This thursday, HASBRO will have it's first out of state Chief Executive Officer take over the company reigns in its 85 year existance. Brian Goldner will be set to lead the nation's second largest toy company and creators of the TRANSFORMERS.



Mr. Goldner will be succeeding Al Verrecchia, who has served at the position since 2000. Mr. Verrecchia had this to say about Mr. Goldner:

"[Goldner] has been at the forefront of Hasbro’s drive to bring innovation and growth to the toy industry and his tremendous experience and entrepreneurial spirit will serve him well in his new role.”

Mr. Goldner is definately not a stranger to the Transformers franchise either, as he served as Co-Producer opposite Steven Speilberg in the production of the 2007 live action movie.

Seibertron.com would like to congratulate Mr. Goldner on his new promotion at HASBRO, and offer our well wishes to you and HASBRO for the coming years.

In an interview with IGN Movies, Screenwriter Roberto Orci revealed some pretty exciting news about the upcoming Transformers 2 Live action movie.

Taken from the interview:

ORCI: We want to follow some of our lead characters which we thought were so successful. Shia's character; where is he two years later? His girlfriend, where is she two years later? But for fans, I guess I'll address this more for the fans, because I think if you didn't know Transformers at all and you came in and you liked the first movie, you'll like the second one. However, some of the die hard fans, which we were a member of that group, felt, well, maybe it's a little light. Maybe it wasn't science fictiony enough. And I think the second one will deliver on a true Transformers story. You know, the first one, we had a limited budget for what it was. Every second of Transformer time is a million dollars or whatever the heck it is, so this time, because we were able to prove through the whole thing that it's a viable live-action movie, we have a little more freedom this time to actually learn about the Transformers, see them, hear them. It's a better balance between the humans and the Transformers.

Q: Is there one particular Transformer, good or bad, that you absolutely had to get into the sequel?

ORCI: Yes.

Q: You're not gonna tell us.

ORCI: I'll tell you. We had to get Soundwave in there.


Mr. Orci gives more information out in the complete interview that can be viewed by clicking here.

'Michael Bay is going to up the ante on round two and raise the level. I can't go into any details , but it's going to be some real one of a kind things in this movie that no one has seen visually in their life. Michael Bay is really fired up to try and outdo what he did on the first round.'

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.

Shia Lebeouf: Arrest was over acne cream

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.
