    Talk about us fans jumping the gun....ol' Mikey finally sends us an update and his reaction to the "leaked script"

    Edit: I should have said in the title...that the script is older then the date said in the review. Bay states its way off.

    No prob. I think the fans can at least rest a little easier and realise that the leaked script isn't at all what the final product will be. It all seemed a tad too easy to get their mits on something like that. It was probably the very first draft that they chucked and rewrote from there on.

    I hope they fixed all the crap that was wrong with the reviewed one. 4ft tall Soundwave?! No talking Bumblebee?! Very little talking from the Transformers at all?! Come on!!

    Bay sounds positive about the filming (Dispite the heat strokes), so I imagine he's on a role in getting the live action done on schedule.

    I imagine the reason TFs didnt talk much in the script that was reviewed is because they werent sure of who was going to be in the movie when it was written. you can't write good dialogue unless you have a character in mind to be speaking it. all the autobots have different personalities, and have different ways of talking. For example... Prowl. He always tends to make a big deal out of little issues, and has an annoying, overconfident way of interacting with "lower ranked" autobots. you couldnt have him speaking the same kind of lines you would give to someone like Ironhide or Sunstreaker.

    So until they had the cast nailed down, it would be kind of impossible to write decent dialogue for them, and just assign the names to the words later on.

    Sounds like a nice action flick.

    I think its pretty clear now that dialogue is Optimus' specialty. In other words, no draft/script is likely to have indepth Autobot-Autobot interaction, especially not with any trademark character quirks.
    This is not going to be page 1 of Furman's "Eye of the Storm" either. TFs are going to be a mystery, there will not be any social insights.

    My guess is the Autobots will have as much 'persona' as the navy seals, following an actual character's orders. I can except this.

    Well just because it's different from what we know about the "old script" doesn't mean it's better! Yeah, there's a good chance, but damn, what if they went and made it even worse? Haha

    We'll just have to see eh?

    Well, not necessarily good news that the script is old, but let's hope. :)  Especially if they us all freaking the hell out over some of these things.

    Cool stuff otherwise, with all the shooting and military stuff.

    I think that'll be one of the best things about the movie- thoroughly military style Decepticons.

    yeah.....cos people never go to see a film once they know whats in it/about, they walk around the streets with their fingers in their ears and a blindfold on just in case they come across a reveiw before they see it. Give me a break, they dont want it to be criticised and force a change. Criticism worries moneymen as moneymen always worry about return and moneymen make things happen.

    Hmmm. this gives me a "little" hope. Not a lot though. The script certainly changed but likely not a LOT since he worrys the old version will still spoil everything for a lot of folks. :p

    I'm glad to hear this is an old script, but I was indeed sceptical of the reliability of what had been leaked out. It didn't make any sence to have a Transformers movie with little talking from the Trandformers themselves. Yes humans should be involved, but there just didn't seem to be enough interaction with the Transformers so I saw this as more of a WIP script.

    HOpefully if our major complaints (bumblebee, soundwave) haven't been fixed, then they could be now. I hope too that they can get different alt modes for bumblebee too at this point.

    Hopefully this early draft was the one that they kept arguing over if Bumblebee was too much like Herbie and that someone was like 'He needs to talk, fcuk this." and changed it.
