Variety (http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117981560.html?categoryid=13&cs=1) has published an in-depth article talking about how a posssible Screen Actors (http://www.superherohype.com/news/justiceleaguenews.php?id=6861#) Guild (SAG) strike could affect movie productions starting soon. The trade says Hollywood studios are refusing to schedule new start dates on films that can't complete shooting by June 30.

Transformers 2 (http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=37679) director Michael Bay said the labor cloud has made the process harder, but not impossible as he tries to keep the film on track for an early June start in order to make its scheduled June 26, 2009 release date.

"If there is a strike, we shut down, but shutting down isn't that big a deal," Bay told the trade. "You make accommodations, you make a deal with vending houses on equipment and on the stages where you are shooting. You hope for the best, but you can't be incapacitated by the possibility that there will be a strike. We've got to get this town back to work. I can't imagine anyone wants another strike, we're all tired. Hopefully clearer heads will prevail."

Bay said that the sequel is still recovering from the writers strike, and that he's playing catch-up after getting back his trio of writers, Ehren Kruger, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.

"They did a detailed outline before the writer's strike, and now they are in Michael Bay jail, holed up in a hotel and working feverishly," Bay said. "We're paying for a beautiful suite and they are getting a lot of work done. Hiring three writers was unusual, but it has been a godsend in getting us to where we need to be. Somehow you find a way to get it done."

Rachel Taylor probably won't return on TF2.


When asked about returning to the sequel she said "I doubt it, kind of. If they could find a way to write a young Australian computer data analyst into the second one I would be stunned." She seems ok though if she doesn't return adding "It would also be really nice to see a bunch of other actors take over the franchise in a way. I am really proud of the little piece I did in the movie...a new cast can give it an injection of new life that would be cool."

A SAG strike? Don't these assholes get paid enough?ya, the few who happen to make a very nice living...but not the hundreds and hundreds of struggling ones. Then again the only people who are likely to benifit from a SAG strike would be people in full time TV positions where they would make residuals off of internet downloads. And they already make plenty of money. I find it hard to get behind the SAG strike if it happens.

So if Rachel Taylor isn't returning.. does that mean Anthony Anderson won't be returning either? Heh.. I dunno why. .but I like that guy.. maybe its cuz he's also in other movies like Kangaroo Jack.. and.. yeah.. don't ask.. but yeah.. I liked it.. so.. hmm.. this sucks.. I think they could be helping the Autobots out with like a new headquarters or something.. that'd be my guess.. hmm..

The WGA strike at least had something of an "underdog" element working in their favour. The SAG, on the other hand, are at a major disadvantage due to sheer lack of sympathy. We're supposed to feel sorry for a guy who only gets one cherry in his pina colada instead of two?

True that. These guys who whine about money get paid for doing fucking nothing another average joe could do. A line worker at a fucking box company works harder than they do. I cant stand it when I hear some actor or actress bitch about how hard it is.:mad:

I hope that's real - Barricade was too cool a concept to throw away after one movie. Hope he comes back and kicks some more ass, he was way underused in the first film.

Maybe they're just transporting this stuff around, for storage or something? Or maybe Bay is just filming what he can before the June 1st date, in case of an actor's strike. A car chase scene would require no actors (no Shia, no Megan, etc.) and even if the script is still being worked on, if they know a few action scenes WILL make it into the movie - what's stopping them from getting started now?

MitP
03-28-2008, 08:55 AM
There's something so damn predatory about this whole deal. One of the biggest reasons SAG is choosing to strike now is probably because of the recent WGA strike. I guess SAG's assuming that Hollywood's been so burned out by the WGA's shenanigans, they'll have to agree to anything.

It might make sense on a strategic level, but in terms of public relations it's 110% retarded. Sympathy will quickly erode, and the strike will only cement the popular sentiment that American actors are overpaid, whiny monsters.

I'm not trying to say the studios are completely innocent of this mess. We've heard enough horror stories from Tinsel Town to know that. But the SAG strike will only make an ugly situation uglier.

Even if these pics are legit, I think it's safe to assume they are portraying the same vehicle (copies of vehicles seems to be the movie norm for various reasons). I remember spy shots of TF1 where you saw multiples of each vehicle (i.e., 2 Ironhide Topkicks (http://farm1.static.flickr.com/103/268763736_7dc71a2e60_o.jpg), 2 BB Camaros, etc) being loaded up on transport trucks.

@rad:

I would've posted them in that thread if I knew where it was. I just buried them in this one because of the thread title, and because they really don't show anything (like you said), it could be anything from unconfirmed TF2 filming to very un-news worthy storage transport.

Yup I understand the dual vehicles concept. In case one has a problem, they have a backup.

However, with Batman Begins, I believe they had two Tumblers built and on set, and that's a good thing because a drunk driver hit one of 'em and smashed it up pretty good. I think he thought it was an alien and hit it to prevent it from taking over.

That thing cost well over a $1 million to build. I think.

This is old news, but the degree of power actors (and movie stars in particular) are allowed to wield in Hollywood is simply insane. The fact that a single person can destroy an entire production just by walking off the set is seriously fucked, and shows how much the whole system needs to be reworked from the ground up.

Are you talking about the SAG negotiations or what? Allowed to wield? Um, you, the audience gives the power by buying the applicable product (movie ticket, DVD, soundtrack, and all the other ancillary merchandising). But what are you referring to re: whose destroyed an entire production? I'm not following...sorry.

"You" as in "us", Beej? I'm not sure why you're excluding yourself from this phantom audience you mentioned.

John Travolta was working on a production called THE DOUBLE for Roman Polanski. There was an altercation (i.e. 'creative differences') between the two of them, leading to Travolta storming off the set in a hissy fit. The movie collapsed shortly thereafter, simply because the entire project's financial backingw as centered around Travolta.

The SAG negotiations are coming at a convenient time when Hollywood is already recuperating from the WGA strike.

And just for the record, Beej, the audience isn't given ANY POWER until said product has actually been released. I'm talking about the in-between stages, when a star is free to kill a film before its even left the womb.

Understand now?

"You" as in "us", Beej? I'm not sure why you're excluding yourself from this phantom audience you mentioned.

John Travolta was working on a production called THE DOUBLE for Roman Polanski. There was an altercation (i.e. 'creative differences') between the two of them, leading to Travolta storming off the set in a hissy fit. The movie collapsed shortly thereafter, simply because the entire project's financial backingw as centered around Travolta.

The SAG negotiations are coming at a convenient time when Hollywood is already recuperating from the WGA strike.

And just for the record, Beej, the audience isn't given ANY POWER until said product has actually been released. I'm talking about the in-between stages, when a star is free to kill a film before its even left the womb.

Understand now?


My point was simply that power is based on box office, as in prior box office, and you're only as good as your last movie... but yes, I do now understand where you are coming from.

The funny thing is.. it looks like Ultra Magnus (the white rig) is carrying Prime piggyback. :D
Even if it were a fake, it still delights my eyes. http://home.soraya.jp/images/love_1.gif

^_^ Hi guys... long time no see:) Anywho look at the first pic... there is a street name there... Someone should try to get a close up of it. If you get the name then just look up the name and that should tell you what state this is in and maybe even a city if that street is only in one city. Just a thought:)

You might even be able to get the state by getting a close up off the plate on the silver car next to the truck. Just hope its not an out of stater. lol

Those cell phone cameras are getting better and better quality. *shrug*

I dunno. You may be onto something though. Bay could be tossing those out to get people excited.

Bay could be pulling our chain as he has suggested earlier.

But he could also be pulling our chain about pulling our chain.

So we will never know.

I believe its real because the photo could've been quickly snapped by oncoming traffic thus getting a full frontal shot of the truck.

What got my attention is neither spec of cameras nor skills of the photographer. :)
Its whole "Feel free to take a pic of Autobots and post it on the web" parade atomosphere.

If this is a part of new marketing strategy, they should do it more often, even all over the world. :D

The street sign in the Ironhide/Ratchet pic says Lankershim Boulevard...which is a street in North Hollywood (in the Valley, for those of you who live in Cali, like me haha).

Barricade was spotted in Culver City (in California), and Optimus Prime was spotted on the 405 Freeway (in California).

It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to make the assumption that the Californian equivalent of Lankershim Boulevard is the one seen in the pic, dude. ;)

That, and the 405 Freeway runs past Culver City (heading Southbound) and takes you to North Hollywood (Northbound, obviously).

*Sigh* You're one of THOSE members, eh? :rolleyes:

Keep in mind scenes for the first Transformers were shot in Playa Vista (California)...which ALSO is located near the 405. Meh... I guess I'll never convince an unfortunate, non-Cali resident... Haha

PS: I saw in person the Bumblebee mock-up (used during the capture and Hoover Dam scenes) when it was on display at La Brea in West Hollywood last October. So cool.

Transformer 2 confirmed for Philly?

http://www.superherohype.com/news/topnews.php?id=7042

Philadelphia's KYW Newsradio 1060 has posted an interview with Sharon Pinkenson, executive director of the Great Philadelphia Film Office, that seems to confirm Transformers 2 shooting will take place in the city. Here's a clip:

"Dream of the Romans" has been shooting. 'Tenure", "Happy Tears", and "Marly and Me" are upcoming as is Transformers II. But won't giant robots wreck the place????

"Ha, ha. Let's just say the destruction part is going to be digitally enhanced."

Otherwise, there goes the neighborhood.

Stay tuned for possibly more on this as it comes in.

Well, I'm trying but that's a lot easier said than done. I have a few things that I'm working on which will hopefully work out for the best.
