Update: Aronofsky clarified today that he hasn’t officially signed on to a new directorial project yet. Our original story follows.

Three years will have elapsed between the release of Requiem for a Dream director Darren Aronofsky‘s 2014 movie Noah and his upcoming horror thriller mother!, but it seems like fans of the director’s work won’t have to wait another three years to see his next movie.

Paramount’s Transformers spin-off Bumblebee movie is gearing up to put the pedal to the metal/burn some rubber/leave its competition in the dust…okay, okay, I’ll stop.

Transformers box office

Full disclosure: I have not seen Transformers: The Last Knight. (I’m currently listening to the /Filmcast’s highly entertaining review of it.) But just because I haven’t seen the movie yet, that doesn’t preclude me from exploring its box office performance and attempting to draw some conclusions about where the Transformers franchise might go from here.

Transformers 6 Cybertron

Cybertron, the alien home world of the Transformers in Michael Bay’s live-action film series, has, to put it mildly, been through some shit. The original stomping grounds of Optimus Prime, Megatron, and the rest of the gang became a war-torn wasteland during a civil war when Megatron attempted to steal the all-powerful All Spark and rule the universe. And in the third film, 2011’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Sentinel Prime and Megatron attempted to use a space bridge to transport the wreckage of Cybertron to Earth’s solar system, but when their plan was foiled, the entire planet imploded on itself and the Autobots made Earth their home.

But it looks like the Transformers films may not be finished with Cybertron just yet: the CEO of Hasbro says that Transformers 6 might feature the home world once more.

Top Gun - Movies Leaving Netflix

The idea of a Top Gun 2 has been floating around Hollywood for nearly a decade. It flew through a rough patch of air following the 2012 suicide of original Top Gun director Tony Scott, but a couple of years later, Paramount and producer Jerry Bruckheimer hired The Jungle Book writer Justin Marks to rewrite the script. Star Tom Cruise is still very much involved, and now a new report indicates that the project may have finally found someone to lead this sequel back to the Danger Zone: Tron: Legacy and Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski.

Ben and Casey Affleck

Director J.C. Chandor’s drug thriller Triple Frontier just won’t stay down. The movie has been in the works since 2009, and was originally envisioned as Kathryn Bigelow’s follow-up to her Oscar-winning film The Hurt Locker. The promising project has suffered a string of bad luck in the years since, culminating with Paramount and stars Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy dropping out last month, just weeks away from the planned start of production.

But now it looks like Netflix might swoop in to keep this movie alive, and they could be bringing Ben and Casey Affleck along for the ride.

Michael Bay transformers spinoff

The first Transformers film came out ten years ago, and ever since, director Michael Bay has been threatening to walk away from the franchise. It’s a tale as old as time: boy meets intellectual property, a boy blows stuff up in a movie based on said intellectual property, boy gets huffy about returning for the sequel, the studio offers boy money, boy caves and directs sequel. Rinse, wash, repeat.

Now he’s at it again. After hinting that the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight would be his final time behind the camera in this series, Bay says he wants to direct one of the 14 Transformers spin-offs that are currently in development. So let’s run through the greatest hits of Bay’s love/hate relationship with these movies, and then speculate about what a Michael Bay Transformers spinoff could be.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Seeing as this comes not directly from Darren Aronofsky, but from Hollywood Elsewhere‘s Jeffrey Wells, who in turn heard it from Aronofsky’s frequent cinematographer Matthew Libatique, it’s probably safest to take the following news with a grain of salt. If true, though, it could mean we’re one step closer to finally seeing a project that’s been a very long time coming.

According to Wells, Libatique says that Aronofsky’s Noah is slated to begin shooting in July for a fall 2013 release, and that the production is still seeking its Noah and its villain. And by “villain,” no, I don’t mean the flood. More details after the jump.
