Let the countdown begin: On Wednesday (July 13), DreamWorks Pictures, Paramount Pictures and Hasbro, Inc. announced that a live-action feature film version of "Transformers" will hit movie theaters on July 4, 2007.
Y'know, someone with restraint and good taste would refrain from making statements like: I sure hope the North Koreans nuke LA between before this is finished.
Fortunately I have no such compunctions.
And July 4th? Yeah, f*ck you too Hollywood.
Michael Bay ("The Island," "The Rock") will direct what promises to be a wildly expensive production based on a script from his "Island" scribes Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. The impressive production team will be led by executive producer Steven Spielberg, with Lorenzo di Bonaventura (upcoming "Four Brothers"), Tom DeSanto ("X-Men" and "X2: X-Men United") and Don Murphy ("The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen") serving as co-executive producers.
So much talent concentrated for this one film? This will surely be the best thing Hollywood has ever produced.
**Please note I dripped so much sarcasm typing that, I've shorted out my computer, and am now on my back-up PC**
God, lets see: Michael "Pearl Harbor sucked, and I miss you." Bay, the two chuckle-heads who "wrote" the script for "The Island" (Go see www.agonybooth.com/parts/island.asp for details), and Steven (haven't made a good film since.................... Temple of Doom?) Spielberg. Yeah, this is going to bomb like a B-52.
Seriously, "X-Men", "X-Men 2" and "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen"? Were those films even remotely faithful to the source material?
Fans around the world have wanted a Transformers live-action movie for a long time and we are thrilled to work with DreamWorks and Paramount to bring this legendary saga to life on the big screen," says Brian Goldner, president of Hasbro's U.S. Toy segment. "With some of the entertainment industry's best talent on board for this film, fans will experience Transformers in a way that is incredibly powerful."
Noooooooooo, fans around the world know if Hollywood makes a live action Transformers it'll suck like a black hole.
This is a cynical money-grab, pure and simple.
And I'll bet real money Megs will not be a Walther P38.
