Transformers live action movie!
Transformers live action movie?! Sounds good to me, hope they will use the same voices as the original series and movie. This movie could be awesome...
THE TRANSFORMERS have been many things: a toy line, cartoon series, comics, even a theatrical movie. But now Hasbro's robots in disguise are preparing for their greatest role yet...as a live-action movie.
Don Murphy (THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN) and Tom DeSanto (X-MEN) are the two gentlemen who have the plan and will be the film's producers. DeSanto is also in the midst of creating a story treatment for the movie, which will serve as the template for the screenplay.
It's not the first time a live-action TRANSFORMERS movie has been attempted. Three years ago director Joseph Kahn (TORQUE) and producer Chris Lee (S.W.A.T.) attempted to assemble a TRANSFORMERS movie for SuperMegaMedia, a production company, but things never got further than the initial planning stages.
Murphy and DeSanto's TRANSFORMERS idea will be shopped around to studios shortly. It's expected that a screenwriter will be hired shortly after that.
Got a scoop? Know something that you

If you go to <a href="http://www.digiserve.com/eescape/tf/Transformers.shtml">Rob's Transformer Page</a>, you can see (among other things) a script for a live-action Transformer's movie that he was asked to write a few years ago, although it was obviously never made. Still, it is a decent script.

About this supposed movie, I have read in internet that Steven Spielberg was associated to the project, but I don't remember where.
It's a very interesting proposal to do a real action movie about The Transformers, but I think the special effects have to be very, very good.
I will wait the release.
Bye and thx

Dreamworks has this in development. About nine months ago they took out a two-page ad in Variety announcing pre-production work. Last I heard Michael Bay was attached to direct."34 million American adults are obese. Putting together that excess blubber would fill the Grand Canyon two-fifths of the way up. That may not sound impressive, but keep in mind it is a very big canyon."

There was a transformer's live action movie in Japan
There was a transformer's live action movie in Japan years ago. If I recall correctly, in the early 90's.

In a previous post in this thread I said that, in a live-action movie of The Transformers, special effects needs to be very good.
Well. Some days ago I get one movie clip that shows a car-robot transformation, and looks very fine. They took the new VW Beetle and make it looks like an Autobot. I was not aware of those advances in 3D animation, so if some boys can get that quality by themselves, what can we wait from a Hollywood studio?
Almost the same thing happened to me with War of the Worlds, until I see part of the movie on DVD and I get very impressed. I believed that this one would be a bad movie, but only for the special effects it worth the watching.
If you want to see the new Beetle video I'm talking about (and others!), go to the Michael Smith's website .
thx and bye

British TV ad
Hi all, I don't know if you have seen this TV advert in the US but if you follow the link below, it will take you to an advert from a french car company which came out in the UK late 2004. Rumors have it that it was used under licence for the transformers to "test the water" for transformers fans and the quality of the cgi. let us know what you think! if the cgi is going to be as good in the new live action movie I think it should be awesome!

ironside, I have seen this video in the Michael Smith's webpage but I don't know more.
There is other video, which you can see in this website too, about a CitroŽn 2CV. See it, it's funny.
