The Movie Reporter has put up a video interview with none other than Tom DeSanto, co-producer of next year's blockbuster movie of the Transformers.

IESB.net caught up with Tom DeSanto at the 32nd Annual Saturn Awards to support Ringers: Lord of the Fans. Amoungst other things, DeSanto was asked a few questions regarding the Transformers movie. You can view the six minute clip on their website.

"We start shooting in three more weeks. So I think there is going to be a rapid fire announcement very rapidly coming your way. And there should be an announcement, I heard through the trades, that the announcement of Jon Voight being signed should be heading to the trades tomorrow"

"Don
[Murphy] was the new guy. But Don had the passion for the original voices. And he won me over! So I am supporting the original voice actors. You know, [Peter] Cullen and [Frank] Welker should be... They're the reason that people empathize with those characters. And you don't care about Megatron or Optimus Prime in alot of the other incarnations as much as you do as when those actors were voicing those parts"

Our own Burn has brought some new movie news to our attention. It looks like actress Rachel Taylor will have a role in the upcoming Transformers movie as reported by the Sydney Confidential. Here is a the copy of the article:

Transforming Taylor
From Sydney Confidential
May 03, 2006


"RISING actor Rachael Taylor is poised to take the "Aussiewood's next big thing" baton from compatriot Sophie Monk after being earmarked for a part in the big-budget remake of Tranformers: The Movie.

The stunning 21-year-old, who played vixen Sasha Forbes on shortlived Channel 7 drama Headland, has been in LA in recent months in a bid to land a breakthrough gig.
It appears that role has arrived, with industry reports linking her to Pearl Harbour director Michael Bay's adaptation of the cartoon.

Taylor, who has deferred studies at the University of Sydney, is tipped to play "a super-hot and super-smart codebreaker" in a revamped battle between duelling alien races the Autobots and the Decepticons.

Screen great Jon Voight, John Turturro (O Brother, Where Art Thou?), Michael Clarke Duncan (The Green Mile) and Josh Duhamel (Las Vegas) are also mooted for roles in the new flick"

Part of Burn's original post:"As an Australian i've never heard of her and I only caught Headland once and it reminded me too much of Home and Away and ... yeah, 'nuff said for that!"

Our own diablien has reported some good news for Transformers fans in the Chicago, Illinois area. Transformers The Movie will be returning to the silver screen this month starting Friday May 5. It will be playing at the Music Box at midnight on May 5, 6, 12, and 13.

Transformers: The Movie will play starting at Midnight on all 4 evenings. According to Ryan Yzquierdo, the movie will be played in their smaller theatre that holds about 150 people. They do have a 2nd theatre that holds about 700 people so maybe it'll play in the larger theatre based on how many people show up. Ryan Yzquierdo will be there representing SEIBERTRON.com on May 5th and 6th.

For more information, please visit Music Box Theatre's website at www.musicboxtheatre.com. If you need directions, please visit http://www.musicboxtheatre.com/Location.html.




diablien's original post: "I haven't been able to find any other posts about this but Transformers: The Movie is coming to the Music Box May 5, 6, 12, & 13 for the midnight movie!

I will be in attendance on May 6th with a whole bunch of my co-workers. It should be a fun and silly time. I think it's going to be in the small theatre though.

Anyone else going?"

An article has appeared on Yahoo! News about the economical advancements Alamogordo, New Mexico is currently undergoing due to the production of the Transformers movie to be shot this month near the White Sands Missile Range and Holloman Air Force Base.

"Along with hotels, restaurants and coffee shops, the movie has been a huge boost to the area's small businesses.

Nick Synder, who works at the Olive Branch coffee shop, told Action 7 News that set crews have been coming in daily.

McNichols said that Foxworth Galbraith has already sold thousands of dollars in wood that will be used for the movie's set."

In an interview at Sci Fi Wire John Voight has confirmed that, if he signs the papers, he will be playing the secretary of state in the forthcoming Transformers Movie.

Jon Voight told SCI FI Wire that nothing is finalized, but it looks likely that he'll be joining the cast of director Michael Bay's upcoming big-budget Transformers: The Movie. "I'm playing this ... well, we haven't signed the papers yet," Voight said in an interview. "But it looks like I'm going to play the secretary of state."

Dispite some errors in the article, i.e Jerry Bruckheimer has nothing to do with this movie and the lead is called Spike (not Sam), it's safe to assume that Voight's testimony confirms he has been offered the part and is considering taking it.

Reports from this weekends Canadian convention of Transformerscon are starting to flow in. Kary and Fussion of the Energon Pub had the following to report in this thread.

Kary:
"Just got back from the Convention here in Toronto... quite fun and well organized.

Just a few things that i remember from the Don Murphy panel.

Q: Is the whole Brawl, Devastator, Bonecrusher thing acurate?
A: Nothing is set in stone. They're still far off from the final script.

Q: What's happening with Soundwave in the movie?
A: Soundwave is still in the script but he might be put off until the next movie since currently having him as a CD and not mass-shifting could make it seem really strange for a lot of people.

Q: Any info on the soundtrack to the movie?
A: That will be probably done in the final cut of the movie...so nothing until then.

Q: Will Soundwave's voice be synthisized in the movie?
A: Yes."


Fussion:
The Michael McConnohie [G1 / RiD voice actor and RiD voice director] panel was terrific, several fans asked Michael on some
movie rumours.

One fan asked should Cullen and Welker reprise their roles as Megatron and
Optimus Prime?

Michael: "Absolutely, these voices are the heart of the character"

Later representative from Don came and asked Micheal:

Representative: "Should Optimus Prime have a "long front or flat front style
like the G1?"

(A loud "awe" sound came from the crowd in disappointment just on the question)

Michael: "Why change things....for the sake of change? Taco Bell had the little
dog as their marketing tool and sales soared, a new marketing manager came in
and got rid of the dog for the sake of change and since then sales dropped. I
my personal opinion NO don't change it just to have their fingerprint on Prime
leave it alone".

(The crowd came back with a loud around of applause)

Representative: "Should Bumblebee be a Volkswagon Bug or a Camaro?"

Micheal: "Bumblebee will always be a Volkswagon that's the character ,and Dan
Gilvezan (G1 voice actor) is Bumblebee.

(The crowd came back with a loud around of applause)

Representative: "What do you think of calling the "Autobot Matrix of
Leadership"..."Energon"?

Micheal: "Energon and the Matrix are totally different thinkings don't try the
change it".

(The crowd came back with a loud around of applause)

The panel ended with applause

While waiting for the next panel to begin, I was hanging around the lobby and
noticed a crowd of 6 to 7 people coming closer to the event and I noticed Don
Murphy in the middle of the crowd.

I approached him and I introduced myself...

Me: Good afternoon Mr. Murphy, I'm Dave

Don: No it's Don.

Me: I know your name is Don but I'm Dave

Don: Mr. Murphy is my father...I'm Don (as he smiled)

(He really likes being addressed by his first name and not by Mr. Murphy. He
also takes interest on what is your name. If you don't tell him right away he
will ask you repeatedly)

I got a picture with him, and it was great being the first fan to meet with him
in person.

Shortly after Don's panel began.

Here is a few highlights that were revealed:

* They have a deal with "General Motors" , most of the vehicles will be GM and
possibly another (not for sure)

* They will the classic transforming sound in the movie

* They will have in one form or another the original theme song in the movie

* Soundwave will be mentioned in the movie but may not be in the first movie,
and wait till the second (not sure as of yet) He stated "I don't want to rush
and develop Soundwave's character wrong, Soundwave is too important to get him
wrong"

* No filming will be done in Toronto

* Original voice actors will be auditioned for the roles of Prime and Megs

* There will be 5 Bots and 5 Cons

* A large battle scene between Prime and Megs with "Lot's of destruction"

* About 4 separate story lines will be running in the movie

* A separate Teaser Trailer will be filmed, since filming is at it's beginning
stages (2 months of film is not enough)

* There will be no mass shifting

Don also stated that he doesn't want to create a "Godzilla" movie and watch it
flop

Don says:

"The budget is well over $120 million"

"If Bumblebee is a Camaro he won't watch it"

"I'm a big transformer fan, that is why I started my boards two years ago for
feedback from the fans"

There are some new rumors surrounding the upcoming Transformers movie. These new rumors are about characters that will be in the movie. Some of the names and alt modes may shock you. Exile of Joesightings.com first reported that he saw the proofs for the height ratios and color proofs. He all said that the Decepticons that would appear in the movie would be Megatron, Vortex, Scorponok, Starscream, Bonecrusher, Devastator and Brawl, while the Autobots in the film are Optimus Prime, Ironhide, Ratchet, Bumblebee and Jazz. Then today, Wonkimus_Major of Don Murphy's Message Board has claimed the following was given to him by film insiders:

"Brawl--a police car (for a chase scene)
Devastator--M1 Abrams tank (and a single bot)
Bonecrusher--Mine clearing vehicle"

"
And then T.V. of Transformerslive.com reported the following:

"AUTOBOTS

Optimus Prime (semi)
Ratchet (ambulance, not an emergency vehicle or firetruck)
Ironhide (pickup truck)
Jazz (sports car)
Bumblebee (Chevrolet Camaro, possibly a '70s/'80s model)

DECEPTICONS

Megatron (tank, presumably)
Starscream (F-22)
Vortex (helicopter)
Soundwave (bastard version - a.k.a Kennywave)
Scorponok (minion)
Brawl (police car)
Devestator (tank)
Bonecrusher (Mine clearing vehicle)"


Now none of this has been confirmed, so pay attention to the news section for further updates.

What also can be read in this article is that it might be possible in spotting some militair aircraft such as a F-22 or an Osprey for example. Even the name Scorponok surfaces ones again!
