Paramount Pictures has started working on a new Transformers movie.
The studio has hired Marco Ramirez, the showrunner of Netflix’s Marvel show The Defenders, to write the script of the movie, as per The Hollywood Reporter.
Filmmaker Angel Manuel Soto, known for 2020 teen drama Charm City Kings, has also boarded the team as the director.
The project is still in its earliest stages, with Ramirez taking a fresh approach that will not connect to the Transformers movies, directed by Michael Bay, or Travis Knight’s 2019 blockbuster spin-off feature Bumblebee.
It was reported last year that Creed 2 director Steven Caple Jr was set to direct the seventh Transformers movie after the studio decided to go for a soft revamp of the franchise, which has collectively made over 4 billion dollars at the box office.
