Bob Strauss has written a article for <a href="dailybulletin.com">Daily Bulletin</a> about the making of the <a href="http://webmaster.transformersmovie.com/click.html?c=FLINCG" target="_blank">Transformers Movie</a>. He has some pretty cool information on what went on in the very early stages.

<i>The "Transformers" movie was actually Spielberg's idea, not Bay's.</I>

duh. Bay didn't want to do "a stupid robot cartoon" movie, till spielberg convinced him to. Spielberg has wanted to do this movie for a long time. he had an interview back in 03 where he hinted at a TF movie. he wanted to release it in 05 so it would be like an anniversary movie seeing as how the origional took place in 2005, sadly we pitiful humans lacked the sufficient technology to do such a movie.

Agreed, it's no secret that Spielberg is who had to convince Bay to do it since both of them have stated it publicly several times now. That, and I'm sure, the guarantee of complete creative control from Hasbro... which he obviously got.

Spielberg's original synopsis was "a boy and his car", if I recall correctly.

Wow, the entire article is just the director/producer/design team licking each other's balls to make them all look good.

This movie actually reminds me of the first Poltergeist movie, as in the first Poltergeist was directed by Tobe Hooper but heavily influenced by Spielberg.

Motto: "Who ate all the pies?"
Weapon: Laser Scalpel
Saw an interview where Bay said he wasn't thrilled abotu the concept and had to go to "Transformers School" run by Hasbro before he felt comfortable.

Whatever the hell TFS is, I wanna go.
Something memorable here.
