TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN
Screenwriter Roberto Orci's been talking, and Slashfilm has been listening. Apparently, Orci and partner Alex Kurtzman think it's "time for fresh blood" with the just-announced third movie. "The main reason we would move on is because we risk getting stale and comfortable. If you only sing one song for too long, you miss the opportunity to sing news songs. We'll see." In more current news, the voice of The Fallen may just be "Star Trek" legend Leonard Nimoy. "I actually talked to him about it, given the odd coincidence that he is [director] Michael Bay's cousin through marriage, but fan outcry has also put [Frank] Welker [who voiced Megatron and Soundwave, among other classic characters] in the running."
Starring Shia Lebeouf, release date: June 24, 2009.
