Age of Extinction
Orci: Movie May Suffer Due To Strike

By bwbm on Wednesday, December 05, 2007



Roberto Orci, a third of the "Transformers 2" screenwriting trio, has updated the fandom on the status of the film with a posting at producer Don Murphy's message board.

The title of the thread was "An Apology," and Mr. Orci wrote that due to the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike, "the movie may suffer."

Mr. Orci writes that he has talked to some writers in the business and they are ready to hold out "forever." The writers are in dispute regarding DVD royalties and web royalties as the old media's new journey into the web continues to grow.

He also says that the movie "may be pushed back" from the principal photography date of June 2008, "or a host of other thing[s] may happen to it." What other things Mr. Orci is referring to are unknown, but he promised to keep us posted.

The following post is the complete message that Mr. Orci posted on Don Murphy's message board:
    How are you?

    As you know, all screenwriters are engaged in a labor dispute with the major studios and media conglomerates that subsidize much, but not all of the media content that we consume. It may go on for a very long time. All the other writers I've talked to on every level are ready to hold out FOREVER, all the while figuring out ways to make a living out of the internet without studios.

    So now the hard part for me and Alex and Ehren and all fans of Transformers is that the movie may suffer (unless of course you hate the first one so much that you feel our inattention is a bonus). It may be pushed back or a host of other thing may happen to it. For that we apologize truly.

    will keep you posted...

Clearly taking its cues from Age of Extinction, the first Decepticon spotlight video for Angry Birds Transformers is Foreman Pig in the role of Lockdown. We hadn't seen official character art for him previously, instead seeing Megatron (pictured). The game is due for release on October 15th, but in the meantime you can keep reading to see the video!
The XMas goodies are already arriving at CostCo in the San Francisco Bay Area with the arrival of the Bumblebee Lite [Light?] Guardian by Tech 4 Kids. The people who brought us Mash Em's and other AOE licensed items. This is night light accessory aimed at young children who apparently cannot spell yet. This was on display with their Liteforce collection that includes Marvel Spiderman and My Little Pony that are on sale for $9.99.
The official TakaraTomy Twitter account for Transformers has posted new images of Lost Age LA-13 Battle Attack Nemesis Prime. The appropriately numbered figure is a recolor of Power Attackers Optimus Prime, and frankly looks a little underdecorated, even by the standards of the kids-line TF4 toys and the standards of other Nemeses Prime. Keep reading to see for yourself!
The Future Exhibits page of the Indianapolis Children's Museum's website has a listing for a Transformers exhibit scheduled to run between March and July of 2015. From the description, it's going to spotlight the process of creating Transformers figures, much like the exhibit currently in Rhode Island.
