HASBRO Inc. has just announced a new position in the company and the person who will be assuming it.

The new position created for the toy manufacturer is Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Motion Pictures. The person who now has the new role is Bennet Schneir.

Mr. Schneir served as Vice President of Creative Affairs for ImageMovers Digital prior to assuming the position. He will head up the creative team at HASBRO which has at least four upcoming feature films set to begin production based off of board games such as MONOPOLY, CANDY LAND, CLUE and MAGIC: THE GATHERING.

John Frascotti, Hasbro’s Global Chief Marketing Officer said this in the press release: “Leveraging what we believe to be the best portfolio of brands in the children’s and family entertainment business, our goal is to deliver more fantastic cinematic experiences, similar to what we did along with DreamWorks and Paramount Pictures with TRANSFORMERS. Mr. Schneir is an incredibly talented industry veteran who will collaborate directly with filmmakers and writers to create extraordinary motion pictures. Together Lisa and Bennett will help elevate Hasbro to a whole new level in the entertainment industry.”

As previously reported here, on Seibertron.com, Transformers the Movie star Shia Lebeouf was arrested on trespassing charges at a Chicago area Walgreens store late last year.

Shia Lebeouf was a guest on the David Letterman show last night and during the interview the arrest incident that took place at a Chicago area Walgreen's came up. Shia had this to say regarding the incident:

“I got pretty wasted in Chicago and wound up celebrating in Walgreens.”

He then told talk show host David Letterman that he was there looking for acne cream for his face. When he was in the cosmetics aisle getting the cream, he thought the security guard for the store was laughing at him in his drunken demeanor,

“Now I’m starting to feel like, “It’s really not that funny, guy. Men need that stuff, too.”

Shia said he then left the store, went back to his hotel room and realized he had forgotten to purchase cigarettes. He then changed his clothes and headed back to the store where he had a second confrontation with the security guard.

"My logic was off, to say the least."

The confrontation caused him to forget his cigarettes for the second time and he then donned a hoodie and went back to get them. When he entered the store he was taken by a second security guard and arrested.

"I went to the police station with the pimple cream on my head."

Subsequently, Shia was not charged for the incident.

As previously reported here on Seibertron.com, Australian actress Isabel Lucas(Home and Away) was casted for the sequel to the live action Transformers film by TFTM producer Steven Speilberg.

Explosive Director Michael Bay has posted about this information on his ShootForTheEdit.com forums. From Mr. Bay himself:


Isabel - no Steven did not pick her - it just makes a good sound bite for press. Yes, I did give her the part. - True story.

Michael


Unfortunately, Michael doesn't elaborate on the story so we don't exactly know what he's referring to by saying "true story". True that they did see Isabel while filming another movie, or true that Speilberg had nothing to do with it.

So yes, Isabel Lucas is in Transformers 2 but no, producer Steven Speilberg did not pick her for the role. To view the original thread on this subject at the Bay Boards, click here.

Michael Bay blames Actor's greed for impending SAG strike

Director Michael Bay has posted a comment on his Shoot for the Edit boards regarding the impending strike that will be set forth by the Screen Actors Guild.

Michael is famous for his rants on his board, especially those posted early in the morning hours as this one, but a lot of what he says regarding the strike rings true.


"Michael Bay"....the leaders of these guilds seem to like the limelight they get in the press, it becomes more about the ego in the room rather than something smart. Striking is not smart. Through the history in America, strikes in businesses have only gained the union worker 6% at the max - so take the emotion out of it and go for the 6%.

No word yet from Michael Bay, or any other person dealing with the production of Transformers 2, has been given regarding how or if this will affect the projected June 26th release date for the film.

As previously reported here, Isabel Lucas has been added to the cast of Transformers 2. But with all the misinformation going around, no one can be certain of anything regarding the movie. That is until now.

A report has just come in from The Cairns Post, an Australian news outlet, that Isabel Lucas was picked by Steven Spielberg (Producer of Transformers and Transformers 2) for the upcoming sequel to the blockbuster hit.

The report states that Spielberg initially saw the Australian actress working on the war epic "The Pacific" and was so impressed by her role that he pushed for her to get a role in Transformers 2.

A spokesperson for Lucas's agent Meissner Management stated that she will most likely be cast in a 'strong supporting role'.

Slice of Sci Fi has reported that with the contract for the Screen Actors Guild set to expire on June 30th of this year, production for multiple movies may come to a screeching halt if an agreement cannot be reached.

Despite these reports, some productions are pressing forward with its shooting schedule, like "Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins", directed by McG, which is looking for a May 22nd 2009 release, and, of course, Michael Bay, who is set to begin shooting the film in early June of this year and looking for a June 29th 2009 release date.

Other directors do not seem as hopeful of the situation as shown by Producer/Director Steven Spielberg who has completely stopped production of his newest film about a trial over war activists in the year 1968. He and other directors are putting their projects on hold until after the June 30th deadline.

We can only wait and see what events may come and whether or not the projected release date for Transformers 2 will hold true.
