has officially announced the next Transformers film will be released on June 24th, 2022.
However, which project this will be hasn’t been made clear.
There are a couple of features in development stages which include a Beast Wars project from screenwriter James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and another film set in the Bumblebee universe penned by Joby Harold (Army of The Dead).
It was also recently announced that an “animated” film set on Cybertron would be directed by Josh Cooley (Toy Story 4), which sounds like it much further along in development than the other projects. They’ve had a script from Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari for a while now.
I would have to lean towards the Josh Cooley project as the other Transformers films don’t officially have directors announced/attached.
What do you think the 2022 Transformers release will be “live-action” or “animated”?
BUMBLEBEE – On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.
