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.

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.

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

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.

This is not the script. For one thing the military is hardly in it. MB will never go for it. This would work as an animated film that you find for 2.99 in a petrol station. Far to many cliche's, the G1 references would be ridiculous in a live action film. Also, the large amount of spelling mistakes show that this is an unprofessional piece of work. No doubt some G1 entusiast wrote this over the weekend.

One last thing, this would be the most expensive movie ever. There are robot modes in almost every scene. Puting a Transformer on screen costs money and hours of work from the animators. I'm not sure that ILM have the computer power to generate this movie. The commentary on ROTF said that when rendering Devestator for the first time the computer blew up. How would they handle constant robots and two combiners.

No way this is for real. Waay too many fan nods to be the real deal. Good read, if it were fanfic. Too many chracters from TF2 absent, & there is no consistency to explain said absence. Ultra Magnus' speech at the end was basically the Battle of Autobot City from TF:TM in X amount of words. Good plot, but not the real thing says I.
Re: Rumor: Possible TF3 "Script Treatment" Leaked (1027135)
Posted by Primus C-00 on December 12th, 2009 @ 4:58am CST
That. Was. Amazing.

I hope to my self that was the real deal and something along those lines gets made.

The is brand integrity and then there is brand integration.

There are more than enough military vehicles involved for bay and his Army pals to get jazzed over.

Character absences from TF2? Ultimately a good thing, and as they travel back in time Skids and Mudflap get retconned out of existence.

Too much robot cgi? Pffrt, first we complain we don't get enough then we complain we get too much. With the gross from Shelfwarmers Revenge of The Fail-line the effects could feasibly be pulled off, even if they were slightly reduced.

:APPLAUSE:

The two leaked treatments for the prior films weren't that far off finished product, but even if this was total fan wank it was fun to read.

*sighs*

That...felt like a terrible waste of time to me.

There is no way possible that this is the real script idea. Why?

1.) The grammar is terrible. I have no room to talk, given that my grammar is terrible, however, it takes one to know one, and whoever wrote this is clearly not a professional. Too many errors.

2.) It's TOO Geewunified. Borrowing some elements would've been fine, but to this level of excess? No. Bay wouldn't go bassackwards at this point. Especially with the robot designs and Prime's vehicle mode. No.

3.) It jumped back and forth way too much. Way too much. The first movie suffered from horrific jump cuts. They handled this aspect of the film making process much better in ROTF, and I sincerely doubt Bay would fail to employ the same methods that gave him such a rousing success with the sequel. Bay's a creature of habit, if he sees that something's working, he sticks with it.

4.) It would alienate the audience far too much (which would hurt their bottom line), and it would be an absolute snorefest. If you, like me, thought the first was boring, this one would make the first Bayhemer look like a fast paced, super epic. (Yes, this was really that bad.)

5.) I see Devastator as being a one off. I mean, considering all of the clones in the Egypt battle, it would've been easy for them to form an army of Devastators, yet only one existed. Why? (I mean besides budget and time) Why now, all of a sudden, would combiners be a dime a dozen like this? It just doesn't sit right with me. It feels...fake. Terribly fake.

6.) Anyone....ANYone could buy a stamp and make their's look official.

I will say this, there were some great Sam moments, but without his parents in the mix, it just doesn't work as well. I mean, if you're going to have a human cast, have the whole cast. They work better as a unit, rather than split up and others not being used at all.

IF (and that's a tremendous if) this thing happens to be even 50% real, then I can finally say this would be one TF movie I could find myself skipping. Unless it was wow inducing and really made a dent in the box office and wowed audiences....I don't see myself giving in to watch a mess like what was seen in this joke of a story.

It screamed fanfiction. As fanfiction goes, it wasn't too bad. Not great, not even close, but not too bad. As for TF3? No. Doesn't even remotely feel like a Bay helmed "masterpiece".

Regardless if it's real, hoax, or somewhere in the middle it is a fun read. :APPLAUSE: I read all 126 pages in one sitting and throughly enjoyed it, granted I'm a sucker for anything Transformers, time travel, or paradoxes so all three together was a treat. Here's hoping that if this is nowhere near the movie it'll see some other media, maybe a year long comic series to encompass the obvious opening for the next movie or form the basis of another comic storyline/continuity.

i absolutely loved it and think this would make a far superior film to the 1st 2 (and i loved those as well). But that being said, it does sound way too good to be true. There wasn't a single thing i disliked and it retcons in such a way that fills in some of the plot holes in the previous movies...and it actually makes sense. So therefore no way it's real, but it would be awesome if it was.

How did that make sense? The allspark can be manipulated and used to create a time field. What? The way they back was just like in Beast Wars. Starscream takes a new F-15 form and changes his paint job. Why, the military jets are not coloured that way. What possible reason would he have for the colour change. Mirage as an F1 vehicle, come on. "Prime, lose the flames", did the fan who wrote this not like the flames? :crying:

Starscream would never destroy the Allspark. He needed it to take command of the Decepticons. So how were the Autobots fooled by a simple explosion. Wouldn't it still give of readings if it was on the other side of Mars. Also, Mars is converted into a new Cybertron and the Autobots set up shop. Why did they go there and how did they know it was there? The Decepticons push them off and onto earth. The humans just say "sure build a city here, even though your enemies are not far away and can destroy our cities at will". Please tell me which of these things make sense. Another thing, MB loves Sam's parent's and would insist they were in it.

I have read some of the first pages and I agree when some people say that it's fan-fiction. Not to boast, but I'm familiar with professionally written scripts; most of the writing seems like an emulation.

That said, if (very big if for a very small possibility) this was a real draft, then I do hope we get to see more of Ratchet than ROTF allowed (maybe a full transformation sequence for once). And, a note to the producers whatever the story; keep Jolt and Sideswipe! :PRAY:

Very well done fan fiction definetly!!! The little Energon & lot of luck line gave it away for me. it seems like they sat down and watched the G1 animated movie & tried to figure out how to blend it together with the movie verse. Again very well done & worth the read for S's & G's, but way too good to be true for Mr. Bay to use. ( although he could take some notes!!!)

Posted by Serpent O - R on December 12th, 2009 @ 4:21pm CST
Just finished it and I thought it was cute.

I'm gonna give it a shot... Okay this took me about 30 minutes.

Optimus agrees to reveal their existence to the world to prevent war between the US and Egypt for destroying the Pyramids. The population is split between acceptance and terror. Megatron is being repaired while Starscream harbors traitorous thoughts. Leo, Sam and Mikaela open a side business of selling Motorcycle and Car calendars attached to her fathers repair/custom shop. Simmons has officially joined up with NEST as their PR guy since the reveal.

A disturbance around Neptune has caught the attention of astronomers as its image disappear from view. It appears that a Primordial Black Hole has entered the system. When Neptune completely disappears, a pulse is emitted from the Black Hole. Every bot, Autobot on Earth or Decepticon on Saturn's Moon, takes notice.

Megatron laughs maniacally on the repair slab, Optimus tells the humans that it's not just a Black Hole and Starscream panics as he exclaims to Megatron, "That's Unicron! What are we going to do?" Megatron laughs as he answers, "We Die."

Unicron eats the Decepticon moon base and they flee to Mars. The NEST force improvises and sends a frontline to Mars. The final battle between the Bot's and Con's takes place on the barren surface of Mars until Unicron closes in.

Together the two rival forces team up to destroy this beast the only way they can: Infiltrate his chassis, locate his core and disable the EM fields that keep his Black Hole 'battery' from devouring him from the inside out.

Everyone dies and Sam is the only one left and alone in Unicron's Core. Thinking of his parents and everyone else on earth, he throws himself into the mechanics in a heroic sacrifice that results in Unicron's self destruction. Humanity is saved and forever after the new shadow in the sky is a reminder of Witwicky's mantra: No Sacrifice, No Victory!

The End.

[edit- I kinda like this idea, I'm gonna flesh it out some and put it up in the Transtopia forum.]

Posted by Novascream on December 13th, 2009 @ 12:05am CST
Yeah, I just finished reading it and it does seem a little too good to be true, with a lot of 80's generation one characters in the mix. There is even a Stunticon cameo in the beginning. But truthfully I doubt very much that this film will be made as it is written in the treatment. For one they want to have Chevy sponsor them again to cut production costs and that means they need to have/show certain car models and so on. For the Transformer films are essentially 2 plus hour long car commercials, which really needs to stop if you ask me. Also if they go back in time to the 80's they should go all out and have all the characters be what they were in the 80's, including VW bugs, tape recorders, Guns and all the size changing abilities they threw out the window. There is also no reason why Sam and Leo would be working at some scientific research facility, as there is nothing in Sam's character development thus far that says he is any sort of intellectual or even that smart. All he does is react to situations, but that could be his mediocre acting. Unless you want to say the Cube has permanently made him a genius or something, as that could explain his working in the scientific field(s)? But that still doesn't account for Leo who was annoying as hell in the first film and just a bit of racial pandering if you ask me ( Like Skids and Mudflap). I would rather they bring in Raul and team him up with Tracks, as that would be a much better fit if they are trying to gain a larger Hispanic audience. Either way Bay has also hinted that he was going to bring Unicron into the film, so who knows where that would lead. I also doubt the film will end as a cliffhanger, but then again you never know. Maybe they are trying to gage the communities reactions to this supposed script. I just know they need to actually have a real story this time, and more than just the fluff they have been delivering so far. They also need better toys and better designs for their toys. They are unnecessarily or overtly complicated, paneled, detailed, layer, and over thought for the most part. Sometimes less is more, anyone with a background in design could tell you that. Sideswipe was one of the only decent new figures, while the rest were slightly overkill if you ask me. But then again no everyone can be happy.

Didn't read it. Not going to read it. If this individual had actually just been straightforward and presented their work as fan-fiction, maybe then I would read it but I have no intention of indulging this lying piss-ant regardless of how much time was put into this supposed "script". Just the very fact that another member of the TF Fandom would pull such an infantile stunt is insulting to me and, I would hope, be insulting to all the rest of you. Only thing worse than this blatant hoax would be an actual "working" script with a Unicron plot. I'd buy off on the second coming of Primus before I'd pay to see that plot on the big screen...again.
Re: Rumor: Possible TF3 "Script Treatment" Leaked (1027413)
Posted by kviesgaard on December 13th, 2009 @ 5:09am CST
I read the "script" last night, and my first thougth was that is was great.

Then i started to reflect upon what i had just read, and some elements in the script started to become not so great. After a good nights sleep i have become more and more unsatisfied with the whole time travel aspect. I personally do not see any need for the Transformers to be reformattet into vehicles of the 80'ties. I am fine with Optimus Prime being a longnosed truck (though i would not mind losing the blue flames).

To me, the Transformers is more appealing, when their story takes place in the same present, that i myself is living in (and this comes from a guy, who is not really that satisfied with the two movies so far). Personally i would prefer them (Michael Bay & company) to improve on what they have already established (and by improve i mean get a descent story put together this time), instead of doing something totally different, as it is my feeling this leaked script is.

Finally i was also hoping for Unicron to be in the third movie. More or less for no other reason than i am curious for his moviedesign (because after the first two movies i have more or less given up upon the moviescripts).

So in essence i for my part hope this leaked script here is indeed a fans creation, and not the actual script.

Personally, I'd love this to be the actual script. Though I could happily live without seeing Leo ever again. Bring back Anthony Anderson!

I've never been a fan of Wheeljack or Perceptor but they are infinitely preferable to the awful twins. Havin actually enjoyed Defiance, I'd like to see Prowl in the next one. I loved the parents in the first one but they were terribly written in ROTF.

I also hope alien heads are kept to a minimum. Prime has a G1-esque head, why couldn't the others?

Anyway, I would be very happy to see this in the cinema. It's Shakespeare compared to ROTF, but then so is your average tech spec.

Thank you! I tried to read.... But time travel? Everyone taking alt modes of 80's vehiles?
To those that liked that...... "story", is this really what you want? Personaly, i felt that was an insult to anything TF related. This is not G1. We don't need these G1 refrances. Anyways, the story was so cheezy.... I mean seriously. I don't get it.

If this is what "The fans" want to see in a TF movie, then no wonder Bay & company have steered clear of fan made scripts and ideas. Unbelieveable.

That was a "fun" way to spend an hour. I just read it in one sitting and it was entertaining. NO WAY it's the treatment for TF 3 but not a terrible read by any means. The fact that the Ark is included is a dead give away cause Bay said the dosen't understand why robots that turn into vehicles would need any form of transportation to travel thru space, hence the proto forms and Starscream and Megatron flying in their alt modes thru space.

Also, I can't remember but does Paramount own Knight Rider? If not then the KITT references would never make it into the script as amusing as they were. Ever notice Bumblebee only quotes paramount owned properties like Star Trek and not Star Wars?

Bad, terrible, horrible, awful, heinous, horrendous, nausea inducing, take your pick. Even as fanfic, it sucks.

I see this in two ways.

1. In agreeance with others here that it has far too much fan wank to be real sence Bay seems to go out of his way to remove or alter anything fan related beyond fan recignition. Sam was given the nickname Spike and his Grandfather was called Sparkplug. Starscream had "Cobra" inprinted on his cocpit and was described to regain G1 coloring that I doubt he'll ever gain outside the toy line. The place where Sam grandfather lived was allso called "Powerglide".

Aside from the fan wank this allso seemed to be severly lacking in the human eliment that Bay seems to love. Namely if they did the whole engagement thing it would take the entire movie for either Sam to pop the question or for Mikala to answer it, it wouldn't happen as quickly as that script showed.

While the opening looked accurate with the first two movies they didn't have an accurate ending that fits meaning Optimus Prime's opening and closeing monologs.

2. Reasons it could be real. The amount of bad story telling and plot holes that fit the inconsistancys with the first two movies. Namely the return of Brawl, Ravage, and Frenzy who are all dead. Granted Ravage and Frenzy can be exsplained away as they show up in the past and therefore haven't died yet but Brawl was part of the Combaticons in the future after his death.

Basically threwout reading I felt that the characters seemed to all change between 2 or 3 different personalitys. That of their G1 counterparts, personalitys that are actully consistant with the movie and personalitys that just seemed to be pulled from the ass of whoever wrote the thing. Sam in the begining for example the words "wise beyond his years" caught me as the first clue this was fake because that doesn't sound like either Sam or Spike and non of his actions passed that point seemed to fit that description.

Now the main reason this has got to be fake is the main plot. Time travel. Non of the abouve really proves anything as it's all just opinion and speculation but the fact that the whole plot revolves around traveling to the past is a dead give away that this is fake. Why because of the contract with GMC. For all intents and purpuses the live action movies have changed Transformers from being a toy commercial to being a car commercial. GMC uses Transformers to advertise their new vehicles that haven't been relised yet and all the Transformers in this are takeing on the forms of old vehicles. There's nothing new for GMC to advertise in that script hence it can't be a real script.
