Deadline reports Goldsman would not be writing but instead assembling and overseeing a “writers room” to hatch an idea for how to tackle a two-part sequel in the film’s franchise in addition to potential spinoffs. Goldsman would likely join Bay, di Bonaventura and Steven Spielberg as a producer.
It’s unknown whether Bay will return to directing duties for any new installments. He is currently in pre-production on his Benghazi thriller “13 Hours.”
The franchise is a huge priority for the studio, with the most recent film, “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” crossing the $1 billion worldwide box officer marker last year, making it the third film in the franchise to pass that milestone.
Goldsman is no stranger to shaping box office juggernauts, having helped with tentpoles such as “I Am Legend,” “The Da Vinci Code” and, most recently, “Insurgent.”
He is repped by WME.
