Transformers cinematic universe: more writers, origins pic

8 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Transformers One looks set to take us to Cybertron, as more people sign up for the Transformers cinematic universe...

Paramount continues to add personnel to its planned Transformers cinematic universe, as it's recruited another pair of writers to join the assorted projects it has in the works.

The studio has opted for a writers' room approach to its next swathe of Transformers films, with Akiva Goldsman heading it up. Also on board are The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Zak Penn (The Incredible Hulk), Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man) and Jeff Pinkner (Lost).

Now added to the fold are Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, who spent the best part of six months doing production rewrites on Marvel's Ant-Man movie.

The immediate priority for this hive of writers is to have a screenplay for Transformers 5 in place once director Michael Bay is done with his latest movie, 13 Hours. And »

Transformers Writing Team Developing Cybertron-Based Origin Story

18 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

You may have already seen the story about Michael Bay and the other Transformers producers tasking Akiva Goldsman with assembling a writing team to hash out more films and essentially construct a shared universe for different stories to work in. Deadline reports that Ant-Man writers Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari are joining the group. The pair, who completed an uncredited production re-write on the Marvel movie about the shrinking superhero (based on work that Adam McKay and Paul Rudd did to Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish’s original script), joins a team that already includes Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Iron Man co-writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, Lost/Fringe man Jeff Pinkner and The Incredible Hulk’s Zak Penn.And according to Deadline’s story, one of the big ideas being batted around is crafting an origin story for the Autobots and Decepticons that would explore their early days on Cybertron, »

Will the Next 'Transformers' Movie Be a Prequel?

21 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Thanks to the massive success of the Marvel movies, every franchise now wants their own "Marvel-style universe" - including "Transformers," which is assembling a "writers room" to plot their next steps.

Deadline reports that "Ant-Man" writers Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari have joined a team headed by Akiva Goldsman and including "Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirman" and "Lost" writer Jeff Pinkner. And it seems the first idea to come out of the brain trust is for a prequel set on Cybertron.

The goal of the writers room is to prep a movie to be ready when Michael Bay finishes filming the Benghazi drama "13 Hours." It's an interesting idea to assemble a TV-style team like this, to brainstorm future sequels, prequels, spinoffs, or even reboots.

"Transformers One" would be an origin story about the robots, good and evil. It could be an animated film or live-action. A prequel could be a merchandising bonanza for Hasbro, »

TV Review: ‘Sense8′

27 May 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s easy to see why Netflix would jump at a series from the Wachowskis and science-fiction writer J. Michael Straczynski, even if the credits are a spellchecker’s nightmare. Yet while the streaming service was no doubt hoping for “The Matrix,” in commercial terms, it wound up with something closer to “Jupiter Ascending” and “Cloud Atlas” — or worse, its own “Marco Polo.” A dense sci-fi construct that’s poorly explained through three episodes, “Sense8” bears some resemblance to Fox’s short-lived “Touch,” infusing a sense of global interconnectedness with mystical mumbo-jumbo. But the main problem, simply, is that the show doesn’t make much sense.

The extra-long premiere opens by seeking to establish the basic premise, which involves eight disparate people — ethnically diverse and geographically spread across the world — being joined in a vague manner that allows them to share experiences and knowledge. That opens, somewhat promisingly, with their »

San Andreas Review

27 May 2015 4:07 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Brad Peyton.

Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Ioan Gruffudd, Archie Panjabi, Paul Giamatti, Kylie Minogue

Certificate: 12A

Running Time: 114 minutes

Synopsis: After a devastating earthquake hits California, a Los Angeles Fire Department rescue-helicopter pilot (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) and his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) attempt to leave Los Angeles and head to San Francisco to find and rescue their daughter (Alexandra Daddario).

San Andreas joins a long list of disaster movies that have been hurtled our way over the past few years; from the heights of Irwin Allen’s epics of the 1960s and 1970s (see The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, The Poseidon Adventure), to the more recent CGI affairs, most of which were thrown at the screen by German director Roland Emmerich (2012, The Day After Tomorrow). While most of those movies relied on high-octane effects and a multitude of characters led by one or two big name stars, »

First Photo of Danny Trejo in From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series

26 May 2015 1:18 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Throughout his career, Danny Trejo's played a wide range of intimidating characters that steal scenes with their powerful presences, and his upcoming role as The Regulator in Robert Rodriguez's From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series looks to be no exception.

Press Release -- "El Rey Network and Miramax released a first-look image of "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series" featuring Danny Trejo (Machete, Machete Kills) in his new role as"The Regulator," a horrifying agent of evil who is summoned to perform a deadly errand. Trejo appeared in the "From Dusk Till Dawn" film franchise as "Razor Charlie." Currently in production on its sophomore season, "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series" is slated to return late Summer 2015.

Trejo has had a prolific career in the entertainment industry, yet his road to success has been hard earned and anything but typical, spanning imprisonment to helping young people battle drug addiction, »

First look at Danny Trejo as The Regulator in From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series

26 May 2015 10:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Danny Trejo is set to return to the world of From Dusk Till Dawn later this summer in the second season of El Rey’s TV adaptation of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s cult feature, and we’ve got the first image of the tattooed tough guy in the new role of The Regulator…

Season two of the show expands the universe across two borders from Mexico to Texas, and deepens and complicates the core relationships between the characters, while adding new faces and dynamics. Season Two begins with our characters in their separate worlds – Santánico (Eiza González) and Richie (Zane Holtz) are outside Houston, living like Bonnie and Clyde; Seth (D.J. Cotrona) and Kate (Madison Davenport) are scraping by in the South of the Border; Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia) is protecting his wife and young daughter in a Houston suburb: and Carlos Madrigal (Wilmer Valderrama) and Scott Fuller »

What Happened to Disney's 'Tomorrowland' at the Box Office?

25 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

We're at a weird place in Hollywood history, one where an original idea, executed by some of the industry's most successful writers and directors, and starring an A-list leading man, is considered an almost foolish risk -- especially in a summer season marked by blockbuster sequels that are considered safe by comparison. So it is with "Tomorrowland," Disney's big question mark of a Memorial Day weekend movie.

It was actually easier to predict how the reboot of a 33-year-old horror franchise ("Poltergeist") would open this weekend, or the sequel to a franchise whose last installment came out 30 years ago ("Mad Max: Fury Road") would open last weekend, than to guess how "Tomorrowland" would do. Indeed, predictions for "Fury Road" and "Poltergeist" (which opened this weekend with an estimated $23.0 million) were almost exactly on target. "Tomorrowland," however, opened on the low end of expectations, with an estimated $32.2 million through Sunday and »

Eurovision Song Contest 2015 – as it happened

Would UK entry Electro Velvet fare better than our last duo Jemini, who got nul points in 2003? How did special guest Australia get on? Stuart Heritage was there for every last Eurovision second

11.57pm BST

And now we are done. Sincerest congratulations to Sweden, and commiserations to all the other contestants, uniformly doomed as they are to become embedded YouTube clips in endless ‘What the hell was all that about’ Eurovision precursor articles a decade from now.

Now, while we go through our own individual post-Eurovision decompression routines – I don’t know about you, but mine involves putting my head into a metal bin and shouting ‘Why?’ over and over again until I tumble into the comforting arms of unconsciousness – it’s time for me to thank you.

Tomorrowland – The Review

22 May 2015 5:14 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Dana Jung

Of all the “lands” at Disneyland/Disney World (the others are Frontierland, Adventureland, and Fantasyland in case you’ve forgotten), Tomorrowland holds the most promise to an impressionable youth. With visions of Buck Rogers rayguns and Jetsons flying machines, the park promises more than it delivers, with its slow “people-movers” and static displays of smart homes and fashions of the future. Except for Space Mountain—a truly incredible roller coaster ride—this park is at once the most visually stimulating, and the most unexciting. The new film Tomorrowland shares some of these qualities, but is the end result a wild coaster ride of a popcorn movie, or a rehash of stale ideas about a utopian future?

Britt Robertson (Under The Dome, The Longest Ride) plays Casey, a smart and capable teenager living in a single-parent household consisting of her caring father (Tim McGraw) and not-so-annoying little brother (Pierce Gagnon, »

Carlton Cuse Talks Origins of Colony, World War II Influence, and Tone

21 May 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If you haven't heard of Carlton Cuse, you almost certainly have watched a show or film that he's been crucially involved in. For most viewers, his name is synonymous with J.J. Abrams' Lost, where he served as both a regular writer and producer, and he's recently been one of the major creative forces behind both Bates Motel and A&E's recent English remake of The Returned. Most recently, he penned the script for San Andreas, Brad Peyton's upcoming disaster film which stars Dwayne Johnson and Carla Gugino, but these projects are hardly the only thing on Cuse's radar right now. Cuse is producing The Strain Season 2, which bows July 12th, but more importantly, he's prepping Colony, a brand new science fiction series for USA. Steve got a chance to sit down with Cuse recently to discuss a number of projects, including San Andreas and his television work, and »

Tomorrowland Review

21 May 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Brad Bird

Cast: George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy, Thomas Robinson, Hugh Laurie

Running time: 130 minutes

Certificate: PG

Synopsis: Bound by a shared destiny, a teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory.

What if the world’s best scientists, inventors, artists and craftsmen were gathered up and taken to another world, free to create sensational new ideas away from distractions, politics and greed. Those are the ideologies that seduce young child genius Frank Walker (Thomas Robinson), fresh from inventing an almost-working jet pack in 1946, as he discovers this hidden world, dubbed Tomorrowland, thanks to an invitation from Athena (Raffey Cassidy) who sees Frank’s inventing potential. Fast forward to the present day and an older, wiser, and much grumpier Frank (George Clooney) is living »

Robert Kirkman, Zak Penn and more hired to write Transformers sequels and spin-offs

20 May 2015 11:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in March, Paramount announced its plans to form a Transformers shared movie universe using both direct sequels and spin-offs. Producer Akiva Goldsman will head up a “brain trust” to wrangle the various creative threads of each installment, and now he’s found his team.

According to Deadline, The Walking Dead creator Robert KirkmanIron Man scribes Art Marcum and Matt HollowayPacific Rim writer Zak Penn and Lost‘s Jeff Pinkner have been brought on board to pen the scripts for the upcoming films. The report cites them as “Goldman’s four-team roster,” which could indicate that they’ve been brought on to work on separate projects.

Now that the brain trust has been assembled, we can expect more news about what films they’ll work on in the near future. As of right now, all we know for sure is that Paramount hopes to have Transformers 5 in »

Transformers cinematic universe writing team revealed

20 May 2015 10:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman is one of five new writers to sign up for the Transformers movie universe...

It was back in March that we learned Paramount was to look beyond making mere sequels to Transformers movies, in favour of going down a broader cinematic universe route. Thus, whilst a follow-up to Transformers: Age Of Extinction is still very much on the cards, the idea is also to explore spin-off features. You never know, we could end up with at least a Transformers film a year if this all goes to plan. That'll go down well.

Anyway, there's been progress. Paramount has assembled a team of writers to bring its Transformers plan to life. We already knew that Akiva Goldsman had signed up to create writer's room for the Transformers cinematic universe, and now we know the identity of five of the writers to sit in it.

What the 'Transformers' writers room means about the new shape of Hollywood

20 May 2015 6:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

So that's what the Transformers writer's room is going to look like, eh? While I don't tally the worth of a writer based on how many news stories they break, I will admit that I was deeply irritated when the story was first written about the notion of Akiva Goldsman spearheading a team of writers to develop "Transformers" sequels. I'd been tipped about it a few weeks earlier, and I was trying to get a second source I trusted, either at the studio or on the agency side of things. I pushed, and while I was sure the story was right, I couldn't run it. Excruciating. Part of my hesitance was that I didn't want to be wrong on a story like that because it's a threat more than anything. Goldsman and Bay breaking story together? Holy cow. Now Deadline's got a list of names they say are the final hires, »

Transformers Sequels and Spinoffs Land Robert Kirkman, Zak Penn, and More

20 May 2015 3:33 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As if movies weren't being treated like TV episodes enough, Paramount Picture recently set into motion a plan to put together a “writer’s room” for its Transformers series. The braintrust of Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg, and Lorenzo di Bonaventura set screenwriter/producer Akiva Goldsman to oversee a group of writers that would develop ideas and scripts for Transformers sequels and spinoffs, and now that writers room has been set. Per Deadline, The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Punisher: War Zone scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway, The Incredible Hulk screenwriter Zak Penn, and Lost alum Jeff Pinkner will fill out the roster of Goldsman’s Transformers team. Somewhat tellingly, both Kirkman and Pinkner have deep ties to the television world (Kirkman now has two Walking Dead shows at AMC), though Pinkner made the leap to feature films with last year’s Amazing Spider-Man 2. Penn also has strong ties to genre material, »

'Tomorrowland' (2015) Movie Review

20 May 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm quite certain you could lop off the first 20-30 minutes of Tomorrowland and never notice. Then again, the same could probably be said for the final 80-90 minutes. There is little to no point to this movie other than to throw a plastic-wrapped vision of imagination and invention alongside a ham-fisted environmental message down our throats with all the subtlety of James Cameron's Avatar, but Cameron had the good sense to at least develop a story around his preaching whereas Tomorrowland beats around the bush until finally allowing Hugh Laurie to belt out his sermon before delivering the film's ultimate finale with a big dull thud. Director Brad Bird (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Ratatouille), who co-wrote the film's screenplay with Damon Lindelof ("Lost", Prometheus), spends nearly a quarter of the film's running time introducing us to the young inventor Frank Walker (Thomas Robinson).

"Tomorrowland" Scribe Dismisses The Haters

20 May 2015 7:31 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Brad Bird's "Tomorrowland" has already screened for critics and has received decidedly mixed reviews so far. Criticisms have been targeted at the film's problematic structure with both beloved filmmaker Brad Bird and writer Damon Lindelof coming under fire.

Lindelof of course has become something of a whipping boy in the geek/fanboy community for his work on "Lost," "Prometheus" and "Star Trek Into Darkness" which themselves received mixed reviews and were criticised for their scripts. In a new interview with Vulture though, Lindelof effectively dismisses any criticism that has been or will be thrown at the film by geeks suggesting that they will enjoy it but won't be able to admit it in order to score brownie points with their peers:

"There's this great thing in all of us where we want to hope, we want to believe. But then what happens? We saw that hope with Obama's first election … and then, »
