    Could be interesting, could be crap. It all depends on Bay's wrighting skills. I'm not going to get all upset about this (like I think a lot of people will). I don't know of anything that he's written before, so he could turn out to be a really great wrighter. It's not at all surprising that the TF's are already designed. As that part of the movie making process wasn't really hindered by the strike, they probably kept on working on the new bots. By the way it sounds, he just basically wrote up the basics of it, and the wrighters will take that and make a real script out of it (fix it up to actual script standards). I currently have confidence that this will be a cool sequel, as the first movie was good, imo. I'm guessing that Hasbro has already started work on the toy line for it. No Dinobots doesn't really bother me, but I still think a Movie version of Grimlock would be cool. Especiall if he turned into some kind of tank and was primative minded (aka a real beast in battle).

    not like he wrote it word for word

    he calls it a template :p 

    but anyways! this is exciting news IMO

    im glad to hear that Bay wasnt lettin the strike take a big hit on this movie. He's got a date to hit and he aint lettin' anything stand in his way and i think thats great.

    Go Bay!

    I see this as getting fast tracked. I wouldn't be surprised if they start shooting within two months.

    If Bay wrote the movie too, I'm just going to have to sit back and let my higher function shut down and enjoy the pretty special effects.

    :lolol  Such truth. The script is probably crayon doodles of explosions.

    It´s what I do in all of Bay´s movies. Their pure entertainemnt. No hidden message, no politcal context, no crap. Just pure unadulreated awsome action!

    alo I belive that he went talk to spileberg about some ideas.

    I hope this merely means he's written a treatment, or a bare-bones script, because Primus help us if otherwise.

    I'll admit that made me chuckle.

    Supposedly he writes the outlines to most of his films anyways.

    This can only be better than Tom DeSanto's original outline for the first movie.

    Y'know, the horrible ET rip-off which he insisted to get writing credits for on movie #1, despite the studio not buying the outline until after the screenwriters had already started working on the script, and the screenwriters not having even READ the outline either until after they had finished their intial draft. So the screenplay wasn't based on the outline in any way whatsoever, yet DeSanto still demanded a writing credit for it.

    Well, if this is the case, and the script writers are back to work this week we can hopefully be given a cast list soon.


    Bay as only written an outline so when the final script is done they can start shooting, fingers crossed the outline that's been worked on (believe it was originally penned by the writers anyway) will be quickly remembered, and well written.


    New characters = good
    New characters with no characterisation = bad

    If Michael Bay wrote even an outline for the film, wouldn't that make him a scab, at least in the eyes of the WGA? I mean, I don't care. Just as long as Transformers 2 is great. But, I wonder if he'll get in trouble for doing that. Hopefully not.

    I don't think he'll get in any kind of trouble for this. It would be completely different if he wrote the final script for the movie (even then he wouldn't get into trouble for it, it's not like you have to be in the guild to wright at all for movies). By the sound of it, he does this for all the movies he directs, so it's not like this is something new for him.

    Late June was the date quoted recently, provided the writers' strike ended soon... So I think we're on track! :)

    nothing's gonna change. we're gonna be getting hideously designed junkpiles,corny-ass scene after corny-ass scene,stupid one liners,way too much of a human element,terrible script,terrible plot,of course terrible directing, and over the top badly filmed action sequences. those who liked the first will be happy and those who despised it like myself are shit out of luck and have to accept it.

    It's a template people. It's not like he wrote it word for word. He's a grown man who's directed a ton of movies, he's not an idiot.

    Plus, he already said he does this for all his movies.

    I guess I'll just let my logic takeover and wait to actually SEE the film before making an opinion. (mind you, this is a film that hasn't even begun FILMING YET)

    QFT!!! It's impossible to tell how good the movie will be right now. I don't think Bay doing this will cause it to suck in any way or form, as he has done this for past movies. Plus, we've got more than a year to wait for this movie to come out (that is assuming it stays on schedule). Hopefully we won't have as many debates about things in this sequel as we did with the first movie. I'd rather have the fandome stay friendly instead of rip each other apart simply for having a different opinion about something that isn't important to everyday life.
