2016 is going to be a big year for things we’ve seen before.
THR reporting from CineEurope that attendees saw some footage from Transformers: Age of Extinction but then also just casually drops that Transformers 5 is definitely happening along with Paranormal Activity 5, the Ben Hur directed by Timur Bekmambetov, Beverly Hills Cop 4, GI Joe 3, Hansel and Gretel 2, and Star Trek 3.
Most of this isn’t news, basically all of those are greenlit and have been for a while, but Transformers 4 isn’t even out yet and they’re announcing Transformers 5. I want to say that’s weird but then again the franchise is one of the highest grossing despite being one of the worst reviewed of all time so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by anything.
So there it is. 2016: The Summer of Sequels. More so that usual. If anything original comes up we’ll let you know.
