IGN Filmforce talked to Transformers screenwriter John Rogers about the big screen adaptation. Here’s a clip:
I was a big fan as a kid. It was one of those tricks of age that once I grew out of it as a toy, I kind of assumed it no longer existed. It was a bit of a shock to find out they’re still such major cultural icons. My new hobby is collecting ads from around the world starring cars transforming into funky robots. It’s amazing how many there are. From a writing standpoint, what drew me to it was the chance to write wide-screen fights on a scale not often done in Hollywood, and also cool human characters faced with such bizarre revelations.
