The pool has further been expanded with the inclusion of Gabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer, who co-wrote “Ant-Man.” There were also two more additions after that and both are ladies including Christina Hodson and Lindsey Beer.
Hodson counts to her writing credits “The Eden Project” and “Shut In.” She was recently commissioned by Warner Bros to write the new version of “The Fugitive” that previously starred Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones.
Beer, on the other hand, wrote the Disney family adventure “Dig,” “Short Circuit,” “How to Nail an Alien” for The Weinstein Company, “Electric,” and the reimagined “The Wizard of Oz.”
With a talented pool of proven excellent writers, there is no way that “Transformers 5” could go wrong as far as storyline is concerned. The even better news for Paramount is that it does not have to worry about the storylines of the future sequels of the franchise including its expected spinoff movies.
