Orci and Kurtzman Talk Transformers

Transformers screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman talked to MTV about the anticipated film and also a bit about a possible sequel:

Kurtzman: As fans, we read that [first draft] and said, "This isn't the best use of Soundwave, so let's save him for when we can actually do Soundwave right."

MTV: It sounds like you're already thinking about a sequel.

Orci: We have ideas, but we're trying to be diligent about not thinking ahead. We have a few notions.

MTV: Would any of the later incarnations of Transformers from "Armada" or "Beast Wars" be involved in future stories?

Kurtzman: Sure. Everything is up for grabs. But you have to be careful to not mix too many of the iterations. We couldn't crossbreed too much.

They talk a lot more about Bumblebee and the film's big third act, all of which you can read here.

I like the idea that they haven't just stuck with G1 as their source, to be honest.

Reading the interview further, however, I become somewhat concerned. "They talk, so they become characters in their own right". Character isn't going to be defined by the fact they talk, it'll be about what they say, how they say it, as well as their mannerisms and reactions to others.

"It's three times bigger than King Kong". No elaboration? No elucidation? King Kong was not good. What are they saying here?

And that old nutshell, "a boy and his car". Splendid.
