When you have a project as big as the sequel to Transformers one has to wonder why we haven't heard any new news about it. Producer Don Murphy to the rescue with a Sunday post on his official blog explaining exactly why there has been nothing but silence about the sequel.
Transformers 2 Feeling Out the Strike
Don Murphy begins by thanking all of you who were able to catch Shoot 'Em Up this weekend. I have yet to see the film, but am anxious to catch it the beginning of this week; I saw 3:10 to Yuma instead. Once done requesting moviegoers to check out the actioner, the producer jumps on the topic of Transformers 2. Why the hell haven't we heard anything about the project since its first announcement?
As it turns out, we have yet another reason to be disappointed at the (possible) upcoming strike.
--- For those of you most anxious about TRANSFORMERS 2, the silence you hear is primarily because people are fretting about a presumed strike in June 2008. Will it happen? I don’t know- does the public care about strikes anymore in this day and age? What do rich people have to strike about anyway? I don’t have any side here ( you hear about the writers and the Producers but that actually means the STUDIOS) I just think stopping work is kind of pointless. But since no one wants to be filming IF a strike happens, everything needs to be done filming by the end of May 2008. So this is affecting the lack of news about Transformers 2 at least for now. Stay tuned.
