‘Transformers 5’ Lead Writer Akiva Goldsman Says Movie Would ‘Beg, Borrow And Steal’ From ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Monsters Room’ And Marvel!

The writers of “Transformers 5” are seeing all sides to be able to come up with that perfect story. They are leaving no stones unturned on how the journey of Optimus Prime and the Autobots towards protecting humans from Decepticons went on.

Paramount Pictures have assigned a team of writers for the job with Akiva Goldsman taking the lead role. A report from International Business Times said Goldsman and the team are trying to establish a “mythological timeline” for “Transformers 5.”


Meanwhile, Goldsman told Deadline that they have been looking at TV shows, toys and other merchandise created by Hasbro. From there, they would be able to establish a mythological timeline for the live action thriller. Goldsman also added that visual help from robots, toys, writers, sketches and artists would play an important role for the film’s design.

We think that the upcoming “Transformers 5” movie would take a lot of inspiration from visual works, robots and Transformers toy series released in the market.

The Academy Award winning writer also further added that the writers were inspired by other teams who wrote “Star Wars,” “Monsters Room” and Marvel adaptations.

He said that his team of expert writers is trying to “beg, borrow and steal from the best of them, and gathered a group of folks interested in developing and broadening this franchise.” The writer said he got the taste of his work from JJ Abrams when he wrote an episode for the “Fringe.”

“The whole process of the story room was really delightful, and we are seeing it more in movies as this moves toward serialized storytelling,” he shared.

Movie goers, fans and critics are to watch out for the outcome of Transformers 5 which will hit the big screens in 2017.
