Transformers Movie News MTV have an interview with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman regarding the Transformers Movie.

Are there two men who fanboys envy more than Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman? Not only is this prolific writing duo behind the latest installments of the "Zorro" and "Mission: Impossible" franchises, but now they are knee-deep in reinventing "Star Trek" and everyone's favorite robots in disguise, the Transformers.

The duo took a break from their pre-production work on "Star Trek" and last-minute tweaking of "Transformers" dialogue (the movie marks their second collaboration with director Michael Bay) to dish with MTV News those projects and more.

MTV: Transformers fans have been all over you from almost the moment you signed on to write. Are you still feeling the heat?

Roberto Orci: When some of the early designs were leaked, some of the die-hard fans felt the integrity of the Transformers had been betrayed. Then when they saw some of the footage, they started to say, "I understand now. They're doing the movie version. It totally retains the integrity of what we love, but it's a whole other level."

Alex Kurtzman: We gave [the designs] a lot of thought. It was really a team effort to figure out how to keep it real but also to take Transformers to a new level.

MTV: Does any of the criticism bother you?

Orci: A lot of the die-hard fans say, "Why does it have to have humans at all?" You can't be a robot in disguise if there's nobody to hide from! A human's point of view is implicit in the way they are sold.

MTV: How did you sell Michael Bay on your concept?

Kurtzman: When we sat down with Michael, he said, "Why should I do this movie?" Then we showed him some animatics of Transformers transforming, and his eyes lit up like a 12-year-old. Suddenly, he was imagining a 95-mile-an-hour car chase while the cars were actually transforming. That sense of fun and wonder was an important part of our script development. At every turn, Michael was a great compass for us. He was very much our partner. He's really always wanted to do a kids movie and had never found the vehicle. This was clearly the one.

Orci: We pitched him a boy and his car. "E.T." with action.

MTV: How did your first draft of the script differ from the final product?

Orci: Our first draft centered almost exclusively on the kids. That draft represented the emotional heart of the movie. Much of its structure stayed, but when it came time to do the second draft, we realized we needed to bolster it with the disaster-movie paradigm, following a couple other stories and showing that the Transformers arriving is a global phenomenon. The second draft was much more about the action.

MTV: Considering the large canon of Transformers material out there, was this an especially daunting script to approach?

Kurtzman: Part of what made it a daunting task was that there weren't really any human characters that made a mark [in the cartoon]. We ended up going back to the comic books for initial inspiration for that.

Orci: The basic paradigm is the same. Good Autobots, bad Decepticons, the planet got screwed up. They've been fighting forever. They're looking for energy and they come here. Then it's about "What are the details from the canon that serve that story the best?"

MTV: Speaking of a screwed-up planet, will we see Cybertron in the film?

Orci: Yes.

MTV: How much?

Orci: We're pushing for as much as possible.

MTV: Do you worry about the robots feeling lifeless on the screen?

Orci: They talk, so they do become characters in their own right. They're not just dinosaurs fighting, with humans in the background watching. They're interacting with the humans and become partners with the humans.

MTV: There's been a lot of talk about Bumblebee in the film. Will Bumblebee only communicate through songs played on his radio?

Orci: [They pause.] The editing room will decide.

MTV: The scene we've seen shows just that: Bumblebee only communicating through songs.

Kurtzman: The inspiration for that was the first time Elliott and E.T. have a conversation. E.T. doesn't say a word, and the scene is so emotional. The communication between them is so crystal clear. We felt that in order to really feel the wonder of the experience Sam (Shia LaBeouf) is going through, we wanted to find a way for them to communicate that wasn't direct.

MTV: Was there a character that was most fun for you to write?

Orci: Prime. I love Prime. For me, it's all about Optimus Prime. As a kid, you wanted Prime's attention or you wanted to be him. He was the star of the Autobots.

MTV: Did you lobby for voice actor Peter Cullen to do the voice in the film?

Orci: We definitely lobbied for Peter, and we got him. So we hope it works. [He laughs.]

MTV: How much sleep do you lose thinking about making a film that serves die-hard fans and non-fans alike?

Orci: We definitely worry about it. The last thing we want to do is to be accused of raping anyone's childhood.

MTV: Michael Bay told us that the movie is huge when it comes to action, particularly in the third act.

Orci: So much of the movie is like a war movie. It's like "Saving Private Ryan" with Transformers. Some of it is very intense. And the third act is mind-blowing.

Kurtzman: It's just sick, man. It's just unbelievable. [He laughs.] When we took this job, the first question people would always ask is, "Is this a cartoon?" It was because nobody could even picture it. If we were able to pull it off it would be something that no one had ever seen before.

MTV: Can you put the third act in some perspective for us?

Kurtzman: It's three times bigger than the third act of "King Kong."

MTV: Were there any Transformers you couldn't fit into the story?

Kurtzman: Soundwave was a tough one. And Ravage was in an early draft.

Orci: We knew the Autobots and Decepticons had to serve the story. We're not going to have a tape deck because we have to have a tape deck. Let's have a Decepticon that turns into something that serves the story.

Kurtzman: As fans, we read that [first draft] and said, "This isn't the best use of Soundwave, so let's save him for when we can actually do Soundwave right."

MTV: It sounds like you're already thinking about a sequel.

Orci: We have ideas, but we're trying to be diligent about not thinking ahead. We have a few notions.

MTV: Would any of the later incarnations of Transformers from "Armada" or "Beast Wars" be involved in future stories?

Kurtzman: Sure. Everything is up for grabs. But you have to be careful to not mix too many of the iterations. We couldn't crossbreed too much.

MTV: What's the one moment you're dying for an audience to see in this flick?

Orci: When Sam meets the Autobots. It all builds to that moment. If you buy that moment, you buy the movie.

Transformers Movie News "That's part of the bulk-up; they talk about the sequels," said LaBeouf of his role in Transformers. "I'm signed up if they do them, yeah." That's the most important quote from Shia Labeof's interview with IGN.

Transformers Movie News Don Murphy has posted his latest comments regarding the Transformers Movie.

  • The cut screened for the studio last week. I am up in the rain so I missed it. The studio is excited. This blockbuster continues to show just HOW big it will be. You will believe a robot from space can kick ass. Here are the answers to all the questions I get on this one-
  • No decision from Michael about Welker yet. Honestly I don't know how that is going to turn out. I know that I am on the record as wanting Frank. I know that the fans have made it clear that it must be Frank. I don't think it would be ludicrous to have him. But it is Michael's call.
  • No I won't be with Skorponok at the Vegas ShowWest. It will be fun to hear about what a great idea he thought Transfomers was since he wasn't involved with it from the beginning. I don't know if anyone noticed a previous interview I did, but let's repeat it- EVERY studio passed on this movie. EVERY STUDIO. Only after that happened did all of a sudden interest reappear. The only people who KNEW this was going to be huge were Tom Desanto and that guy with the goofy picture above. Believe it as you hear about history being rewritten. Or ask Skorpy about it yourself. In the meantime Shia will be there too. He is a GREAT GREAT guy. Hi Five him for me if you are there.
  • Yes there will be another trailer with more details. Probably at the start of the summer season. But you can watch the one we have a few more times if you want to. It is still on line.
Thanks to Seibertron for the inital report

Transformers Movie News You may have noticed that we did not report on the recent news story of the Transformers film being downgraded from a rating R to a PG-13, this is because we were waiting for confirmation as the film is still unfinished, it doesn't even have all the VA work yet, so we found it a bit strange that the MPAA would have rated it already. Now, thanks to Nelson, the admin over at Michael Bay's site and forum, its been confirmed that Transformers Movie is still unrated, and has yet to be submitted to the MPAA. It seems that IESB have mixed up Transformers with another one of Steven's films, Destrubia. To quote Nelson "Destrubia got an R rating, and Steven got it lowered. Bay & Spileberg have not applied for their rating yet."

You can view the original report here.

Those sites which originally reported the inaccurate information will probably update their stories once they read this.


Update: Since his original post in that thread there have been a few replied, one asked if Shia was "misinformed", as he was the person being quoted by IESB, Nelsons replied was simply that he was probably confusing the two films (Transformers and Desturbia)
