Although not directly related to Transformers or the Transformers movie currently being produced, an interview with world famous movie director/producer Steven Spielberg has popped up on the site of BusinessWeek Online.

The article addresses the recent purchase of Dreamworks SKG to Paramount, and not to Universal who many thought were the odds on favorites to buy the Spielberg/Katzenberg/Geffen company. A business deal that has inadvertedly effected the Transformers movie, making it now a Paramount production.

"I really don't know what happened. They were talking with David Geffen. But then GE decided they wouldn't bid. And Paramount just came in and swept us up and made us feel as if we were worth something. GE wasn't willing to match it".

"I may take some time off from directing because there is nothing ready for me to direct, no script that is where I want it. But I'm definitely going to be working for Paramount. I'm very interested in Transformers, a film, which we're going to release next year. I think that will be a great, great film".

Jon Askins has informed us that the German Strar Trek website, TrekZone, is reporting that Ethan Phillips will play a role in the upcoming Transformers movie. Could he be a military General? Spike's father Sparkplug? Or maybe he'll be the voice of one of our beloved Transformers? He does have voice-over experience.

Phillips has been on several popular TV shows and movies, including five seasons on "Benson" (1979), and seven seasons on "Star Trek: Voyager" (1995). He has been a guest star on scores of other television shows. Ethan has appeared in many feature films and award winning shorts and has an active voice-over career. Phillips is also a playwright and an author. His original play, "Penguin Blues" has been produced more than 150 times throughout USA and Canada.

Don Murphy has confirmed on his message board that Shia LaBeouf will be in the upcoming live action Transformers movie. Murphy also revealed that LaBeouf will be playing Spike Witwicky! All previous reports said LaBeouf would be playing a character named Sam. Here is what Murphy originally posted:

"By Borys Kit and Tatiana Siegel

Shia LaBeouf is in final negotiations to star in "Transformers," the DreamWorks/Paramount Pictures live-action adaptation of the 1980s Hasbro toy line of giant robots that morph into cars, trucks, planes, ships and other technological creations.

Michael Bay is directing the movie, which is being produced by Angry Films' Don Murphy, Tom DeSanto and Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Steven Spielberg is executive producing.

In Transformers lore, the robots are divided into two groups: the Autobots, led by Optimus Prime, who believe in tolerance and the sanctity of life; and the Decepticons, led by Megatron, who espouse survival of the fittest and the extermination of biological life.

LaBeouf will play Spike Witwicky, an 18-year-old on the lookout for his first car. When he buys one, he discovers it is actually an elite sentinel for the Autobots.

The original script is by John Rogers, while Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci penned the most recent draft.

Hasbro's Brian Goldner also is exec producing.

The movie, which has a July 4, 2007, release date, is set to start shooting in Los Angeles in May.

Adam Goodman is overseeing for DreamWorks.

LaBeouf will now have the distinction of starring in the first two DreamWorks movies to go before cameras since Paramount acquired the studio -- he also is starring in DreamWorks' "Disturbia," which starts shooting Friday. He most recently starred in "The Greatest Game Ever Played" and will next appear in "A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints," followed by Emilio Estevez's "Bobby.""


Go to Don Murphy's message board to see the original post.

Shia Spike ... attack!!!

EDIT FROM SEIBERTRON: Now if they'd only get Bruce Willis to play Sparkplug ... :)

Several Transformers sites have reported that character names for a casting project called "Prime Directive" has lead them to believe that this was actually the casting for the upcoming Transformers movie.

Names dropped were Sam, Miguela Barns, Capt. William Lennicks, Maggie, John Kellar and Glen Whitman. Whether these names exist for the "Prime Directive" is not clear. However Don Murphy has dispelled or at the very least pointed out the mispelling of two of these names. He did so on his board and posted the following.

"Miguela is not a name in the script nor is Lennicks"

Last week the name of Sam was confirmed. At the moment there is still also no evidence to support that the similar rumor of Shia LaBeouf being cast in the part of Sam, holds any truth.

Don Murphy has made another one of his updates on his board. Murphy has made a comment about the part for Sam/Spike being almost a done deal. The following has been taken from his post on his site.

"On Transformers it seems the amazing Mr. Bryce has been keeping you all caught up on our progress, so much so that I have little to actually report. I filed my notes with the writers- the structure and characters are great, the notes were just to help make things more "Transformery". Casting is going great and there seems to be almost a consensus for young SAM/SPIKE. Yes you've seen him before and yes you'll groove on him- should he end up with the role. The other roles are still being cast and things are looking good.

We are one month and one week away from shooting. I 'm pretty freaking excited and hope you all are too."
