Seibertron's own Roll_Out has informed us that superherohype.com have posted information pertaining to the second Transformers Movie.

It looks like a production designer has already been hired for Transformers 2. Nigel Phelps, who worked with director Michael Bay on Pearl Harbor and The Island, is listed on the United Talent Agency's website as having the job. Phelps is currently working on Universal's The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.

Good to know that even though the writers Strike has stopped many major films, that there are still some wheelings and dealings going on.

Cool... but... uh... what does a production designer do? :???:

Still, nice to know the movie is moving along, if only at a snail's pace from now until we get a shooting script.

Production Designer is more or less in charge of how the film will look and feel. They have to make the film look consistant in style. It's big job.

They work directly with the directors and producers, as well as the Director of photography to decide colour palette, the costume designer to get the costumes right, the Set builders and so forth and so forth.

They can make the movie in pantomine now, since they don't have the script done yet.

Transformers silent film who's with me.

I'd like to know the official status of the script. We don't know anything other than the fact that its not done.

Why can't we just wait and see what happens?

Haven't we learned a valuable lesson when it came to the first movie? We expected: amazing, great, live action, Peter Cullen's voice, heavy metal, hystoric lines and a consistent plot worthy of the original cartoon.

What did we get? Probably about half of everything. Not nearly as much as we hoped, but it turned out alright, not great, not mind-blowing, even the story changed somehow and the names of some elements (no... i still can't call it "spark", to me it is and will always be "Matrix"). It hit the target it was aimed at, and before you say anything... no. It wasn't us. The target is kids and adults who barely know Transformers and don't care about great stories and nostalgia, they want quick Summer thrills and that's it. They got it to the sound of almost 300 million dollars worth of tickets sold world-wide.
If i was interested in the script i'd be one of the guys working on it.
I think i'll just do what i did before Michael Bay "ruined my childhood memories": i'll sit tight, watch some YouTube sneak peaks, read some pointless articles and wait for a movie that part of me will hate with a passion, but that in the end will end up in my DVD collection anyway. Right next to "Transformers - The Movie".

Besides remember this: every single one of the first Batman movies that came out in the 90s sucked so bad they gave me temporary cancer. Then "Batman Begins" was made.

I don't know who told you that "spark" & "Autobot Matrix of Leadership" were the same, but in TF mythology a "spark" is a TF's life force, & is more comparable to a G1's robot's personality component.

In fact, IIRC, I believe that originally they were going to call the Allspark the Matrix, but didn't because Neo sucks, so they decided to make it the Energon cube, but didn't because fans quickly pointed out that energon was food, not a source of life....so if anything was going to be matrix-like, it would have been the allspark (& thank Primus none of that happened).

I still say that the Allspark is more comparable to Vector Sigma/the Oracle than to the Matrix.

It probably is, but in the comics, IIRC, it was called the "Creation Matrix" & held some small ounce of Primus' power to give life, similar to what the Allspark does. In the cartoon, it just held the wisdom of previous autobot leaders.....& apparently an anti-giant planet Transformer virus......
