We have no idea how true this is but Ain'tItCool.com has posted news that Michael Bay (director of Bad Boys, The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, and Bad Boys 1 & 2) will direct the upcoming Transformers Movie.

However this isnt the first time Michael Bay has been wrongly connected with this movie. No word from Don Murphy on this either but see the story for yourself here at AintItCool.com.

Roland Emmerich is also stated as being interested in the Transformers movie but will most likely be shut out due to Dreamworks being quite pleased with Michael Bay's work on The Island (View official site).

Fact or fiction? You decide ...

How do you like the work that Gonzo has done with Galaxy Force so far? If you're Hasbro, you're clearly overjoyed at the prospect of having such talented animators on board again.

Hasbro has just re-upped their contract with Gonzo, post-GF/Cybertron. Not only will Gonzo be producing a direct-to-DVD animated feature to tie into the new Dreamworks movie, but they will now be producing the movie tie-in TV series. (And exactly who was braindead enough not to expect THAT to happen?)

The real fun is still to come tho. Since Hasbro hopes that the movie will be a huge hit, they fully intend to milk it for all it's worth. They've placed a two season order with Gonzo, totalling 100 episodes.

Yes. 100 episodes over two seasons. Same as we've been getting, but now done with talent, skill and wit.

The only reason I'm posting this is because we have received several emails regarding yesterday's news about the writers of the Transformers movie. While this might be news to some people, this news was originally posted by our very own movie news guru Raymond T almost a month ago in the news forum. You can view the original article posted on February 18th here.

For those of you who want the news repeated, here it is:

Writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are to write the DreamWorks/Paramount live-action adaptation of The Transformers, according to the Hollywood Reporter

Steven Spielberg is executive producing the film, based on the 1980s Hasbro toy line. The toy line revolved around two groups of robots, one led by Optimus Prime, who believes in tolerance and the sanctity of life, and the other by Megatron, who espouses survival of the fittest and the extermination of biological life.

But now Don Murphy, producer of the Transformers live action movie, has confirmed on his site/board that the release date for the movie has indeed been pushed back. The release has now been set for a Thanksgiving 2006 opening.

"Whereas before we were "shooting for" Summer 06 now we have officially announced we are coming out Thanksgiving 06".

With the first draft of the Angry Films/Dreamworks SKG Transformers movie submitted and approved and Steven Spielberg putting his own people behind adapting the workings of the script, John Rogers' job is done when it comes to the movie at this time. At his weblog, John Rogers had the following to say in his latest submission.

"Trans-pals, but you may wish to take a break from inflating my hit count. No further news will be coming out of here for a while -- I won't be working on the movie for the next few months.

Nothing horrible, everything's cool. But I was technically contracted to start another movie when the Transformers gig popped up. The producers of that flick -- including one-of-us Akiva Goldsman -- were real gentlemen about the situation and stepped aside for the duration of the high-intensity TF first draft. They didn't have to, and the fact they did is one of the coolest things I've encountered in my 10-odd years of TV and film writing.

The next Transformers production pass, adressing specific producer notes, will be executed by another writer or set of writers. I'll be off doing this new project, will lock in the shooting draft for Fatal Frame (I meet with the director tomorrow) then will probably swing back in later on for a polish --I'm still under contract for TF. This is all part of the business we call "show", and you should all be assured that the project is a.) on schedule and on track and b.) still has rabidly protective and enthusiastic producers riding herd on it.

But now you only have Don and Tom DeSanto to harass. Sic 'em."

Murphy wrote the following on a thread on his board.

"The final decision will be made by a director....and has NOT been made yet.
But I would be VERY suprised if Cullen and Welker didn't reprise their famous roles.
Your voices have been heard.
Now move on to something else!"


In recent weeks the rumors had been flying that Steven Spielberg himself has gotten very hands on in the project of the movie. It was recently announce that a director has been appointed by spielberg (according to some sources) and the name of the director to take up the job will be announced before the end of this month.
Don Murphy added to this the following in another response on his board.

"a want some hidden news tidbits.... Steven has hand picked a writing team to come in and do some quick work on the script that he supervises".

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".

Main producer Don Murphy of the live action Transformers movie, which is due to hit theaters by summer 2006, has posted on his site donmurphy.net, that he has read the first draft and the movie is right on track.

"We all met with Dreamworks. Everyone of us is happy. John will have a redraft with some changes made by NEXT weekend and then Steven will read it. Things are on track.

The fans will NEVER be happy with the movie. So all we can do is make a great movie".
