Akiva Goldsman Out as Transformers 5 As Takes Over Hasbro Writer's Room

It seems that Hasbro found the Transformers Writers Room concept so successful they decided to use it for their other properties that are in the pipeline including G.I. Joe and the Micronauts. They tapped the leader of the TW Room, Akiva Goldsman, to lead the Hasbro Writers Room. Due to his new responsibilities he will no longer write the script for Transformers 5 but instead supervise script writing for TF5 (whatever that means). Paramount is negotiating with Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man) and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down) to write the Transformers 5 script.

- Blog Note: Noticed that site was getting redirected to some ad thing. No idea what that was. Hope I have it fixed but the only ads that should occur are the banner ones you see on the page that are only from Google or Amazon and none should do some overlay or redirection. Basically if they impede you reading the site, I consider it a problem. If that occurs please let me know using the email icon in the top right.

  1. If you've been paying attention you know that it really doesn't matter who is credited as having scripted these movies...Bay does whatever he wants to do and the writer is just there to fill in the pages.

  2. ^ Dude, you couldn't have said it better. I've heard through several sources Bay is a control freak. So, even if you have a phenomenal writer, it doesn't matter cause Bay will do anything he wants to do cause that's just the way he is.

  4. While Bay certainly does have some control. He doesn't get to write the script. The studio is in control of all of it and final approval. The director just unfortunately shoulders all the blame. Even if all of what you Bay haters say was true it doesn't really matter because obviously they still make a lot of money. That is all that matters to the studio who's approving these movies and changes.

  5. Not sure why they bother having a writer if a 3 hour movie has 2 hours and 45 minutes of robots fighting and car ads
