Transformers 2 director Michael Bay told Rotten Tomatoes at the Visual Effects Society awards that he’s already written the sequel and will pass on his script to the screenwriters, who are coming off of the strike:
“I’ve been writing Transformers 2,” said Bay. “We’ve got our characters all designed. I always write all my scripts, my movies anyway so at least I’ve got something to give the writers. It’s like a template. We have a really good outline so I worked on that.” It might be a tad unorthodox, but Bay has high pressure demands. “We had to because I want to make my date. I’m not going to let the strike take me down.”
Bay also spoke to IESB, who he assured that we won’t be seeing Dinobots in the follow-up. ILM’s Scott Farrar also told the site that there will be a lot more robots this time and that the animatics look amazing so far.
Transformers 2 is scheduled for a June 26, 2009 release.
