We have news that according to Nelson's blog at MichaelBay.com that Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg are signed up and will have the second TF movie ready for Summer 2009!!!

I am presenting this as a rumor for now, but the LA Times started the ball rolling with an article they did on Spielberg.

We'll let you know when we find out more about the sequel to the Transformers Movie in the Seibertron.com Movie News.

The LA Times reports it on page 2 of their web article, if you are looking for it.

Anyone who gave into the whole STRIKE hype is someone who gave into it!

Movies, especialy ones that make money have a schedual to keep, something like a year postponment can easily upset a following.

After all, why would they give some other franchise room to squeeze in and take away that next paycheck?

I never gave the strike much notice, something like that won't stop the giant wheels of progress.

Bay, Spielberg, Hasbro, Paramount, Hasbro, Takara, and so on, none of them would let the intrest sway on a cash cow like this.

Awesome!

I honestly was expecting the sequel to be delayed for a long time, at least until 2010!

2009 was my best case scenario. Long enough to make a quality film, but just soon enough that the wait won't be agonizingly painful.

The only thing that concerns me on this is the strike thing. This might mean that they are going to try to hurry up & get the movie slapped together before the strike hits....& if that's the case, we're going to see a sloppy, craptastic sequel that could have been better if they waited & focused more on quality rather than speed.

.....That & I hope Soundwave, Devastator, & the Dinobots(or Grimlock at least) makes it into the movie.

2009? i don't know that seems a bit rushed to me. as much as i want to see another tr movie i also want it to be done right and 09 just seems like it won't give all departments enough time to make the movie what it should be. i think a 2010 summer shot would be better, give everyone more time to relax and give it the love it needs. but in any case my fan side takes over and says OH YEAH 2009 BABY! rock on.

That means filming will have to start pretty soon.

Which means there has to be a story written even sooner... I hope it aint horrible.

Success of the last one should mean that there will be less complaining this time around for the sequel. If you believe this statement then you believe that President Bush can run for a third term!

Goes back to living his life and thanks God that the latter part of the above statement is just not possible!

Well, there was something sector 7 site, rumor about TF 2 with the dinobots, that would kick ass..., but just a rumor. There was something about it on Youtube too, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4hrFl2nbjA kinda the same thing we know, but it shows vids from fans at the end by sector 7, don't know if this is old news...

Can't wait to see the tf roster, tf designs etc.

Hopefully it'll be more centred around the tfs than the first one this time.

I wonder if they'll change Prime, Racthet etc to different veichles/ bot modes...

Posted by prowl24 on September 23rd, 2007 @ 4:02am CDT
2 years? Wow...they make TF2 in haste. That means the movie will be slighty decreased in quality (CG and plot) than TF1. As we all know, movies with quick production time always gone bad.

That's all, except the production team has made a quarter or a half of TF2 when its prequel was shown to public in the end of June 2007.
Re: (Rumor) Transformers 2-- Summer 2009 ? (358264)

Remenber that the designs are already out (Prime and others) so that´s less time in making the movie.

For that to happen, they would need to have already written a script, screenplay and have finished principal photography and filming by now.

That ain't gonna happen

Well, Sam and Mikaela will be back (here's hoping there is a beach scene! WOOHOOO!); I expect Josh Duhamel to be back..I can see him as a liaison between the military and the Autobots. Tyrese Gibson will be called back for a military roll against the 'Cons and a resurrected Megatron (yes, I guarantee he's coming back). Sector 7 is gone so Turturro is gone too...rule those characters out. Voight will be gone (probably a change in administration). The hackers will be gone. the most important thing is the fact that this movie will undoubtedly have a much bigger budget: more FX money means more robots.

Yay! A year and a half free of piss poor TF movies! 2009 just can't come slowly enough for me, roll on Transformers Animated and lets hope its so good they scrap the movies in favor of full length animated movie. Who's with me? No one I expect but that's my opinion on the matter.

I'm with you, mate (maybe not so much on the Animated part, though).

Still, there's more, MUCH more (sorry, I had to) to the franchise than a brainless teen comedy riddled with product placement and the usual Bay stereotyping/not-so-subtle-pro-Americanism.

Wow, you guys are already complaining about how bad the sequel will be. I guess that one's going to bomb too, right? Animated will be bad for all the reasons you say the movie was bad so don't get your hopes up.
I can't wait for the sequel(s) but I want them to take as long as they need to make them as amazing as the first. Long live the movie saga!

Also I find ironic that AK has a avatar of one of the most craptastic tf series (Energon, assuming he´s a fan) and always likes to bash the movie, but that´s just me...

See the only way a decent movie could be released by 2009 is if some aspects of it are already complete, like script, (test) CGI etc...

That in itself isn't an impossiblity, for all we know the bods responsable could've been working on a sequel before the first movie wrapped.

That's not official video, just some bonus content they stuck on the Sector Seven site.

It has nothing to do with TF2. I think it's safe to say that they have barely started making the movie, it would be impossible for them to have already post renders, especially of that Grimlock on the S7 site which is clearly just a 3D model of his G1 incarnation.

WAAAAY TOO EARLY! their not even in pre-production :S a script hasn't been done either, am i the only one who thinks its unlikely? Unless they've been keeping it well under wraps it seems unlikely it will be in 2009 or at the very end of the year.
