Slash Film was at the set of the new Indiana Jones movie, which stars Harrison Ford and Shia LaBeouf, who is best known for playing Sam Witwicky in the latest Transformers movie.

While on the set, the reporters from the movie site got the chance to talk to director/producer Steven Spielberg. While their article is mostly about the fourth Indiana Jones movie, Steven Spielberg dropped a snippet surrounding the sequel to the record-breaking Michael Bay Transformers movie. The following is taken directly from the article.

"The "story" for Transformers 2 will be finalized in a couple weeks, and if the writers guild strike doesn't happen in November, they will be able to go into production on "number 2" pretty quickly".

Arcee, Grimlock, Tidal Wave, Soundwave, A Decepticon Combiner that isn't Devestator :PRAY:

It would be cool if they would open a forum or something on the movie site to let fans voice their opinion on the next movie's robot cast. We've been vocal, sure, but not very organised. I doubt the movie people are going to read through the thousands of "who do you want in TF2" threads out there...

I think the Dinobots are a dumb idea. The general audience wont grasp the concept of robot dinosaurs, since the whole focus of the first movie was mechanical devices turning into robots. My guess is more robots, more mayhem

Seeing how many rewrites and edits that the first movie got (remember the Transformers lines were not locked in stone till the very last minute), the script that is pumped out by November will be very different to what the final script is.

Wonder if D Murphy's hissy fit was because that fanfic hit close to the mark on some previously discussed ideas...

This film is either going to a rushed disaster, or has been planned since (before) the first movie wrapped.

As always let us pray (to me) that it is the latta...

Er latter!

*giggle*

Shalom!

I think if you talk with alot of fans, most want the "Dinobots" without them actually being dinosaurs.

Even then, I think most fans would be happy with (or in my case, would prefer) just having Grimlock, and he could be a vehicle just like everyone else. He pulled off his mustang-mode in the Alternator line, no reason he can't pass of as an armor car or some other large, powerful vehicle. For me, the other Dinobots weren't as interesting, and were just carbon copies of the same basic character.

That's really quick for a script though, hope it's good!

I think Grimlock should be sufficient for now but think a dinosaur would still be good but one more like Dinobot frombeast wars.Real looking on the outside and more mechanical in robot form.

If the story/script is finalized, what difference does the writer's guild strike have on beginning production?

As to characters.. Wheeljack and the brothers (Swipe and Streaker) would be good, as would Dinobots/Grimlock (the "basic concept" of the first movie was robots turning into alternate forms. Whether this be cars/jets/miscellaneous mechanical or electronic items/robot dinosaurs or animals/etc makes no difference.) and Soundwave or Shockwave.
