If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Fear not lovers of giant transforming robots, it looks like another ‘Transformers’ movie is in the works. The CEO of Hasbro, Brian Goldner claims the company is in talks with both Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg about a potential fourth installment. As if that weren’t news enough, Goldner also revealed that the company is moving forward with developing projects based on their other properties (read: toys) Micronauts, Ouija, Candyland, Risk, Stretch Armstrong, Clue, and Monopoly. Despite recent news that Universal dropped the ‘Ouija’ film due to budgetary concerns, Goldner is still confident that it will happen. He cites the recent situation with Disney’s ‘The Lone Ranger’ as precedent and thinks they will similarly restructure their budget.
The first thing that jumps out immediately with this story is not so much that there will be another ‘Transformers’ film, with the money the last one raked in we really should have been expecting that, but rather that Clue was mentioned among Hasbro’s upcoming projects. Clue?! How on Earth do they possibly think they can improve upon the 1985 ‘Clue’ film starring Tim Curry, Christopher Lloyd, and Madeline Kahn? If they are serious about moving forward with this ludicrous idea to convert every toy and board game in the box to a major motion picture, can’t they at least recognize that ‘Clue’ is well spoken for? But yes, in what comes as a surprise to no one, there is another ‘Transformers’ movie in development.
Would you guys go see another 'Transformers' movie? Is anyone actually excited about any of these other ideas?
