Let me say for starters that I am a huge fan of the first three Transformers films. I thought that they were brilliant popcorn movies worth your buck but after the third film, I don't see how they could do anymore films without resorting to reviving Megatron again and making Unicron the villain in the style of these films. So I thought it would be a great idea to reboot the franchise as Michael Bay and Shia LaBeouf have hinted at many times before. Even though the chances of Transformers 4 & 5 are higher than the chances of getting a reboot, I still felt an obligation to throw my ideas out here regardless of wether or not we get a continuation. First off, I'd like to get my choices for a director and cast out of the way before moving onto story. The Director: I have two choices for the directorial position of this hypothetical reboot: Zack Snyder and Justin Lin. Both know how to handle character and story without sacrificing either in favor of other bullshit. Lin learned that lesson after how poorly "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" and "Fast and Furious" did with critics. And considering he dropped out of Terminator 4 & 5 with only the sixth and seventh Fast and Furious films to do, he'd probably have time for a TF reboot. The Cast: Now I'm going to start by saying that both the Transformers and humans will have equal screentime, not one or the other. I don't want to make this a "kiddie" movie by throwing in a human trio or whatever, I would just want to work with whatever I find good. The human cast would be a mix of G1 humans, "Bayformers" humans, and Animated humans. I think a good fit for Sam/Spike could be David Henrie from Wizards from Waverly Place mainly because I have yet to see him get a role in something other than Disney stuff and I think he has some real potential for an action role. Carly was kind of a hard one since I don't know that many blond actresses who can do a good job at this kind of thing without returning to the Spider-Man reboot shortlist for Gwen Stacy since Carly in the original cartoon was very much like Gwen in many ways with them both being intelligent blonds. I personally think that Logan Lerman would be a good choice for Chip Chase in my opinion and I would make the character friends with Leo Spitz from ROTF who I would bring beck in this film as being a friend with Sam. I'd personally like to see Hugh Jackman from the X-Men films as Sam's father since he's good at those kind of roles. Aside from those three, I don't have anyone else in mind so if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. I don't have a solid robot cast aside from Peter Cullen and Frank Welker as Optimus and Megatron so I'm kinda stuck on that one too. The Story: Sam would be back in high school but the "using car to get girl" wouldn't be touched upon that often since you would basically have Mikaela leaving her boyfriend, Trent DeMarco, in a slightly different way than in the first movie where she leaves him just because he won't let her drive. She'd leave Trent because he basically beats up Sam which proves to her that he is too immature to be in a real relationship so she leaves him. It's not until the end of the film where Sam and Bumblebee save her from Starscream and the Seekers when she realizes that Sam is the kind of person she wants to be with. Carly would be Sam's friend in the beginning but wouldn't become Sam's new love interest until the end of the second film after Mikaela dies. Sam and Bumblebee meet by coincidence this time rather than because of the Autobots needing his grandfather's glasses. Patrick Dempsey's character from DOTM, Dylan, is brought in as one of Sam's peers and a spoiled rich kid so it gives Sam another human enemy to deal with in the first film. Megatron stages a worldwide attack on planet Earth and begins decimating cities one by one. Shockwave is shown as having his own vendetta throughout the film and works with Starscream, so he can in turn betray him and Megatron at the same time. Shockwave also has been working on a secret project codenamed "Devastator" where he plans on taking a group of Transformers and merging them together to form a colossal giant. That's all I have for now until I come up with some new ideas though.
