    Chris Hemsworth will be taking on his second role in the Transformers universe with this gig. He is also the voice star of the animated movie ‘Transformers One‘, which is scheduled for a September 20 release.

    The proposed crossover film will pick up where last year’s ‘Transformers: Rise of the Beasts‘ left off. As per the film’s narrative, Anthony Ramos’ character, Noah Diaz, receives a job offer from the G.I. Joes. This sets the stage for this highly anticipated crossover.

    Director Steven Caple Jr., who has also worked on projects like ‘Rise of the Beasts‘, had designed this ending to the first part with encouragement from producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. The decision was made with careful consideration of the effort it would require to bring the crossover to fruition.

    However, he will not be continuing his role as the director for the upcoming part.

    Speaking about the rather ambitious project, Steven Caple Jr. was skeptical about it when the project was first approved. “The studio reacted positively, and they were just like, ‘Well, how do we do this? How do we make this happen?’” Caple told THR last year.

    He also revealed that a crossover graphic novel was a potential inspiration behind the film. “It took almost two years to go through the whole system and talk to everybody and get a feel,” he said.

    While Caple was initially interested in directing the crossover feature, he is not currently attached to the project. The writer or director of the film is therefore not confirmed as of now. The film will be produced by di Bonaventura, Mark Vahradian, Michael Bay, Tom DeSanto, and Don Murphy, with Steven Spielberg and Hasbro Entertainment serving as executive producers.
