The LA Times have followed up their previous story on Michael Bay and ROTF with a second article.

This second article focuses more on Bay himself, his style of filming, and the processes he uses to get the most out of his cast and crew, while also providing tidbits of information regarding the Transformers sequel.

Just like the first film, it would seem that Bay will be making the final edits hours before the film debuts, with Bay stating "This one, is barely going to make it to theaters."

Bay also discusses his 12 hour days of filming, and being the first director to be given permission to film on the Giza pyramid in 30 years.

Lots of moving parts going on in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. HASBRO Inc. has just announced its Quarterly Cash Dividends to be paid to share holders this quarter. $0.20 USD for every share held by stock holders as of August 3rd, 2009. The dividends are scheduled for release on August, 17th 2009.

Also happening at the toy company, the joint venture with Discovery Communications has just been closed in which Hasbro purchased a 50 percent interest in a joint venture which holds the Discovery Kids Network in the United States. Hasbro and Discovery plan for the joint venture to create a rebranded television network dedicated to high-quality children’s and family entertainment.

The rebranded network is scheduled to premiere in late 2010. The network will feature content from Hasbro’s rich portfolio of entertainment and educational properties, and content from Discovery’s extensive library of award-winning children’s educational programming, as well as programming from third-party producers.

And finally, we at Seibertron.com would like to congratulate Deb Thomas for being named Chief Financial Officer. Ms. Thomas will report directly to David Hargreaves, the Company’s Chief Operating Officer, who had been serving as Hasbro’s COO and CFO prior to the appointment of Ms. Thomas.

“Deb is an outstanding and experienced professional who has been an important contributor on many levels throughout her career at Hasbro,” said Mr. Goldner, CEO of HASBRO Inc. “She has clearly and consistently demonstrated her financial acumen and industry expertise as head of Corporate Finance, and we are pleased that she will now be taking on added responsibilities as Hasbro’s CFO.”

The LA Times have posted an article about a recent visit to one of Michael bay's editing studios.

While doing a good job at only giving brief run-downs of the scenes previewed (many of which have been glimpsed in part in the various trailers), there are still spoilers a plenty regarding both characters and storyline, so be warned if you are trying to remain spoiler free.

Bay revealed to the Times two voice actors providing character voices for Revenge of the Fallen, while one: Frank Welker is already public knowledge, the other Tom Kenny (Transformers Animated Starscream) is a new name to be associated with the film. While not stating which character they will be playing, Welker has been more or less confirmed as playing Soundwave, there has been no comment on whose voice/voices Kenny will be providing.

Bay also talks about the casting of main characters Sam and Mikaela, and how the cast has grown closer as a result of the first film.

Voice actor Neil Kaplan, who may be best known as the voice of Optimus Prime in the Robots In Disguise Transformers cartoon, is set to return to the Transformers Universe.

The actor will make his voice be heard in the upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen video game, giving voice to the characters Long Haul and Protectobot. Kaplan made the following announcement on his facebook page.

"I am THRILLED to announce my return to the "Transformers Universe". This summer you can find my work on "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen". This brilliant video game is from the geniuses at Activision. I play both sides of the fence as Decepticon - Long Haul and Autobot - Protectobot. So... I can help you save or destroy the Earth. Just try to let me know ahead of time... nothing worse then tearing down what was meant to be saved.


Your Buddy,
Neil Kaplan
