Bay: All Info is Fake

Director Michael Bay is up to his old tricks again, this time posting a message on his Shoot for the Edit Forums that all the information about the script, character locations, etc is all fake. He claims that less than 10 people have read the full script, and apart from te fact that Sam goes to college, know body knows the plot for the sequel. Here is what he said:

The only full script for the movie exist with me and the original writer’s. A select few crew members have read parts, some of the leads have read full scripts – but the number is under ten. One person from Paramount, three from Dreamworks.

We have leaked several scripts, some treatments and various scenes that are used to mislead the internet. We have mocked up wrong schedules and call sheets with fake scenes on them. When shooting scenes we don’t refer to character names and use wrong faces on the poles representing different robots that are going to be placed in – It’s a lot of work but seems to have worked out because no one knows the story of the movie besides Sam going to college.


Chris Mowry mentioned in an interview that he had seen a complete script, and given that Simon Furman has probably as well, since he is writting the adaptation, probably more than 10 people have seen it.

With filming continuing, expect more fun and games from Mr Bay.

Steve Tom & Katie Lowes cast in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Actor Steve Tom has been cast in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen according to his official website. There isn’t any details on the character he will be playing, just that he is a principal cast member. Rumours around the web seem to indicate that he is a CEO of a company.

Also cast is Katie Lowes as Shia LaBeouf’s college resident assistant.

Official Transformers Movie Website Updated for Transformers 2

Seems the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hype machine is about to start slowly building up. Paramount have updated their official website to now show the new logo for the sequel. It’s basically the same as the first film, but with the Revenge of the Fallen subtitle underneath.

The only worrying thing is that the previously announced date of 26th June 2009 has been replaced by Summer 2009.

Bay Talks from Undisclosed Location about Transformers 2

Inbetween filming on the set of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen at an “undisclosed location”, director Michael Bay answered some questions from Entertainment Weekly. He doesn’t reveal much, except that he is still releasing fake pieces of information all the time.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What can you tell us about Transformers 2? Or, better yet, what will you tell us?
MICHAEL BAY: When we were writing the script, I said to the writers, “I hate sequels that try to make it to the third movie. Pretend like we’re never having a third movie, so let’s go for broke on the second one. I hate those cliffhangers! Let’s just make this movie stand on its own.” I really feel this movie is not a forced sequel. I think the script is really good, and I think it’s got a lot of new stuff in it. There are a lot of rumors out there, but we’ve released a lot of fake stuff. We’ve done a really good job of keeping things secret.

Can you give us a hint of something that is true then?
[Laughs] No.

C’mon, anything?
There are some great, new robots that are really inventive.

You recently wrapped production on your update of Friday the 13th, and horror buffs out there are dying to know: what’s it going to be about?
It’s a reconception of the original. We’re introducing a whole group of new kids. What we always try to do is add a little bit of freshness to these movies that were really scary back then and update them for a new audience.

Another video has appeared on YouTube, this time of Shia Labeouf and what looks like Megan Fox at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. Both are preparing for the next scene, but more importantly, a SR-71 Blackbird is in the background, who is likely to be Jetfire!

Transformers 2 Filming at Brooklyn Bridge Happened After All?

Written by Big Bot on June 26, 2008 | News,Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen | Tags: ,

Filming In Brooklyn may have provided some news on what may have happened to the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen filming at the Brooklyn Bridge that nobody seemed to report on due to nothing actually happening. However, it seems that filming did actually happen, just very secretly.

Last week, rumors were flying far and wide about a weekend shoot on the Brooklyn Bridge for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which had been filming in Philadelphia before moving on to Princeton, NJ this week. Filming In Brooklyn had stopped by the bridge over the weekend to check things out, but found no signs of filming, and figured that maybe the rumor had been completely false.

However, Filming In Brooklyn has just learned that T2 had a permit to shoot from a helicopter for a couple of hours in the middle of the night. They were supposed to be shooting a car driving over the Brooklyn Bridge. And while we still don’t have confirmation of the shoot taking place, it’s completely possible that it happened without anyone really noticing.

Thanks to Amy for the news.

Rainn Wilson On Set Pictures

Photos taken today have shown actor Rainn Wilson, who plays the professor in Sam’s Astronomy class, on the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen set. Transformers Lice Action Blog have also received a report of the scene, confirming Shia’s involvement.

Dark Horizons have also had an interview with Wilson, briefly taking about his role and working with Michael Bay.

Question: You haven’t signed up for anything else for your next hiatus, have you?

Wilson: No. I mean, this hiatus, there really was nothing shooting, because there’s this potential SAG strike happening. So there are not really any movies happening right now. But I have The Rocker to promote and I’m doing a couple days on The Transformers II.

Question: Oh, really? As whom?

Wilson: As a robot. No. As a professor. But maybe he’s a robot. Maybe I’ll just pretend he’s a robot, or I’ll play him as a robot.

Question: Have you ever worked with Michael Bay before?

Wilson: I have not worked with Michael Bay before. And I think that is a hilarious, hysterical match-up. Is Rainn Wilson and Michael Bay. It’s like – I was at the MTV Awards last night, and Paris Hilton and their boyfriend wanted their pictures taken with me. And I – as the camera clicked, I said, “This one is for the ages.” I love the idea of Rainn Wilson and Paris Hilton, together at last.

Bay Responds to Mystery Transformer

After the video and photo of a little mechanical robot on set yesterday, speculation has spread on who or what it is. Luckily, director Michael Bay has posted a response on his forums confirming that it is a Transformer, but leaving us guessing who.

What that picture is – that is not a complete Transformer. We use detailed puppets for effects for sizing and color – the real effects are later completed but the robots are much more complicated.

I will post soon to tell you all about the shoot.


Duhamel Talks Transformers 2

Empire Magazine bumped into Josh Duhamel on the set of When In Rome and managed to get 2 sentences from him on the story of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

“I guess who he’s working with is probably the biggest change,” said Duhamel, before adding once more, presumably for emphasis. “Who he’s working with.”

Now this, as Empire propose, add fuel to the rumours that The Fallen will feature in the sequel, and that the Autobots and Decepticons will have to band together against this common foe. Sounds a bit like Galvatron at the end of Transformers The Movie.
