Deadline is reporting that The Walking Dead co-creator/writer Robert Kirkman has joined Paramount Pictures' 'writer's room' for the Transformers film franchise headed up by Akiva Goldsman. Goldsman was hand-picked earlier this year to lead the room with an intent to work up sequel and spin-off treatments for producer Steven Spielberg and director Michael Bay.

In addition to Kirkman and Goldsman, the Transformers writer's group includes Iron Man screenwriters Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, Amazing Spider-Man 2's Jeff Pickner and Pacific Rim's Zak Penn.

A sequel to 2014's Transformers: Age of Extinction was previously announced for 2017, with lead actor Mark Wahlberg reportedly reprising his role.
