    This is to be taking with a grain of salt...huge salt at that. But i was on my old screen name for AIM today for just the hell of it and found this Moviefone AIM bot and i typed in Transformers and got two listings for it:

    Me: transformers
    Moviefone: - Movies for Today
    1 -F- Transformers 2
    2 -P- Transformers (2007)

    P=Past, N=New, S=Soon, F=Future

    Type # next to movie to see showtimes, M to go back to the Main Menu or anything else to search again.
    Me: 1
    Moviefone: Transformers 2 has not opened yet. It will open on 12-31-10

    12 - 31- 10 eh? That it highly unlikely that that is a date seeing as they dont even have a script or anything yet but I though I would still share it with people here.

    p.s. - i apologize if this has been previously reported.

    Sounds cool to me. It's probably wrong as they've only just begun working on the script.

    might not be far from the truth as bay himself said that once the script is done he would drop evrything to start the filming.spielberg said hes been a pest about two since 1 opened.

    i was reading that it would be easier to make this one since all of the main cast is staying on, and many of the main robot characters are already designed. they gave the green light for TF2 last month i think, but that doesnt mean they hadnt already started a script. i expect we'll be seeing it by the end of 2009 or early 2010.

    I doubt they could have hammered out a date already, but it's possible that for movie so far out, Moviefone gives a throwaway date. The last day of the year, 3 years from now, seems like a safe, far away throwaway date.

    It's kinda like when video game shops start taking pre-orders and such when the publisher never released a date. A lot of the time companies will just make up an entry with whatever information they may have, and then fill in the rest just so they have some sort of entry for it.

    31 December? Sounds like a 'placeholder' date to me, just to fill in the space on their database until they get something firmer. I would imagine summer 2009 or 2010 for TF2. 2009 would be nice though, it would be part of the 25th Anniversary of Transformers. :D

    There's no way they already have a release date for the sequel. They don't even have a script yet.

    Just as long as it doesn't open in the same month as Harry Potter 7, or any other big sequels... I would like to see Transformers 2 hold the #1 spot for more than a week.

    Yeah probably a placeholder, but my guess is they'll be gunning for a summer 09 or at the latest 10 release.
