Debunked

Michael Bay wrote:Leaked Script

Some Internet sites this morning reported that some document recovery guy has found a legitimate 120 page script of Transformers 4. I can absolutely 100 percent say this is completely false. The only two people in the world that have our unfinished script are Kruger and myself. Also we are only up to page 70 in our T4 script. Maybe this guy has a cartoon or something else – but definitely not our movie!

As many of you are probably aware a supposedly leaked Transformers 4 script has been making it's way around the internet. We were actually supplied with this script a couple of weeks ago through an anonymous news submission. The script was allegedly recovered by someone working at a document shredding facility. After reviewing the script we came to the conclusion that is was almost certainly a fake and chose not bother posting it as news. Since then several entertainment websites, such as Unleash The Fan Boy, have ran with the script and it's picked up enough traction to draw the attention of Paramount and director Michael Bay. Which brings us to the official statement we just received from our friends at Paramount officially debunking this rumor. See the Michael Bay's statement below:

Hi there,
Please find below a statement from director Michael Bay, refuting the earlier news about the "Transformers 4" script referenced by writer Steve Lemlek, being leaked online.

"Some Internet sites this morning reported that some document recovery guy has found a legitimate 120 page script of Transformers 4. I can absolutely 100 percent say this is completely false. The only two people in the world that have our unfinished script are Kruger and myself. Also we are only up to page 70 in our T4 script. Maybe this guy has a cartoon or something else – but definitely not our movie!"

Thank goodness! It was basically the 1986 movie plus Circuit Breaker, the Protectobots, uber fanwank, and time travel. No way would something like THAT be real.

Does Seibertron have a "No Movie News" option (similar to another TF site)? Just curious, I would really appreciate it, personally. As far as I'm concerned those lowest common denominator abominations directed by some pathological liar and egotist have NOTHING to do with the Transformers. But maybe that's just me…

Sorry, but there's no "no movie news" option available on Seibertron.com. Those of us not happy with them just have to pass over the news-bites.

I figured it was fake, but considering that it would be a better read than the real script, I read it.

Even before Bay gave this confirmation, the folks over at Allspark.com were already one step ahead of him and exposed the false nature of the script. ;)

We more or less had the same discussion internally when the script first turned up. It's pretty clear to seasoned TF fans that it's fake, though I can see why entertainment websites with less specific interests would be fooled.

It looks as though the next installment of the Transformers movie franchise will not receive a comic book adaptation. Director Michael Bay posted an update to his message yesterday that debunked the leaked movie script rumor indicating Transformers 4 will not receive the comic treatment to help keep the movie's plot under wraps. You'll remember prior to Transformers: Dark of the Moon's opening the comic adaption leaked and spoiled the film's major twist involving Sentinel Prime. See the statement from Bay's website below:

Michael Bay wrote:P.S. I bet it is something from Hasbro. This time they are not doing a comic book of the movie because we want to keep our story under wraps. It must be their version of a comic themed Transformers story they are creating.

Seeing as how stumbling across that spoiler really dulled DOTM's impact for me...good call Michael. Perhaps his most sound TF decision yet.

Of course, IDW might just do one the following year. They did "Wrath of Khan" 2 decades later, so why not?

Possibly. But I see no immediate release a little bit before or during the film's release.

How about they just spare us all the pain and skip making the whole film? I'd rather read a shitty story in comic book form then waste another 2 hours watching Bay's TF-garbage.
