Rumor - Transformers 3 Script Treatment Leak

Posted on 12-12-2009 at 03:32 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
salt-shaker
Have a pinch of salt ready, Transformers fans - an alleged, leaked script treatment for Transformers 3 has been posted over at The Allspark. While it's easy to simply dismiss this as a hoax, remember that the last Transformers movie script treatment leak ended up being rather close to what was shown in theaters for Revenge of the Fallen.

So, total hoax or is there a grain of truth in among the salt? Check out the treatment for yourself by clicking on the link above and discuss your thoughts on our 2005 Boards by clicking the discuss button.

ugh not this again

Could, potentially, be real, but for the most part, it's probably not. Even if it is real, it's not the final version, so it could be completely different when the finished version get's approved.

Calling Sam "Spike" just seems too odd for this to be remotely real.

Edit: Reading threw it, it seems too fan-wank-ish to me. The thing with Lazerbeak seemed to similar to G1 to me, and something about the "Now all we need is a little Energon, and a lot of luck" seemed odd to me.

Anyone read it yet? They could have put up a resume of what exactly happens, i don't have time right now to read through 120 pages just to find out if this might be any good.

EDIT: Has anyone seen official screenplays/scripts with spelling mistakes in them?
FartRipper67
I read about 3/4 of the script, and it makes my inner G1 nazi scream in joyous outburst.

But, the overall story is WAY too different from the previous movies to even fit in with them... even though there were plot connections.

It kind of feels like "Oh, we changed our minds on the whole movie universe, let's change to a G1 theme even though we already established a solid theme in the previous movies."

I'm on page nine, and so far I really hope its fake. Or at least the dialogue is given a total makeover. I mean at least 90%
Radioactive Ravage
...no.

I do not need g1 again.

NO. This is too fanwanky for me and I really... well, I hate it. It's just... ridiculous.

Could be fake, but a lot of it makes sense as well. As always, time will tell.
Wheeljack_Prime
Mirage seems to have Sunstreaker's personality.

And Brawl is back somehow...

No Jolt, Sideswipe, or Twins at all, yet the Harvester is mentioned

Too much of a clash in tone between this and the other two films.

Yup. Gotta be fake.

The only thing left to make this seem fake would be the way the story seems to differ both in style and the intro lacks that typical action intro both first films had. The first scene here seems to be very low key compared to the other two.
Vince
Wow...that wasnt particularily fantastic.....must we always go back to the '86 movie for everything!? Most likely fake.
Radioactive Ravage
Yeah, uh... this has all the Autobots and Decepticons reformatting into new modes- which means new designs for the development to make...

NOT HAPPENING. Fun fake, but no.
TJOmega
I always get a laugh out of these. It's not possible to have a full script already, much less one that would get leaked, unless it was an intentional bogus one like Bay suggested for the last movie. And there were at least two I remember from that one, my favorite being Magnus, Hot Rod, and Prime battling two factions of Decepticons in Las Vegas.
EmineX
Totally fake. The screenplay is comprised entirely of fan-wank.
Radioactive Ravage
And I just got to the end.

FAIL.
Waveride
Where the hell is Jolt and Sideswipe?
Wheeljack_Prime
Wow. Even Megatron reformats? Whoever wrote this has got to be an idiot if he thinks he's fooling anybody.
Waveride
Terrible, terrible, terrible script! Nothing like the first two and those two i mentioned above are nowhere to be seen, strange considering they both survived the second movie. Definitely fake and i REALLY hope it's not something Bay & Co. leaked as they should focus on the damn script instead of wasting time making up fakes to fool the fans.
grayman
Very nice read for G1 fan in me, but this is completely fake. It would only appeal to adults that were kids in the eighties that are still fans of Transformers, like me. The general population would hang Paramount for this. Michael Bay would refuse to direct this. It would seem like a step down from the previous two movies for both him and the average movie goer. Nice read, though.
grimlock1972
I call fake and it could be subterfuge.
although all the G1 touches are what id hoped to see in the first live action movie , it has some interesting ideas and i hope some close to good parts make it into the movie and the rest can be trashed
Wheeljack_Prime
Okay, so now frenzy and ravage are back - did this person even see ROTF?
fisch
I particularly love pgs 43-44 where the Allspark miraculously reginerates itself into a behemoth cube again and somehow finds its way back to the Hoover Dam. We then completely reinact the Hoover Dam scene with Starscream's attack and also have screamer taking over Bumblebee's part of transforming the cube and then releasing Megatron from his icy prison. Oddly enough, Starscream jabbed a sharp piece of metal into Megs chest just a few pages prior while on the Nemesis.

Obvious BS, but it started out good.

I think you missed the part about time travel having occurred
Ephland
It was all well and good until they time traveled back to 1982 and scanned '82 vehicle modes.

Edit: where did Sam get the phone? and how can he just "call" Optimus?

Edit 2: how could Bumblebee play a clip of KITT if the show hasn't aired yet? (this is why I hate time travel as a plot device)

Total fanwank fakery...but a pretty fun read, nonetheless. Cliffhanger ending is dodgy, though. It's more internally consistent than anything we will get, and the Knight Rider/Frankie Goes to Hollywood-type gags are a damn sight better than dogs humping and robo-balls. Props to whoever it is for cranking out a full 120-page screenplay that was good enough for me to burn all the way through in one sitting. If I'd tried to read the actual RotF script beforehand, I don't think I'd have gotten past the college arrival scene, tops.

Wiki says KR debuted September 1982. Script puts them in October '82.
ssjkazer
page 15 thundercraker and skywarp............ if you dont know thundercracker is dead
Aptom
load of bull.
Doug
I don't have time to read all that.
Tiller
lol "Sight" is spelled "site."

Cookies for trying, though.
The_Black_Sheep
I can't believe I read the entire 126 pages... Anyway, It felt like I was watching the first few episodes of G1. What about all the G1-isms? The Ark, Teletran 1, Energon, all the G1 alt-modes, Aerialbots, Combaticons, Every one of Soundwave's Cassettes/Minicons, UM, Shocky etc. This has zero chance of being real...
enkidoamark
When it said Sam looked wise beyond his years, I knew it was fake.
enkidoamark
Assuming this is fake, I think the real discussion here is what this tells us about what TF3 should be like. I know Bay and Co. aren't sitting around waiting for our opinions, but I'd like to think that they want to make the next movie more cohesive than the last one and that, though they certainly won't sacrifice box office or explosion time to give us what we want, they are listening for ideas that will make us happy without them having to sacrifice anything. Am I being incredibly naive?
Triggerhappy
I'd love to see them go back in time and get G1 modes.... that would be so amazingly silly, but no way would they do that it would be too expensive on all kinds of levels
Mxprime
This script is too good to be true really, I personally liked reading (helps I was listening to some immediate music) but yeah there were too many things that would really go in fan's favour and that's not usuallly the case with major films. Though since Hasbro have some new interaction with the third film, you never know, we may not get this but something with this whole G1 esque flavour.

Shame though I did like the time travel, reminded me of beast wars.
Lucario Prime
Yeah..

My ass.
Soulmaster
no Skids... no Mudflap... TOTAL FAKE FAIL
nice story btw, it would make a nice "animated" transformers movie, you know...
if this is in some way real... well, where is sideswipe, chromia (assuming she survived), Skids, Mudflap...
nemisispringer
its not written very well at all so i couldnt see it being written by professionals that and the decepticons talk way too much that would never happen in a bay movie
Rider Strike
Yeah... it's more than likely a fake...

The only thing that really made think that it may be real was the reformating scene, because if this wasn't in TF3, we'd be seeing alot of repaints and remolds for that toyline.

I'm more than up for seeing Mirage, Hound, and Wheeljack though
Optimus Prime
I call fake based on the misspelling of "wreak" and "sight" on the first page.
No Hollywood writer is that amateur.
Didn't even bother reading it from there.
Shadow25
Not even halfway through, but this is incredibly boring. It's fake.

mostly This

G1 wankery or not I liked it far better then Bayformers 1 & 2.
I call fake because it just seems to good to be true.
Dirge121
Reading through, that was just awful.
Like it took the worst parts of G1 and crammed them together with the worst parts of the Movieverse, then shoved as much stupid fanwank in as possible to completely alienate the average viewer.
Eric
This is actually good.

Too bad it's fake.
Takeout
