    I don't believe Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are enough. Sure they watched the cartoon when they were little but they didn't turn into complete die-hard fans. Personally I think we should bring writers on this project like those who wrote some of the other series and comics too. We need people like Simon Furman, Ben Yee, even Vangelus would do just fine.

    Aren't there two users here who started writing a script? does anyone have a link to it I'd love to read it :D

    It would be terrible. Die-hard fans should never be given creative control of a franchise, that's how you wind up with Drift.

    We know the franchise back and fourth, do not doubt your fellow geeks my friends. We could pull it off.

    I don't see it happening. Too much conflict would happen within the group of die hard fans that they got to write the script.

    Knowing the source material isn't always synonymous with having good writing skills.

    You're kidding me. You're effing kidding me.

    The fandom, the same fandom that can't agree on anything, from toys to comics to cartoons to movies to absolutely anything, in charge of the script of a blockbuster movie?

    NO.

    (With that said, I think a smidgen more writer/fan interaction would be nice.)

    We spend more time blasting the franchise than we do enjoying it.

    No, you feel you need a fan to write any future sequel. I can do without 2+ hours of unwatchable fanwankery, thanks.

    Fans can not agree on anything.

    Fans do not have realistic expectations

    Fans do not respect the restraints of budget, time, and special effects

    I can't decide whether I'd rather see a film written by fans or one written by Furman less. I'm presuming the fan version would consist of two hours of the Transformers crushing humans underfoot with gushing fountains of blood, whilst the Furman version would consist of Prime being emo for 110 minutes, then dying and resurrecting to save the day.

    I was just trying to give a short, sharp lesson in Furmanisms. You of all people, Omnius, should know that list never ends. Like some predatory bird, Furman hovers over us, prepared to give us the worst case of mental indigestion we've ever had with his writing. Anyway, time I wasn't here. Never did want to live for ever anyway.

    So it's over - finished?

    I suppose you can do no less.

    Anyhoo, gotta dash myself, those whirlwinds won't reap themselves.

    You won't believe the things I can do now.

    Well, I can theoretically do them. Not in public, I got arrested last time.

    Ok, why am I being singled out again? If we get the writers of lets say, Beatwars, G1, maybe the others who worked on Animated. It could work. Something like this has never been done before (Not that I know of) so why have a negative attitude towards it? You need to approach these things with an open mind.

    If you want evidence of why a fan script wouldn't work, search for threads started by 'Conceptron'... the ones that aren't rants about Megan Fox, that is.
