This isn’t really a news story, just something to pass along that fans of Transformers might get a kick out of. Last time Shia LaBeouf talked about the quality level of the series, he admitted that the second film wasn’t quite up to snuff. “When I saw the second movie, I wasn’t impressed with what we did,” LaBeouf said. “There were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone…we got lost.”

At the time, LaBeouf promised the craziest action movie ever in Transformers 3. And now, with a chunk of the film in the can, the actor is again promising a more impressive achievement out of this chapter. Read More »

We already knew that the space race between the United States and Russia was going to be a major plot point in Transformers 3. But leave it to director Michael Bay to take that fact to a whole new level. Next year’s blockbuster 3D sequel will be shooting on and around NASA’s Discovery space shuttle at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida beginning Wednesday. We’ve already seen photos of the production, which stars Shia LaBeouf and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, in Chicago and Los Angeles and, with Discovery being prepped for a November 1 launch, the huge scope of the film is once again coming into focus.

Transformers 3 is scheduled for release July 1, 2011. Hit the jump to read everything we already know about the film as well as more details on the Discovery shoot. Read More »

Glenn Morshower Returns for Transformers 3

Glenn Morshower, best known as secret service agent Aaron Pierce on the fox television series 24, is set to return for Transformers 3. Morshower is one of director Michael Bay‘s favorite actors, and has appeared in both of the films thus far. Glenn appeared in the original movie as a military Sargent at the US Soccent, but was killed in the assault by Decepticon Blackout. He was asked to return for the sequel and his new role was named after him. In Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Glenn played “General Morshower.” The actor’s official website confirms that he is playing a role in the new film, although his role is unknown at this time. I’m sure it’s military related.

Morshower has also appeared in Bay’s Pearl Harbor as RAdm. William F. ‘Bull’ Halsey Jr. and The Island as “Medical Courier.”

NO PHOTOS

We’ve known for a couple months now that Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley would be taking over as the love interest for the third entry of Michael Bay‘s Transformers series, and have even got a few glimpses at her showing off her assets on set. But there still hasn’t been any explanation as to what her place in the film would be, or if her cleavage’s screen time would be able to compete with that of Megan Fox.

Finally, we have a little bit of insight into what character she’ll be playing. No word on the cleavage yet though. Learn more about Whiteley’s character’s affiliation with the Transformers mythology after the break. Read More »

Michael Bay

When USA Today confirmed that Transformers 3 would be released in 3D, I assumed that it meant that the film would be converted in post production.

Why would I assume that Michael Bay wouldn’t be shooting the film with 3D cameras? Well… Bay has said in the past that the 3D cameras are too heavy and cumbersome for the fast pace action scenes he shoots. Bay also likes shooting his movies on film, he loves the look of film — and the 3D technologies popular today are all High Definition video. Looks like I was wrong.
