Hasbro's Allspark, Paramount To Develop A Shared Cinematic Universe For TRANSFORMERS, G.I. Joe And Others
Leave it to Hasbro to pick back up on just how to bring your favorite toys to life on screen! Already in progress is a slate of at least four more Transformers movies, but now we can include further knowledge of an expanding movieverse that will cross Transformers' characters with that of other properties.
"Paramount and Hasbro have had a longstanding relationship and we're proud of the success we've enjoyed on the Transformers and G.I. Joe franchises,” Brad Grey, Paramount chairman and CEO, said in announcing the deal. "We're excited to grow our agreement and make even more movies based upon these popular and powerful Hasbro characters and their worlds."
“Hasbro and Allspark Pictures put storytelling at the center of everything that we do. These brands are filled with memorable stories and vivid characters, and this universe creates a framework for how they will become interconnected,” Goldner added. “Extending our partnership with Paramount allows us to continue our long-term strategy and overall vision to build dynamic worlds for all of our brands, and we are thrilled to collaborate with them as we develop these properties.”
