But it sounds like the budget on another high-profile film is probably going to have to suffer because of it.
Because the gaming company has faired so well during this quarter, Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner has announced that they have started active discussions with studio partner Paramount, director Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg about putting a fourth Transformers film into the works.
Goldner said the company was in such good shape, that many other projects will be seeing the light of day as well, such as their Stretch Armstrong project, their Candyland flick and even he previously reported canned Ouija movie.
Of the latter, Goldner compared the project's standing to Disney's The Lone Ranger, in that it will be going some serious budget changes to get into production. He added that the script for the flick is looking pretty goo and that the film could be back with a studio shortly.
Sounds like a plan, but let's get back to this Transformers business. Does Shia know about this? Does he want to do this? Are you really going to try and attempt it without him? How come none of these questions were asked at this strictly business meeting???
