Hasbro Cinematic Universe Assembles Writers Room

Paramount Pictures and Hasbro Inc. have set up a writers room for developing its cinematic universe for Hasbro properties, with Akiva Goldsman overseeing the scribes.

Those featured brands include “G.I. Joe,” “Micronauts,” “Visionaries,” “M.A.S.K.” (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) and “ROM.”

The writers assigned to the room are Lindsey Beer (“Wizard of Oz”), Michael Chabon (“The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay”), Cheo Coker (“Ray Donovan”), Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley (“Spider-Man: Homecoming”), Joe Robert Cole (“Black Panther”), Nicole Perlman (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), Jeff Pinkner (“The Dark Tower”), Nicole Riegel (“Soldier Girls”), Geneva Robertson (“Tomb Raider”) and Brian K Vaughan (“Lost”).

“Paramount and Hasbro have partnered on many successful films in the past, including the ‘Transformers’ and ‘G.I. Joe,’ franchises,” said Brad Grey, chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures. “Bringing together a writers room of this caliber is a bold step for our partnership, and one that we believe is critical for building these brands into new, successful franchises for the future.”

Allspark Pictures, Hasbro’s film label, plans to produce films based on this cross-property universe, with chairman, president and CEO Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis serving as producers, and Josh Feldman as co-executive producer. Hasbro will also deploy an unprecedented team of its top artists and designers to assist Goldsman and the writers to visualize this all-new cinematic universe.
