What else do we know about the Transformers and G.I. Joe crossover movie?

"The crossover feature will bring together two of Hasbro's biggest toy lines, Transformers and G.I. Joe. It will pit the good guys – the robots in disguise Autobots and heroic Joes – against their archenemies, the dastardly Decepticons and conniving terrorist organization Cobra," The Hollywood Reporter's article says of the movie's plot.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Mark Vahradian, Michael Bay, Tom DeSanto, and Don Murphy are producing the Transformers and G.I. Joe crossover movie, while Steven Spielberg and Hasbro Entertainment will be executive producers.

The crossover between the two Hasbro properties was hinted at in the final moments of 2023's Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, which was directed by Steven Caple Jr. and starred Anthony Ramos. It is not yet known if Ramos will reprise his role as Noah Diaz in the new movie.

Before the crossover movie, Paramount is releasing an animated Transformers movie, titled Transformers One, in United States theaters this September. Hemsworth is voicing Optimus Prime/Orion Pax in Transformers One, while the cast also includes Brian Tyree Henry as Megatron/D-16, Scarlett Johansson as Elita, Keegan-Michael Key as Bumblebee, Laurence Fishburne as Alpha Trion, Jon Hamm as Sentinel Prime, and Steve Buscemi.
