On the heels of the earlier report, that Don Murphy stated that the people working so far on the movie have gotten together to give their approval for the first draft to the upcoming Transformers movie,... John Rogers, writer of the script, which is based on the proposal concept by the movie's second producer, Tom DeSanto, has now released his own comments about his work on his Blog

"Enough with the begging. Here's a spoiler-free update on where the movie is.

I've turned in a draft. We had a meeting yesterday (hence the light blogging) with all the producers. All are in a good mood over where the first draft landed. I was particularly pleased that Tom DeSanto, who has always been the guy riding the "Transformers are full characters" wagon, is happy with where we wound up in these early days.

All have questions which need answering, and will be answered in what is acceptably called a "producer's pass" which is really the "free-because-my-guild-has-no-stones-and-why-didn't-we strike" pass. Then, we'll continue to tweak as we meet with directors. OR, I'll be fired, and you'll have to hump over to Dean Georgaris or Ferris & Brancato's blog. Then I can finally get rip-roaring drunk over Global Frequency not being picked up.

Security is brutally tight on this flick, and there's no way I'm violating my friendly relationship with the fine Dreamworks folks, who are actually my favorite execs in the industry. I think it does no harm to say:

-- Name your favorites. They're in there.
-- Big. Robot. Fights. Robot vs. Robot (mano a mano). Robots vs. Robots (plural, havoc) Humans vs. Robots. Robots vs. cybernetically enhanced rabbits. Cybernetically enhanced rabbits vs. butler ninjas. Butler ... oh, wait, sorry, different project. But most of that's true.
-- No cute kid sidekicks.

Now go away again.

P.S. -- Oh, and Don was yanking your chain about the Soundwave/Blender thing. He's a vaccuum cleaner. A sexy, sexy vaccuum cleaner".
