The final moments of last year's live action movie Transformers: Rise of the Beasts set the stage for an interesting franchise crossover. The main character of the film, Noah (Anthony Ramos), is invited to join the top secret G.I. Joe team, suggesting that a future movie in the Transformers franchise will bring both iconic properties together for an epic mashup.

But how serious was Paramount about that tease? The studio revealed at CinemaCon this afternoon that they are definitely planning on making that Transformers x G.I. Joe movie!

Deadline reports out of CinemaCon, "Steven Spielberg is executive producing. No filmmaker attached, despite the idea being hatched by filmmaker Steven Caple. Jr. in Rise of the Beasts."

The site adds in today's report, "Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is returning along with Mark Vahradian, Michael Bay, Tom DeSanto & Don Murphy."

This won't be the first time the Transformers and G.I. Joe properties have collided. Like Aliens and Predator, they came together in the world of comic books before the movies.

Additionally, a new animated movie titled Transformers One is coming soon from Paramount. It hits theaters September 13, featuring Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson.
