According to the latest news from Dark Horizons, the Holloman Air Force Base in Alamogordo, New Mexico is set to be a "major location" in the upcoming film. This news shouldn't be considered 100% proof, however, as the wording of the original statement casts some doubt as to whether or not filming will actually take place there.

Don Murphy has posted a "Non-update" on his message board. In this non-update Murphy announced their was new draft last week for the upcoming Transformers movie, and another draft may come in next week. He also said "The cast is coming together nicely, with Shia officially announced as well as some Vegasplaya and Cowboys at Midnight coming soon.". Here is Mr. Murphy's entire post:

"Non-update
As some of you figured out, the film is now moving so fast that information is leaking out everywhere. That was another reason for ending the Sunday ritual- you'll find stuff out whether I tell you or not.

There is a new draft from last week that I would discuss in the Secret Blog, if we had one, except I am told that yet another draft may come in next week. Perhaps with a bigger role for Bobby Bolivia. I'm hoping.

The cast is coming together nicely, with Shia officially announced as well as some Vegasplaya and Cowboys at Midnight coming soon.

I feel good. Two weeks left on Shoot 'Em Up, but two HARD weeks. Then Transformers.

Go see Hard Candy if it is out near you. Best Film Idea Ever.

Hey my last thing I do in Toronto may be to go to the Toronto Con? How crazy is that????

Peace out."

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".

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.""

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.
