Robert Kirkman Working on ‘Transformers’ Spinoff Films and Sequels

“The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman has a new gig: Deadline reports that Kirkman is part of a four-team “writers’ room” headed up by writer and producer Akiva Goldsman, developing its planned “Transformers” spinoff films and sequels, along with genre film veteran Zak Penn (“X-Men: The Last Stand,” the “Pacific Rim” sequel), original “Iron Man” writers Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” and “Lost” alum Jeff Pinkner. More writers will reportedly be added to the team.

In late March, it was announced that Goldsman was tasked with forming a “Transformers” writers’ room, in an effort to build a cohesive “Transformers” film universe, beyond Paramount’s first four hit movies. Based on the enduring toys and multiple animated series, the “Transformers” franchise has proved a major success since the first 2007 entry to last year’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” which grossed $1.1 billion worldwide.

Kirkman’s first entry into film — “AIR,” which he executive produced and co-stars Norman Reedus of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” — is scheduled for release on Aug. 14.
