    Another movie, completely separate from the other on-going Transformers movies. lazy talentless Hollyweird really has run out of ideas, so they
    just keep recycling the same old ones over and over, screwing up
    franchises all over the place. :-(

    'Transformers' Standalone Movie in Development
    with 'Charm City Kings' Director Angel Manuel Soto
    --------------------------------------------------
    Paramount is expanding its Transformers business.

    Marco Ramirez (showrunner for Netflix's Marvel series
    "The Defenders") has signed to write a script for a
    new, standalone "Transformers" movie based on the
    Hasbro toy brand, with "Charm City Kings" director
    Angel Manuel Soto attached to direct.

    The project is still in its earliest stages, with
    Ramirez taking a fresh approach that will not connect
    to the "Transformers" movies directed by Michael Bay
    or the "Bumblebee" spin-off directed by Travis Knight.
    That series remains alive and well, however, with
    Steven Caple Jr. ("Creed II") directing a movie set in
    the "Transformers" Bay-verse that is set for June 2022.

    Ramirez is familiar with genre fare, starting as a
    writer on FX's "Sons of Anarchy" and Netflix's
    "Daredevil" before co-creating and co-showrunning
    "The Defenders," which brought together the Netflix's
    four Marvel heroes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage,
    and Iron Fist. He also developed CBS All Access'
    "The Twilight Zone" reboot with Simon Kinberg and
    Jordan Peele.
