The much-discussed Transformers writers room at Paramount has done its work, and there’s now a plan to move forward. That plan may be just a bit more limited than some expected; there is no giant slate of Transformers movies coming down the line.

But there’s a chance that he might only produce the films, and not actually star alongside Martin Lawrence. However, he could just as easily end up doing both. It simply hasn’t been determined what the Suicide Squad star wants to do yet. Read More »
