Rise of the Beasts Sequel Eyes Steven Caple Jr. to Direct

A new Transformers: Rise of the Beasts sequel is being discussed at Paramount with Steven Caple Jr. in talks to direct.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts has been a critical and commercial success, and fans may be wondering if we’ll be getting a new installment in the series. Rise of the Beasts director Steven Caple Jr. recently spoke about the possibility of the franchise in the future.

Will there be a Transformers 8?

Caple Jr. is in talks to direct the next movie in the Transformers franchise. He detailed in an episode of Deadline’s Crew Call podcast that he is not officially signed on for the next movie, but the sequel is “in the works.”

He described that he would love to branch out the ending of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, which would create a crossover event between Transformers and another Hasbro IP. “I have some ideas on how to branch out that part of the franchise,” Caple says. “And if I could do this crossover that I plan on doing, I think there’s a way to still feed the fans what we want in Transformers films, and also do something cool with another legendary IP so to speak that I always fell in love with since [I was] a kid. And there’s parts of it and characters from that IP that we’ve never used before and I would be excited and thrilled to incorporate it and do something really cool and special.”

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is now playing in theaters.
