Transformers Go To Russia

Well, it looks like Red Square and the Sears Tower are the next global landmarks facing swift and explosive destruction at the hands of Michael Bay and his enormous robot troops, with the news that Transformers 3 is set to film in Moscow and Chicago. The sequel, which is set for July 2011, starts shooting in May, with Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf returning to play the hapless humans running away from rampaging robots (probably carrying a Macguffin) and Ehren Kruger writing the script (not joined this time by original screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman). Bay has previously promised that this one will not go for more and bigger explosions, instead delving into the Transformers' mythos and becoming "darker". We'd still bet Grandma on there being a fair whack of destruction though, so remember that "fewer explosions" is relative. Source Here

Unseen Transformers 2 Clip

We thought Michael Bay had blown up pretty much everything he could do in Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, but it turns out he had a yen to sink a socking great aircraft carrier and though it didn't make it to the final cut, we've got first look at it here. In this clip from the special edition DVD's behind-the-scenes footage, we see the Decepticons first bombing the ship before its aircraft slip off the side like so many Skittles. There's also the obligatory homages to Titanic, firstly with the robots clinging onto the sides while ships fall off, and then in darker shots with bodies floating around in the sea - a rare Bay nod to the death of innocents. It's split screen, so we can see the rough draft running parallel to the final cut and it's interesting seeing how ideas changed: a group of people in cars watching robots flying through the sky was later moved to Trafalgar Square.

Megan Fox to Get 'Great Part' in 'Transformers 3'

After Megan Fox has been confirmed to reprise her role as Mikaela Banes in "Transformers 3", there was a speculation that her character would be dead in the first few frames of the upcoming movie. In a recent interview with USA Today, however, director Michael Bay did not only dismiss the rumor but also promised a "great part" for the actress. "She's got a great part in 'Transformers 3'," the helmer said on Fox, who considered him as Hitler when he was doing his duty. Asked if he plan to kill her off in the third "Transformers" movie, Bay who is currently working on the script said, "No, no, no. She gets enough of that already." Beside Megan Fox, Shia LaBeouf is also set to return to "Transformers 3" as Sam Witwicky. Meanwhile, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman who have been involved in the writing of the first two "Transformers" movies, will not be returning to the script duties for next installment. Serving as the follow-up to "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen", the forthcoming film will be produced by Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg. Bay has previously revealed that the release date of this adventure movie has been moved up a year from July 1, 2012 to July 1, 2011. Source Here

'Transformers 3' Confirmed for 2011

"Transformers 3" is coming out sooner than the original plan. On his Shoot for the Edit forum, director Michael Bay confirmed that the release date has been moved up a year from July 1, 2012 to July 1, 2011. "Well its official: We have a great Transformers 3 story. The release date is now July 1st 2011. Not 2012," so he began the post dated Thursday, October 1. Providing more info on the project, the 44-year-old filmmaker wrote, "Today is Day One. This morning started with an ILM meeting for five hours in San Francisco." He furthermore noted that he is on a flight to Rhode Island with writer Ehren Kruger to discuss about new characters with Hasbro. Before ending his post over the development for the sequel to " Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen ", the producer of "Friday The 13th" revealed that Megan Fox, the actress who has played Mikaela Banes since the first " Transformers " in 2007, is slated to return. "P.S. Megan Fox, welcome back," so he wrote. As far as the war of words ignited by Fox, Bay has this to say, "I promise no alien robots will harm you in any way during the production of this motion picture. Please consult your Physician when working under my direction because some side effects can occur, such as mild dizziness, intense nausea, suicidal tendencies, depression, minor chest hair growth, random internal hemorrhaging and inability to sleep. As some directors may be hazardous to your health, please consult your Doctor to determine if this is right for you. Pain and Gain is right after shooting of Trans 3." Following the release of "Revenge", Fox was quoted by Wonderland Magazine as she slammed the director for being "nightmare to work for" and talked about the long hours of work for the shooting of the sequel. She even compared him to Hitler. Her remark led to an open letter, which was posted on Bay's site and signed by three crew members of the blockbuster movie, describing her as an "inexperienced girl" who should thank Bay for the biggest opportunity a young actress can get. The letter has since been taken down by Bay himself. With its removal, the director stated, "I don't condone the crew letter to Megan. And I don't condone Megan's outlandish quotes. But her crazy quips are part of her crazy charm. The fact of the matter is I still love working with her, and I know we still get along. I even expect more crazy quotes from her on Transformers 3".

Michael Bay Hints on Soundwave Voice in 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen'

Frank Welker, the actor who voiced Megatron in 1980s animated series of " Transformers ", may be lending his voice to another Decepticon in " Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen ". With Hugo Weaving on-board the project as Megatron's voice, Welker has been hinted to be filling the voice of Soundwave. The possibility was put forth by "Revenge of the Fallen" helmer Michael Bay. Posting a message on his Shoot for the Edit forums on Tuesday, March 10, the 44-year-old filmmaker gave his response to Welker's remark about him yet to be approached for the movie, writing of his plan to offer a role for the actor. "I think I'm going to pursue Frank on Soundwave," Bay wrote. Earlier in an interview with TFW2005, Frank Welker confessed that he has not been approached to do the voice acting for the highly anticipated movie. Asked on any further work with the franchise, either with the movie or another incarnation, he told TFW2005, "Well it is a little too early to be specific but I will say yes and no. No, I have not been approached by the movie folks but yes I am still involved in the franchise...more on that later." Set a year after the end of the hit 2007 "Transformers", "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" follows Sam Witwicky and Mikaela Banes as they become the target of attack by Decepticons because of Sam's knowledge about the origins of the Transformers. Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro are returning to the sequel with Isabel Lucas as well as Rainn Wilson joining the cast. It is slated for June 24 U.S. release.
