John Rogers Writing Transformers

Catwoman screenwriter John Rogers is writing Transformers, the DreamWorks/Paramount live-action tentpole based on the popular Hasbro toys, reports Variety.

Steven Spielberg is executive producing the film that is slated for a Summer 2006 release and will likely be a franchise property. Tom DeSanto, who executive produced the two X-Men films, wrote the story that Rogers will adapt.

Rogers is also working on “Rush Hour 3” for director Brett Ratner at New Line, due out next year. At DreamWorks, he’s producing “Fatal Frame,” based on the Japanese video game.
