Producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura Hints A Possible Transformers - G. I. Joe Crossover Movie
| || |
After nearly a year of delay, G. I. Joe: Retaliation is finally out. The box-office success of the 2nd G. I. Joe movie may decide whether weíll see a 3rd G. I. Joe movie or not. However already, Producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura is hinting another G. I. Joe movie but this isnít an ordinary G. I. Joe Movie as you think it is. |
Ever since the rebranding of G. I. Joe as "A Real American Hero", the mighty bond between the franchise and Hasbroís Transformers is a strong one. In fact, Transformers Franchise began because of G. I. Joe; it was an idea to make transforming vehicles for Joes and Cobra led to the birth of the Transformers Franchise.
There had been numerous crossovers between the two brands; from the Cartoon to Comic Books. However, certain recent laws prevented TV Crossovers in modern times. An idea of a proper Transformers-G.I.Joe Crossover never went away however. This was clearly seen in the brief project named "Unit-E".
With the success of Michael Bayís Transformers Live Action Movies and the recent G. I. Joe: Retaliation, the producer is hinting a Live Action Transformers-G. I. Joe Crossover. At a recent interview Mr. Lorenzo Di Bonaventura expressed his opinion.
"I guess itís possible. I donít know. I think I probably at this moment, I resist it. I donít know necessarily why, but I just think thereís so much thatís so rich in the mythologies that I donít think they need to draw from the other. I think, I didnít rule it out for me and I think those things have somehow for me, sort of in the past, they made me feel like a little bit cynical exercises in just drawing money out of something. Itís not to say you couldnít do it well, but both these properties have such rich mythologies with so many characters, that you could go a lot of movies before you start running out of ideas of what to do. But itís not to say, if we found the rightÖ Iíd hate to set out to do that, but if I heard a story where we went, ďOh my GodÖ,Ē I could see a story right now about machination, machination of war and that could lead you sort of intrinsically to a Transformer. I think in general, Marvel is doing it within their own universe, right? And so it doesnít feel gimmicky in that way. I think thatís what I would really try to resist."
