T'formers pushed back

07.14.2005

Transformers pic DreamWorks announced recently that they'll be pushing back the release of a live action TRANSFORMERS to July 4th, 2007. The reason cited for the date change came from DreamWorks head of distribution Jim Tharp:

Under the direction of Michael Bay, and with Steven Spielberg executive producing, we know that 'Transformers' is going to be the kind of explosive action movie that is perfect for the height of the summer movie season. By staking our claim on the 4th of July, 2007, we ensure that we not only have the time to make this movie the way it should be made, but also to build excitement and awareness leading up to its release.

As far as I can remember, Michael Bay has been thisclose to directing TRANSFORMERS but hasn't officially signed on. I guess this means he's officially on directing duties for the "robots in disguise." The film will be scripted by Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman (who wrote Bay's upcoming THE ISLAND), who had previously mentioned that they'd be approaching the movie from the human perspective. On a related note, one of the many treats that Comic Con fans will get this year is seeing the unveiling of the official TRANSFORMERS website, which can be found HERE (though it's not active yet). On a final note, despite the movie now being more than a year away, there's already rumors that George Clooney will be providing the voice of Optimus Prime. With SUPERMAN RETURNS filming and people generally getting tired of speculating on who the next Bond will be, it's nice to have another high profile movie to start rumors about.
