The latest word on the inevitable Transformers sequel (and yes, I’m dying to see a sequel to this one, because I just love giant f*cking robots kicking the living tar out of each other, so sue me) is that it’s being scheduled for Summer 2009. The word comes from Paramount Pictures themselves. Or at least that’s what ComingSoon, citing Box Office Mojo, says. And why not? Two years is just about enough time to make the sequel. Get the script done, start production mid-2008, and by 2009 you’ve got a brand spanking robot sequel that will make $100s of millions at the box office.
Here’s Coming Soon with the word:
Despite a recent comment from Transformers director Michael Bay that the studio hasn’t been going full speed ahead on a sequel because of the possible strike next year, Paramount Pictures has now set a June 26, 2009 release date for Transformers 2. It is unclear who all will return for the sequel, as far as crew and cast members. Hopefully we’ll know more soon.
Heck, I’m still hoping for a live-action movie version of the 1986 Transformers movie.
