Get ready for more Transformers movies. A lot more.

Four more films based on the Hasbro toys are in the works for the next decade, bringing the total number of Transformers movies to eight.

Hasbro chief content officer and executive vice president Stephen Davis confirmed “Transformers” 5, 6, 7, and 8 during a keynote at MIPJunior, the annual showcase for kids programming.

“Well, you’re going to see a new ‘Transformers’ movie coming from Hasbro and Paramount and Michael Bay, and our other partners,” said Davis. “In fact, we just finished, which some of you may have read, just an incredible experience. We decided we wanted to plot out the next 10 years of the Transformers franchise, and so we got together in a room over a three-month period of time.”

Davis said they worked with nine writers who were led by Akiva Goldsman (“A Beautiful Mind”).

“They plotted out the next ten years of ‘Transformers,'” continued Davis. “Similarly, we’re doing the same in television and in digital. So stay tuned, ‘Transformers 5’ is on it’s way,” Davis paused before adding, “… and six and seven, and eight.”

This is a no brainer for Hasbro and Paramount.

Despite poor critical reviews — 2014’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction” sits at 18% on Rotten Tomatoes  — the movies are big money earners at the box office, especially internationally.
