Yes, it could apparently still happen. Really early days, though.

Interestingly, one idea the potential director pitched was a Transformers crossover:

But the suits weren't down with that. Don't they know about cinematic universes?

G.I. Joe was supposed to be part of Hasbro's shared movie universe last I heard, along with M.A.S.K., Rom, and Micronauts (all the properties that are now part of the same universe with Transformers over at IDW).

I don't really get why Transformers isn't the core of their shared movie universe, since it's already successful, but, hey, whatever. I'm not a Hollywood guy, so I must not be as clever as them, right?

I would guess it's combination of the freedom Bay has over the films (which I don't think has really lessened since they added the TF writers' room; I'm pretty sure he still has final say--besides Hasbro, who has ultimate control, of course) and the fact that they don't want to tie their most successful franchise's fortunes tied to riskier endeavors. Plus, they're making TF into its own cinematic universe.

But yeah, I agree that, if they're going to tie the Hasbro action properties together like that, TF should be the centerpiece of it (kind of like, again, how they did it at IDW).
