'Transformers: The Last Knight' To Softly Set Up Spin-Offs; A R-Rated Bumblebee Not One Of Them

One of the things to come out from the financial success of Transformers: Age of Extinction is Paramount Pictures' thirst for a cinematic universe for the franchise. With establishing a writers' room for spin-offs, Paramount are setting their eyes on making something similar to Marvel Cinematic Universe. The spin-offs seem to be originating from ideas planted in the upcoming instalment of the franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, producer of the film talked to some journalist, while they were on set, about the spin-offs being teased in The Last Knight:
"Some of the things will have a very direct relationship. You’ll see some things in here that are laying a pipe. You won’t necessarily know that it’s laying a pipe for another movie, but it’s there.

So there’s probably, in a really meaningful way, two or three things in this movie that really have a meaningful aspect in terms of it, and then there’s a bunch of little things. But we’re not making this movie to set up the other movies. That’s what I’m trying to say. If you get too carried away with that, you stop thinking about this movie.

And this movie, the two lines of mythology in a sense give you freedom to go a lot of different places later on that may or may not directly relate to another movie, but it’s opening up the universe in a way that, I think, it’s probably the most provocative, in terms of the movie. It’s opening a really large universe of what Transformers is, and where they’ve come from, and how we relate to them, and how they relate to themselves."

di Bonaventura went on to confirm that Christina Hodson is currently writing the Bumblebee spin-off and may or may not feature other transformers in it:

"It’s being written; Christina Hodson is the writer. It’s bumblebee’s story. I don’t think you’ll see a lot more in it. We’ll see as it evolves. In the treatment form? No."

Michael Bay then talked about the fact that he would love and be involved in a R-rated Transformers spin-off - that would've been Bumblebee's one but probably won't happen:

"You know, yeah, that would be fun. There’s actually one idea that would be really fun R rated, with Bumblebee. I don’t wanna say, but it would be really fun. Very Quentin [Tarantino], you know. I would be very involved but we’ve got someone just starting work on the script right now. Steven [S. DeKnight] is involved too but he’s shooting too."
