Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner said Monday during the 3rd quarter earning conference call that that Hasbro continues to develop entertainment projects based on its brands - despite some delays and challenges. "We continue to actively develop a number of additional Hasbro films with great partners and writers, including Micronauts, Ouija, Candyland, Risk, Stretch Armstrong, Clue and Monopoly," he said.
Hasbro is also in active discussions with studio partner Paramount, director Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg about a potential fourth Transformers movie, adding he hopes to have news to share in the next quarter. Current movies being developed within the company and partners are "Stretch Armstrong" and "Candyland." The "Ouija" project was held because of the budget for the film but the script is in good shape and is being polished now, meaning that the film could be back with a studio shortly. A "Micronauts" script is being written for this project with JJ Abrams at Paramount, and the "Monopoly," "Risk" and "Clue" scripts are also being worked on, according to the CEO. Plus, other projects are also in the works, even though they have not been announced yet, he added.
