Los Angeles: Makers of 'Transformers' are looking to add spin-offs to the hit franchise.

They are bringing on Akiva Goldsman to help expand the 'Transformers' cinematic universe, reported Deadline.

 

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 spin-offs.

Goldsman would likely join director Michael Bay, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Steven Spielberg as a producer. It is 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", reportedly crossing the USD 1 billion worldwide box office mark last year, making it the third film in the franchise to pass that milestone.
