Hasbro will also deploy in the room an unprecedented team of its top artists and designers to assist Goldsman and the writers to visualize this all-new cinematic universe:

“Paramount and Hasbro have partnered on many successful films in the past, including the ‘Transformers’ and ‘G.I. Joe,’ franchises,” said Brad Grey, Chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures. “Bringing together a writers room of this caliber is a bold step for our partnership, and one that we believe is critical for building these brands into new, successful franchises for the future.”

“Together with Paramount, we have assembled a team of incredibly talented creative minds and storytellers to continue to help tell the rich history and narrative behind this interconnected cinematic universe, and we are thrilled to be working with Akiva Goldsman again to guide this process,” said Brian Goldner. “We are also excited to partner with Paramount to produce the films, as we’ve had a strong and collaborative partnership since our first Transformers movie in 2007.”

The franchises set to be the groundwork for the Hasbro Cinematic Universe are G.I. Joe, Micronauts, Visionaries, M.A.S.K. and ROM: SpaceKnight. Paramount and Allspark Pictures (Hasbro’s film label) will produce all of the films with the writer’s room set to convene for the first time on Monday.
