Rumours have emerged that director of HBO Max’s ‘Charm City Kings’, Angel Manuel Soto will direct a new Transformers movie for Paramount according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Currently there are no story details on the new film, but according to the report, Soto’s film will be separate from Paramount’s primary Transformers franchise, including Michael Bays films and Travis Knight’s Bumblebee spinoff.
The script is set to be written by Marco Ramirez, who previously served as co-showrunner of both Daredevil season 2 and The Defenders. Most recently, he was a writer and executive producer on CBS All Access’ reboot of The Twilight Zone. Ramirez has also written for Sons of Anarchy and Fear the Walking Dead.
Soto’s Transformers film is just the latest attempt from Paramount to breath life into the series. The studio has been plotting even more big-screen adventures with the robots in disguise. Stephen Caple Jr. (Creed II) is currently working on another Transformers film from a script by Joby Harold. Additionally, Toy Story 4 director Josh Cooley is developing his own animated prequel.
Most of Soto’s past work consisted of short films, However, Last month, he was also chosen to helm DC’s long-gestating Blue Beetle standalone film. Meaning that Transformers is not the only cinematic Universe Soto will be apart of in the future.
