It's been a little while since there's been any news from the Transformers movie production, but today, IESB.net has a short interview with the film's writers on the direction the movie is starting to take.
One thing that's bodes well for the film is that the writers seem to be taking the history of the franchise seriously. When answering questions like "Megatron, tank or gun?" "are you thinking Generation 1, Generation 2? Mixture of both?" and "Will we see the homeworld (Cybertron)?"
We are handling everything like a Supreme Court. We are taking everything in from the fans and taking it under judicial review. Treating every decision like it's law.
Here's hoping it doesn't get completely fucked up along the way.
