With all the amazing news that has hit the Transformers Universe today, why not add in something about the next installment to the live action movie franchise.

According to Allspark.com, a leaked PDF Script Treatment for Transformers the Movie Part 3 has been made available by a person who chooses to go by the handle "Beachcomber".

Seibertron.com has noticed some inconsistancies with this "treatment" from the original 2007 film's leaked script, dubbed Prime Directive, that was made available for a very short time way back when. As always, and as is stated by the Allsparkians, take this with a cup of salt and enjoy it for what it is.

Check out the email from "Beachcomber" and the treatment by clicking here.

WAY too much fanservice in this one for it to be anything close to a real movie... though in Bay's (chuckle) capable hands, I'm sure it would be filled with meaningless explosions and violence, lacking all memorable character moments, and containing approximately 13 more flagrant and unnecessary sexual references.

What doesn't sell it to me, though, is the obvious lack of carryover from ROTF: Jolt, Sideswipe, and Wheelie are all notable in their absences.

I agree with Emeraldbeacon. This seems just to be a G1 fan dream. While a part of me wishes this was something more, I really don't feel that it is. Michael Bay would never eat the amount of crow he would have to eat to bring this to the big screen. He is far too big headed in the belief that his creations are superior to any "cartoon robots that turn into 80's vehicles". Simply put, he would never allow it.

To be honest, after reading the first 15 pages I don't want to continue, because I know for a fact this is too good to be true...

after reading first pages of the script, all i could think of is that the movie is live but in 2d animation. love the g1 references though.

yeah this would make a great movie but uses too much transformer interaction for it to be real :( But we can hope i suppose

Too much fan wank in it for me to think it's legit. Also, take notice that the scans of each page are perfectly lined up, whereas in the TF1 "leaked" script (I still think it was intentionally leaked), the scanned pages weren't lined up perfectly.

Anyone take the time to notice if the image for the word "draft" is repeated? Seems like that'd be an easy way to debug this. If a duplicate of the word "draft" shows up more than once (not the word, but one of the images used for the word "draft"), then I'd call it an early april fool's day joke.

I don't find that surprising at all. Why rehash established characters when you can throw new ones out there to get collectors back in stores to buy them? Honestly, of those 3, Sideswipe is really the only heavyweight, and what more can you do except repaint and/or remold him. This is especially true if the Hasbro "suits" actually do want to distance themselves from ROTF.


Anyhow, love the twist at the end, but I agree that the validity of this "leaked script" should most definitly be taken with a mountain of salt.


:-?

Like others have said, I wish this were true, but it's probably not. You don't even have to read the "script". The tip-off is in the letter. Acquired "through a chain of acquaintances"? That's the same as saying "I got it from a friend of a friend of mine". "Our mission was to rain on Bay's parade"? That just sounds so infantile. "Waaa...we don't like you, Michael Boob, so we're going to steal your script and put on the internet. OMG, we R so 1337 haxxorz!" Please. :roll:

Though I would like to think Hasbro doesn't want their flagship brand's image to be sullied further with more crude humor and mediocre stories and characters, I don't think they really care as long as they make more money.

And while I do like what little I've read of the "script", I'll believe it when I see it...on the big screen.

I love this. I wish the movies were like this. I personally like the new movies, but this would blow them away!

It can't be real though, sadly. After Ravage appears on page 94, it's pretty much guaranteed this is faked. Ugh...

Read the entire thing. While it's somewhat interesting, I'd definitely call this a fake. Like you guys have said, way too much fanservice and robot dialogue.

Well for a fan wank it was done expertly.

They travel back in time (UGH!), try to become G1 (UGH!!), something about Area 51 (UGH!!!), a bunch of dead Decepticons inexplicably return (UGH!!!!), Decepticons suffer key losses while Autobots suffer none (UGH!!!!!), a whole lot of scrolling through Sam "Spike" (UGH)/Mikayla/Leo dialogue (UGH!!!!!!), cliffhanger ending (UGH!!!!!!!).

ugh

Im at page 12 and I am liking it. The Lazerbeak spying and reporting to Soundwave along with Wheeljack and Perceptor plus The Ark? Nice.

**Edit**

At page 41 now...Man, this is beyond fake but, an enjoyable read.

If...

then some things will need to be tweaked a little, spelling inconsistencies (site instead of sight 4 times!!!) will need to be removed, Bay will need to amp the explosions a little, some of the dialogue will need to be readjusted, and some of the weaponry will need to be tweaked (like Bay does, with a buzzsaw).

But omg, this is great! I mean, it has a fun factor of 10! No annoying little dogs and stupid things like that. Sure, Ravage is back, but he could easily be edited out. The abundant use of CG scenes might make Bay tremble in his ball-cap, but overall, this is what it should be. Time travel and overdose of past lines aside, this really does read well. Best of all, it cleans up a whole lot of problems and plot holes, while still conveying the Story of Spik... I mean Sam.

I can't believe it prompted me to actually write OMG. My fingers are officially crossed.

Two typos on the first page ("reek havoc" and "hide in plain site")? How stupid do they think we are? An over-imaginative fan with too much time on his hands spunks his wet dream all over the internet and passes it off as a leaked script.

If any of you fall for this (or even worse, want this to be the actual film), then I don't know who is sadder - the hoaxer or the hoaxee.
