Producer of the upcoming Transformers movie, Don Murphy, has been chatting up a spell for his site once again. In one of the threads on his own board, the producer has started answering a whole host of questions.

Here follow some quotes by Don Murphy taken from his board.

"Hey guess what- we have started to work on cool ComiCon stuff for TF- I will announce when I can."

"We have started some pre-visualization on the film- preliminary- looks fab."

"Hasbro needs to start the toy line in the next month to make the deadline to have toys out a month before our film."

"In John's script there were only 4 on each side...
(massive intake of breath as everyone goes what the fuck?)
Now the plans are 5 main ones.

Megs...Optimus... of course
Soundwave (no longer a blender) Bumblebee (thanks to Herbie not likely a Bug) Jazz.... Starscream.... RC.....more to come...."

"In the meeting on Thursday Hasbro all but DEMANDED that Soundwave mass shift.... the writers seemed okay with it...."

"Interestingly Ratchet is currently there too....
The writers want to make him an ambulance...
Dreamworks doesn't....
And Hasbro actually doesn't mind if he is an ambulance or a firetruck...."

"Hasbro seemed anxious to get Soundwave into musical form to unleash Ravage even if it made no sense."

"Official website ASAP- literally as soon as we can....
Final ten TFs chosen- 3 weeks
Colors/Models of those ten finalized JULY 1
Prep begin Sept 1
Shoot begin Dec 1
all Tentative"

"No Quintessions in Movie One.
The movie is gonna be much more of the origina film than it ever was before."

"The weridest thing about the meeting is that ONLY because of this board was anyone trying to protect G1 or the looks of Megs and Optimus. Hasbro doesn't mind what it is as long as they know as soon as possible. Dreamworks is intent on RE-inventing the property. You guys are being heard, but it is tougher now that it was PRE Bay, and it is not Bay it is lots of people trying to get this done. There were 29 people in the room."

"No idea about film 2 and 3
and it was sounding in that room like the Autobots may have been here since at least biblical times"

Check out this article at CNN.com for a wrap up of the current Michael Bay-related facts, summarizing Don Murphy's comments earlier today. This is one of the first main-stream (i.e. not a film site or Transformers site) to talk about Michael Bay working on the Transformers movie!

For the last few days rumors have been flying, about the envolvement of director Michael Bay and him directing the upcoming Transformers movie. Don Murphy himself has given the updates on what is going on at the moment.

Murphy explains the following on his board and had this to say:

"Okay
Now
There is NO deal
so anything could happen
But Variety will report in the morning
that Michael Bay is in negotiations to direct the film
He feels like a good choice for what we are trying to make
will let you know more when I can"


Since Variety is a subscription only site, Don Murphy was kind enough to post the article on his board.

To sum this all up, Michael Bay is in talks to direct the movie, but at the moment, the deal has not yet been cemented. As Murphy mentioned on his board;

"Bay got scared off Superman when Fat Knowles leaked it. Just up and left. If he did that here, then we are back to looking for a director. And you might not have gotten a good one.

So I know Michael is happy this is out in the world- great- but we need to be chilled and get him on board".

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.

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."

On the board of his private site www.donmurphy.net, the co-producer of the upcoming Transformers live action movie gave fans some new found hope regarding the movie.

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".
