Don Murphy has posted an update on the Don Murphy Message Board, Addressing the rumoured involvement of Peter Cullen and Frank Weller. Plus he talks about a possible solution to the 'mass/size shift' problem making smaller alt-modes unlikley to appear in the film.

Remember - everything you post is read (at least by me) and when there seems to be a consensus it will be addressed if at all possible.

For example, a huge amount of fans want Cullen and Welker. While the truth is (no matter what you read anywhere else) that no one has been approached to do ANY voices (the process of filmmaking will make that the final decision of the director) it is something that has been heard and will be addressed when the time comes.

I can't go into where the story is going, only to say John is great and I have invited him on to the board.

And to put an end to a controversy that I never understood, I am pleased to tell you that John HAS come up with a plausible explanation that will allow some of the bots to mass/size shift.

This was important to a lot of you and I wanted you to know you have been heard.

Will it work? Will it be any good? Will it make it on to the screen? Who the hell knows?

The only thing I know for sure is we're trying here.

Don Murphy decided to post some more stuff on his board. With his most recent post, the producer of the up coming Transformers movie helped disspel some recent rumors that have been flying around, about possible directors of the Transformers movie and about the Real Steel movie, which will also be produced by Murphy.

There is no director for Transformers.
So no one is OUT of the running.

REAL STEEL is based on the Richard Matheson story STEEL. It is a development deal. Maybe it will be a movie someday.

Mostow knows about Transformers. He is NOT the director. And he's NOT not the director.

Zemeckis toyed with the idea but DID pass.

We are pursuing some big guns as we speak.

Don Murphy has been rather active on his Transformers forum over the last couple of days, dropping several hints about the upcoming Transformers movie. Here's some quotes from the man himself:

"I want to point out again- if ALL we wanted were robots smasking shit we would be doing this all CGI or mo cap or 2D.
This is going to be an event LIVE ACTION film in which HUMANS are a significant component."

"There will be several human characters.
And several Autobots.
And several Decepticons.

Thus only a FEW of each will get screen time to be fully developed.
They all could appear, but like Wolverine, only a few will be prominent."

In response to a question on Don's previous comment of there being 7 core characters:

"7 is still in play, but again, number 7 might have minmal emphasis- think Iceman in part 1"

In response to a question regarding whether the Transformers are from Cybertron or not:

"They come from Cybertron
They are not man made
They are here because we have the matrix (probably can't call it that anymore)"

"Of course you can always make it
(the movie) about just the TFs- just not in a live actions summer event film."

In response to a comment regarding the possibility of film that features only Transformers, and how they interact with one another, discuss, plot, dream etc:

"Well for clarity you are NOT going to get a CG animated film in which the TFS do all that. Or rather, I believe Paramount is releasing a direct to video film of that very thing."

A rumor has come my way about the movie that people may be interested to hear. A while back Producer of the upcoming movie, Don Murphy had already said that he would love to have Jonathan Mostow to take a seat at the director's chair for this one. From this the rumor got started that he might get the part. Later it was announced that no director had been assigned for the movie yet.

A source of mine now told me that Jonathan Mostow has been pointed out as being the new director for an unknown movie called Real Steel! According to the rumor talks have also started to bring in writer Jeremy Leven (writer and screenwriter of movies like Don Juan DeMarco and Crazy as Hell), to be part of the team as story editor. The story in Real Steel is supposed to be about 2,000 pound robots that that battle each other in a boxing competition.

However the movie is produced by Don Murphy's Angry Films and distribution is done by Dreamworks SKG. According to my source, this is no co-incidence. According to him Real Steel is actually a fake name for what is actually the Transformers movie!

There are no basis to believe this is in fact true. If Real Steel is in fact a real movie to be made, this is all just a co-incidence. But I do have to admit that Don Murphy, Dreamworks and a story about 2,000 pound robots fighting each other are alot of facts to not take this rumor under serious consideration.

Don Murphy has confirmed on his site and board the news that was reported earlier today. John Rogers will indeed be writing the screenplay for the Transformers movie.

On his board, Don Murphy posted the following message in one of the threads there.


John Rogers is a tremendous writer.
We all read his draft of Catwoman.
It was awesome.
We all thought the film Catwoman sucked ass.
Remember one of my fellow producers on this is Lorenzo D'buonaventura who worked on Catwoman at Warners.

Films turn out good or bad and get rewritten and other people get credit all the time.

John Rogers is one of us. He gets this.

Over at Don Murphy's Board, he tells that they are close to choosing a writer.

"Hey there here's what we got----

Transformers- we're cloing in on a writer and choosing to go with a younger guy who grew up with the all of you fans. Should be announced in the coming weeks. Dreamworks and Spielberg very much still want the film for Summer '06 so it'll be hard- but GOOD.

Also on the main site under "Human Stuff" "Make Don Murphy Happy" I've listed a bunch of very obscure stuff that I've been looking for for like forever. If any of you can help, email me at my hotmail account.

Under this thread I'd like to hear replies to the following-

"In the 1980s I grew up on Transformers. I loved GI Joe and dug He Man. I also liked a hell of a lot.....????"

What kind of books, comics or properties does the Transformers generation want to see make it to the big screen?"

Dreamworks Animation to float on the stock martket

Transformers News: Dreamworks Animation to float on the stock martket

E-Commerce News reports plans by DreamWorks to split off its animation business and to float it on the stock market as an IPO have been fueled by a string of box office hits. Its latest blockbuster was "Shrek 2" which has been the third-highest grossing film of all time in the U.S. and broke the single-day box office sales record by grossing $44.8 million, according to the SEC filing.

The article mentions that if Dreamworks splits its Animation department and and have it float on the stock market, based on the recent succes of Shrek 2, Dreamworks Animation could stand to make a fixed profit.

Since Dreamworks, and most likely Dreamworks Animation, will play a major part in the making of the upcoming Transformers movie, set for release in 2006, this news could mean that Dreamworks may be willing to invest more time and money into future projects, including into the Transformers.
