Hasbro Cinematic Universe continues to build!

Some exciting news to hit us is that development continues on the Hasbro Cinematic Universe at Paramount Pictures who have officially announced the franchise’s writers room has taken shape with a number of notable writers including:

  • Akiva Goldsman (Transformers)
  • Michael Chabon (Pulitzer Prize winner for The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay and screenwriter for Spider-Man 2 and John Carter)
  • Brian K. Vaughan (Eisner award winning writer of comics Y: The Last Man and Saga)
  • Nicole Perlman (co-writer of Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain Marvel)
  • Cheo Coker (showrunner of Marvel’s Luke Cage)
  • John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (directors of Vacation and writers of Spider-Man: Homecoming)
  • Joe Robert Cole (Black Panther and American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson writer)
  • Jeff Pinker (writer of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and The Dark Tower)
  • Lindsey Beer (Transformers, screenwriter of Kingkiller Chronicle)
  • Nicole Riegel (writer of Blacklist script Dogfight)
  • Geneva Robertson (currently writing the Tomb Raider reboot)

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.

Now go make us a M.A.S.K. movie!
