The project was recently announced to have signed Matt Shakman to direct, with said to be penning.
Today, THR’s Aaron Couch said James Cameron faves Josh Friedman and Cameron Squires have been assigned to write the latest draft.

Wells’ ”War of the Worlds” (2005), ”Terminator: Dark Fate” (2019), and ”Avatar 2”. Squires was a writer on Marvel’s “WandaVision.
The film’s released date has been adjusted; it’ll now released six months later than expected, arriving December 22nd 2023 instead of in the summer.
Meantime, ““Transformers: Rise of the Beasts,” will now open a year later than expected -in June of 2023. It was initially due to hit theaters next summer.
