Don Murphy has given us another quick update on the progress of the live action movie on the board of his site. The following has been taken directly from his post.

"Oh yeah, you want TF news.

- the film is location scouting in Canada, the American Southwest, and Northeast. Not in Vancouver (for that tool who insisted we were). No I am not going to tell you where we are scouting. It won't matter until locations are locked.

- design preliminaries are going full steam ahead at last. No, there's nothing to show you yet.

- the latest redraft proceeds apace. Many changes to the second half I believe. Scaling back the number on each side probably back to the original 5 or 6 after they increased in number. Should have something this week or early next.

People are back in town and TF is a priority for myself, for Tommy D and for Hasbro and Dreamworks.

Spread the word and stay tuned!!!!"

Roberto Orci, half of the current writting team of the forthcoming DreamWorks Transfomers Movie has let it be known that Arcee has been cut from the movie. He writes on the Don Murphy Message Board:

I hope that all those who hate Arcee will be gracious to those who love her. And to all those who wanted to see her, you should know the decision was not based on a mere dislike of the character, nor an attempt to defeminize the franchise. The decision is, at this point, story driven

Neil Kaplan, the voice actor of Ro-Tor and of course Optimus Prime from Robots In Disguise, has contacted Don Murphy by E-mail. This hot on the heels after Gary Chalk (Armada, Energon and Cybertron Optimus Prime) made a similar contact with the producer of the new Transformers Live action movie.

The E-mail, which we can report was actually send several weeks ago, was made public by Don Murphy on the board of his site. The following is Neil Kaplan's E-mail as it was posted by Murphy.

Hello Mr. Murphy...

My name is Neil Kaplan. I am one of only three actors in the world to officially play Optimus Prime; leader of the Autobots.

I realize that in the grand Transformer universe Peter Cullen is Sean Connery (THE man!)... and Gary Chalk is Timothy Dalton... and I am thought of as "the George Lazenby of the Transformer world!"

--You know, I always did like "On Her Majesty's Secret Service."--

Since posting Gary Chalk's e-mail on your website, I have received several pieces of wonderful e-mail from fans in urging me to get involved with the long awaited live action adventures.

I just want you to know that I am very interested in playing ANY of the many transformers in the
upcoming films.

And yes, if given the chance I would be thrilled to read for the role of Optimus Prime.

Thank you sincerely for your time and consideration.

Respectfully,
Neil Kaplan

P.S. you will find attached a one minute demo of some of my animation work, including Optimus Prime from the FOX-TV series "Transformers: Robots in Disguise."

Don Murphy, producer of the upcoming Transformers live action movie, has given another one of his Sunday updates over on the board of his site. The following is an excerpt from his post, related to how things currently stand with the movie.

"Roberto, Alex, Michael and Steven met to go over everyone’s notes and now the writers are hard at work on a rewrite- one that, since it will be further along I will feel more comfortable telling you about, I hope. The initial budget has gone in to the studio and there is now the inevitable back and forth about this and that to close the deal. The film is on track to Greatness.

Basically we are in the “in-between” place, just before Xmas too, as the various pieces of the movie work themselves out. It all feels good, but things need to coalesce before there is any meaningful news to discuss".

It has been reported that Paramount Pictures have struck a deal to buy DreamWorks, makers of the forthcoming Transformers Movie. The article reads:

Under the deal, Paramount would gain control of DreamWorks' live-action movie production operation and its relatively small, 60-title library, which includes such Oscar-winning movies as "American Beauty" and "Gladiator."
It also would give Paramount the worldwide distribution rights to all animated movies made by DreamWorks Animation, which was spun off last year to public shareholders and would not be part of the purchase.


It is not clear whether this will affect the making of the Transformers Movie, but there will certainly be some changes at DreamWorks over the coming year.

Don Murphy announced on his board today that they have added another producer to the crew for the Transformers movie. His name is Ian Bryce. In the following excerpts, taken from the board, Don Murphy tells us about Bryce and what function he will fill.

"Welcome to the project Mr. Ian Bryce. Ian will produce this movie with Tom Desanto, Mr. Lorenzo, and myself. He will have the hardest and most thankless job of all, functioning in the line producer position. Basically, that means that he makes sure we all finish on time and on schedule. At gunpoint if need be.

Ian is one of the biggest and most successful people in Hollywood in his job. I first crossed paths with him ten years ago when Oliver Stone and I tried to do a good update of PLANET OF THE APES. Since that time he’s done a few little films that you have heard of, like SPIDER-MAN and SAVING PRIVATE RYAN. Most recently he worked with out director on the terrific summer film, THE ISLAND".

"Ian, having worked with Michael before, also will be having significant impact on the creative decisions of the film. Yes, he knows about the voice actor movement. Yes, he knows about the board and like the writers, Tom and the DW execs, he will hopefully come and interact with you. Yes, this is big news for the project insofar as you only bring someone like this on when you are seriously close to making the film."

Don Murphy, Producer of the upcoming Transformers movie, has been contacted by someone claiming to be Gary Chalk. On his board, Murphy expresses that he believes it was actually the Optimus Prime Voice actor from Armada, Energon and Cybertron, who of course first started as Optimus Primal in Beast Wars.

Don Murphy wanted to know what the fans thought about this so he placed the E-mail for all to read. The following is a direct copy of the Mail, as posted on the Don Murphy Board.

"Dear Don,
I have been voicing Optimus prime for 12 years. I had heard that you will be doing a feature length film some time in the near future.
Will it be possible for me, a Canadian, to read for the part of Optimus? Just curious. I've been working my butt off doing the ADR for very little money and the prelay earlier in the 90's as well as the Botcon conventions. I did the ADR as a personal favor for my friends at voicebox productions and because I like doing the show. I met a lot of the fans of the show and found their passion for animation quite energizing for me. All I am asking is that you give me an opportunity to audition for the movie if it ever comes into being. Drop me a line.
I'd love to hear from you. Garry Chalk, (Optimus Prime)
Ah, what the hell. Yes I am a big fan of your movies. From Hell is my favorite.

Garry Chalk"
