They say death and taxes are the only two things are certain in life, but it seems you can toss "Transformers" movies into the mix. Quality of the movies aside, the series has been a financial juggernaut, bringing in over $2.6 billion worldwide at the box office and that's not even counting the various marketing tie-ins and god knows what else that have boosted the bottom line. And it's not a big shock that Paramount want to keep the good times rolling transforming. They already bagged Michael Bay to return -- again -- to make explosions and it seems they're already planning for a future beyond.

Roman Coppola and Wes Anderson are developing into quite the team. Coppola first served as a second unit director on Anderson’s 2004 film, “The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.” In Anderson’s next film, “The Darjeeling Limited,” Coppola produced, co-wrote and returned to second unit duties. Along the way, Anderson discussed the idea of a film about a boy on an island who gets in a canoe and runs away.

Now, cinematic cut scenes, epic storylines and celebrity casting is pretty much the norm for the industry, who throw blockbuster-sized bags of money at games, with franchises as important to the console world as they are to Hollywood.
