a sh*t load of CG that's how. Think "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow".

ewwwww

I still believe excessive CGI is grotesque.

What I don't understand is how they can call it "live-action" when there is so much CG animation involved.

Whatever...if it looks cool in 2006, I'll go see it.

Ain't it the truth. They'd better use some real damn objects in it or they'll be compared to "Sky Capt. and the World of Tomorrow" instead of something more fitting like "Star Wars". Star Wars, uses actual models and sets and then there's the CG. But at least when there is CG, it looks 90% real.

Making live action movies for giant robots is going to be risky (whether for Transformers, Big O, or even Neon Genesis Evangelion). If they think the only way to make the movie is CG, then they'll make something like Sky Captain...if they try to make it live action first and then putin CG for the really impossible scenes, then it'll be like Star Wars.

If you can't tell, I'd rather it be like the latter of the two (star wars).

I love transormers and all but this movie is probably going to turn out horrible because i don't think they will get the size of transformers when the are mechs and when they are transformed.

Shocked *gasm*

And in all seriousness...this might not turn out half bad. I'm sure visually it will be absolutely stunning, I just hope they have a team of good writers to pull of a great story.
Either way, I'm going to be there opening day! Just imagine...that huge climactic Optimus/Megatron battle on the big screen. *melts*

Uh, and does anyone happen to have a cast list? Or at least know if Starscream's going to be in it? ~_~

11/19/04: Transformers Movie producers meet with Simon Furman
The live action Transformers movie producers Tom DeSanto and Don Murphy have met with writer Simon Furman to discuss the live action move. From Don Murphy's message boards:

Very happy to report that the talented Tom DeSanto and I had the luck to meet this morning with Simon Furman, Transformers Historian Extraordinaire. We brought him up to speed on the movie as it stands now. He brought us a glimpse into the dark and deep recesses of his noggin. It was a very exciting first meeting, under a sunny sky in the courtyard of the old Charlie Chaplin lot (now owned by the the Jim Henson heirs) and was FOR SURE the beginning of many good things to come.

So now you know......and soon the world will know.

You can read the original post here.


Yes, I know the the site the post is down is having a "slight problem".

Frank Welker and Peter Cullen are for certain!
Since Chris Latta (original voice of Starscream) has passed away, not for sure on who will do Screamer.

He died a good ten years ago. A fair number of G1 TF voice actors have passed on, with Latta (who also did Wheeljack and Sparkplug Witwicky for TF and Cobra Commander for GI Joe) and Scatman Crothers who did Jazz being among the most well known.

As for Screamer's voice, there have been several voice actors who played him since Latta's death. The one who did it his cameo in Beast Wars did a damn good job (an almost perfect replica of Latta's voice), as has the one who has played him in Armada and Energon.

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Michael Bay is in talks to direct the DreamWorks/Paramount live-action adaptation of "The Transformers," Hasbro's popular 1980s toy line of giant robots that morph into cars, trucks, planes, ships and other technological creations

The move would reteam the director with DreamWorks, which is handling domestic distribution on the movie. Bay is helming DreamWorks' upcoming summer release "The Island," a co-production with Warner Bros. Pictures.


Bay also would reunite with writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who, under their two-year, first-look deal with DreamWorks, rewrote "Island" and wrote "Transformers."

The Transformers are divided into two groups of robots, one led by Optimus Prime, which believes in tolerance and the sanctity of life, the other by Megatron, which espouses survival of the fittest and the extermination of biological life.


A Nov. 17, 2006, release date has been set. Bay's credits include the two "Bad Boys" movies, "Pearl Harbor," "Armageddon" and "The Rock."
