Don Murphy, the lead producer for the new Transformers Live action Movie, has once again given us an update on the current status of the movie on his board. The following has been directly take from his post.

"Had a great first week on SHOOT 'EM UP. Truly amazing. Our cast is wonderful, a great work ethic, and the director is super prepared and getting good stuff. This could be a special, and suprising film. Susan and I are psyched. We'll know more this week IF there are gonna be some Toronto Stooge visits. It is all about timing. I hope so.

On TF, I hoped to be able to tell you about our start date. I can say it is looking like late May. I can tell you that Tom and I are excited. I can tell you that Michael and Ian are working hard as hell. I can tell you that Robert and Alex are pulling all-nighters. But I can't give you the exact date until the green light comes. It will come. Maybe next week.

What I will point out here for y'all, is that the project is at a crossroads. The smarter of you could tell that things were happening behind the scenes when you read Michael's post on his site. EVERYONE has been informed by me of the ONE consensus in fandom- the original voices for Cullen and Welker. Everyone including Michael gets it. BUT not everyone supports it. If I believe the film should be tied IN GENERAL to the original material there is an equally vocal group within the production who believe that we should be re-starting our own mythology and that what was in the past stays in the past (with the exception of a nod or two). The other side has strong, rational arguments for their point of view. In their point of view, the original characters don't even need to look like you remember them, ie. Prime remains a truck but a completely new truck I don't know which point of view will prevail- that is Michael's call. The conclusion, either way, is coming soon.

What I will say, though, is be patient. We are trying to make a huge worldwide box office success based on Transformers. I hope you'll like it no matter what. Your voice is coming through ( you can tell that from Michael's post too). We're nearing the finish line on the one hand and the start line on the other.

Hang tight Stooges, hang Tight".

When asked if there has been any official contact made with either Peter Cullen (voice of the original Optimus Prime and Ironhide) and Frank Welker (voice of the original Megatron, Soundwave, and a whole host of other characters, Don Murphy responded with the following

"They are both fully aware and contacted"
