    Okay I have a treatment:

    Megatron is a grassroots hero, having been a miner, a gladiator, a philosopher, and finally a candidate to bear the matrix and become a Prime. ...and leader of growing party that wishes to change the current slow government and force change.

    After a rally Megatron pulls Pax from working the docks, impressed with his promptness, knowledge and shared philosphies.

    Megatron uses his connections to have Pax elevated to become the next archivist of Cybertronian Culture and Treasures where he meets political types including one of the senators who has access to the Matrix.

    Pax is indebted and looks up to Megatron, happy to be part of a coming change. Megatron asks Prime for a small favor, a sample of Dark energon for the purposes of experimentation. It is a rare controlled substance on Cybertron...

    Sentinel Prime suddenly dies in an apparent assassination



    Please let me know if that sounds interesting...

    For an Optimus solo movie, I would like a road trip movie. Just him and at most one unimportant sidekick, driving from extreme to extreme of the Route 66, being chased by a small Decepticon team led by some cool character that hasn't appeared in the movies yet (Motormaster, as other posts suggested, sounds great).
    The sidekick would be someone who has heard a lot of Optimus, but only now will see what separates the legend from the person. The movie will be full of flashbacks for contrast with the present or with what the sidekick has heard of Optimus.

    For an animated movie set in Cybertron: give us whatever you think is too big for live action: Creation stories, planetary destruction, Primus, Unicron, the Thirteen, plot points that require centuries to resolve, the cybertronian war extending to the galaxy, other aliens, Shockwave turning into a gun.

    Why is Bonaventura still stuck with this franchise? Does he hold the filming rights? As someone mentioned he seems to be an ignorant lout when it comes to these films characters.

    Optimus Prime is stoic and has few words to say....dafuq? Ever heard of Orion Pax, ever heard of Elita 1 ? You can write plenty from that alone.....

    Lorenzo and his production company is tied to Paramount by contract. The contract is renewed every 3 years. Him and his company is basically working for the development of movies based on Hasbro properties. He's renewed for the next three years. So, he's not going away anytime soon.

    Thread cleaned. It's easy to post opinions without flaming, so chill out. No need to insult each other over difference of opinion.

    I think an Optimus Prime movie isn't as hard to make as Di Bonaventura thinks. It was even more of a stretch to me for some human to be "The Last Knight" when a heroic Autobot leader already looked the part in the movie prior, yet, look what happened.

    Still think Di Bonaventura should let the creative team working on the movies do the interviews. He should also be open to incorporating what works.

    If I were in his shoes I would let Knight and Laika do whatever the hell they want and just bankroll that operation. The Bay fans had 5 movies in a 10 year span, who back on 2006 even thought we would get 2, let alone 5 movies in that span? The Bayverse had a run that was longer than most anticipated.

    I'm open to what Travis brings to the table, the difference is Knight and Bay.

    Thank you!!! I'm pretty sure Knight, left to his own devices, unhindered by broken continuities, could create something incredible that would satisfy everyone. The limitations he had to work with Bee were unfair yet he still managed to create a miracle out of that fence-sitting debacle. Seriously, let him do his thing!!!

    Unless it gets renewed because Goldner is still in charge and he basically gives lip service to the films regardless of their performance.
