Paramount's Adam Goodman Opens Up About 'Top Gun 2,' 'Transformers 4'

After years of trailing its studio rivals in market share, Paramount zoomed to No. 1 in 2007 due in large part to Transformers and a handful of other titles overseen by DreamWorks president of production Adam Goodman. A year later -- amid its otherwise acrimonious split with DreamWorks -- Paramount persuaded Goodman to join the studio, promoting him to Paramount Film Group president a year after that. The Chicago native, good-natured but a tough-as-nails negotiator, hasn't disappointed, and the studio has stayed at the top of the industry in worldwide box-office grosses -- in a close rivalry with Warner Bros. -- and placed No. 1 in 2011 with $5.2 billion. Goodman, 39, hasn't been afraid to upend longtime Hollywood practices by eliminating perks like office fridges stuffed with groceries for favored producers, consolidating studio ranks and completely reshaping the low-budget space with Paranormal Activity.

Its either make up something new or make a sequel to something. I guess we know their answer. :P

I am wondering if Megatron lives in Transformers 4. Machines can always be repaired you know.
