    This is more of an UPDATE than a :repost:. :fawkd:

    July 22, 2004 - IGN FilmForce has learned that the live-action feature film version of The Transformers will indeed be a DreamWorks project, which confirms rumors that appeared online earlier this week. DreamWorks Pictures has inked a deal with toy king Hasbro to make The Transformers; Paramount Pictures will handle the foreign rights. Also confirming earlier Web buzz, DreamWorks honcho Steven Spielberg did indeed use his personal relationship with Hasbro founder Alan Hassenfeld to bring The Transformers over to DreamWorks.


    Even better, Hasbro and DreamWorks have agreed to get Transformers going very quickly, with a 2006 release date already set!

    Furthermore, G.I. Joe producer Lorenzo DiBonaventura may become involved with the project in some capacity on behalf of Paramount. Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto are already onboard to produce Transformers. Expect the trades to confirm this report sometime very soon.

    IGN FilmForce has been able to sneak a peek at a press release which includes quotes from producers DeSanto and Murphy. "Like X-Men, Transformers offers an amazing mythology with all the elements to create a successful ongoing franchise, iconic characters, global themes, and a world that has never been seen before on screen," said DeSanto. "We hope that this will be the first in a franchise that is embraced by fans and newcomers alike."

    "If you go to places which are the pop culture zeitgeist center, places like this week's San Diego Comic-Con, you won't find many that engender as much enthusiasm as Transformers," said Murphy. "I have a message board on my site where most of my projects have several hundred postings from fans – when Transformers recently hit 8000 postings I knew we had something really incredible."

    Needless to say, The Transformers are based on the hugely popular Japanese toy line from the 1980s, which spawned a few comic book series and a hit TV show. Cartoon Network is readying another animated Transformers series.

    I really hope it's not this new armada shit and I really really wish it would be the old school style transformers. I hate how the new transformers are all crappy looking plus the toys suck now.

    Well. The guy who did Starscream is already dead.

    BUT. Peter Cullen (voice of Prime) said that he'd be glad to come back if they asked him.

    its a 3rd person shooter, and yes, you can transform into the vehicles. you can be prime, hotshot, or red alert, and you can unlock unicron i believe. there are shitloads of powerups and stuff to unlock. ive already got one of the old TV spots where Bumblebee talks the kid out of running away from home!

    AND the voice of optimus prime sounds EXACTLY like the old cartoons!

    fucking :cool:
    edit: and theres one of the flying ones you can unlock too, i just havent gotten there yet

    They better do this movie right, other than bringing out crap!

    This is transformers!! I grew up with the toys and the cartoon, I know when I get old I would still want to see the younger kids talking about transformers, even singing the theme song...
