    Entertainment Weekly says that Transformers 2 negotiations betweeen Jonah Hill and DreamWorks have broken down, and the Superbad star is no longer expected play a sidekick to Shia LaBeouf in the upcoming sequel from director Michael Bay.

    Word is that he will, however, appear in a cameo role in Ben Stiller's "Night at the Museum 2" for director Shawn Levy.

    Good.

    No comic relief characters in TF2 please. I would like some humour, but not just squeeze in actors just for the sake of being comedic relief in smaller roles because it becomes kinda uneccesary. I wouldn't mind humour between Shia, or Megan, or his parents in the second film, but don't have Anthony Anderson or Bernic Mac returning, or sqeeze another comic relief character in. Unless it's Steve Buscemi

    No we have stopped negotiating with Jonah, and Teresa Palmer was not considered for a role - you have wrong info.

    I'm loving the Flash shirt.

    But oh a serious note about Hill....*breathes big sigh of relief*

    I'm a dog chasing cars. I don't know what I'd do if I caught one. I don't have plans. I just do things. I'm not a schemer.

    I use a knife because guns are too quick. Otherwise, you can't savor all the emotions. You know who people are in their last moments.

    I believe whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you... stranger.

    I like what the guy has been in but, at this point if he was in transformers it would seem more like tf2 was jumping on the bandwagon. get some people that aren't as big if your going the geeky route.

    Please no Jonah Hill. He plays the same character in all of the movies he's in. He's voice reminds me of sand paper. An why not use Teresa?

    -negotiations between Jonah Hill and Dreamworks have broken down
    -maybe a little co-ed co-habitation could be in his future since Teresa Palmer signed for an unnamed role last week.

    Jonah Hill Drops 'Transformers 2'

    I can't be the only one who's just a little relieved that Jonah Hill has dropped out of negotiations to star in Transformers 2. Hill is riding high on the comedy wave, and while a big-budget summer flick is always a career booster, it's not like Michael Bay is known for his comedy. According to Entertainment Weekly, "negotiations between Jonah Hill and Dreamworks have broken down, and the Superbad star is no longer expected play a sidekick to Shia LaBeouf in the upcoming sequel from director Michael Bay."

    Bay and company are expected to start production on Transformers 2 this summer at the University of Pennsylvania, which fit with early reports that Hill would be playing Sam Witwicky's (LaBeouf) college roommate. Now that Hill is out of the picture, maybe a little co-ed co-habitation could be in his future since Teresa Palmer signed for an unnamed role last week.

    There were no details about why Hill chose not to sign on the dotted line, but I'm sure a lot of fans are glad that he did. Unfortunately it's not all good news coming from Hill's people; instead of starring in Transformers 2, he has agreed to appear in the follow-up to A Night at the Museum -- so now I don't know what to think. As crappy as Transformers 2 might turn out to be (and there is a good chance it could be pretty darn crappy), it would definitely be a step up from A Night at the Museum 2. Or maybe not.

    What do you think? Should Jonah stick to the simple comedies without all the big-budgeted effects?

    I think GOOD JOB, that kid may actually have a brain, they should really stop trying to make this movie funny! It will never be as well written and as timeless as something like Ghostbusters, we know they're trying to shorten the ILM bill, but they should just stick to action. After youve seen the film 3 times you gotta FFwd anyway, I would rather a 35 minute movie of solid CG action than all the piss jokes and gay ass one liners from ironhide. When 2 is complete they should come out with a Hypercondensed-for-fans Version with no humans... but theres no way in hell they'd get a solid 30 mins... maybe 10.

    And whats with all these scrawny white girls Bay keeps trying to get in the movie? I assumed in TF 07 he was getting good use of the casting couch, but DAMN it seems like every week some unknown girl from australia with the exact same measurements happens to get hired on to play an IT Specialist, Mechanic or earth's Ambassador to the Autobots.

    I cant imagine how many times hes looked down and said "Don't worry baby I'll write you in!"

    nice work Mike! Keep up the... Actually, could you fire yourself?

    I prolly would, I dont know if that high up you can avoid abusing your power. But I just cant understand this dudes mentality at all, almost every film hes on he completley twists up the purpose and looses the point somewhere along the way, and still gets PAID! Its like He just walks around with a megaphone telling people to do things that make him feel good, and nobody else thought to bring a megaphone so he cant hear them.

    honestly if you just look at dudes posts and listen to the movie commentary, you'll notice he doesnt have reasons for a lot of the big decisions in the film. Its a lot of I felt, I thought, I wanted, and MBs inability to deal with another topic that is more famous than he is...

    Honestly! ...Honestly the Transformers are so well known it would have been a blockbuster anywai. Anyone between the ages of 5 to 30 can give you a vauge idea of what Transformers are, That coupled with ILM action and no matter what the Seats will fill. I'm positive he made bad decisions, I'm positive he did a bad job, simply because one of the first facts I knew about this film was It would be geared towards a PG-13 audience. That was and is stupid and anyone who defends that is stupid, when that company is selling movie based toys Aged 5+ and No Masterpieces cause the designs are bullshit.

    All I'm saying is what Ive been saying for months; bad desisions made this movie bad. It could have been a classic, up there with the Star Wars, LOTR, Ghostbusters, Back to the future, and even the Matricies. but now the name Transformers is soiled, and no matter what, these crappy tin-foil-os are gonna be the default iconic idea of a cybertronian, as fans tell me that thought doesnt strike fear in your soul [if not think trilogy, you'll cry.]

    It'll be at least 5 years before Bay has moved on and thats if he doesnt figure out this franchize is money [if you do it right.] Then another 5-10 to wash the taste out of our mouths, So im thinking 2022 maybe we can see some proper TFs on the big screen. Thats if Macross, Gundam and the Brave series mess up massively and havent PWNed us.

    Honestly I told him to his face good job, but I was drunk, now that I think about it I should have given him the business! Its a sorry ass thing, when a person who doesnt know you knows you can do better.


    I should have said dont get me started... but there was no manga last week, so im a little on edge.

    It's times like this I'm glad Bay does have an ego large enough to justify its own climate because he would fall over dead knowing the world blames him, personally, for the actions of probably thousands of other people. Also, you've just accused Steven Spielberg of being a moron, as he is the one who hired Bay in the first place.

    And the things you've said are all your opinion-- your opinion of Bay's process, the film's quality, etc. I don't agree with your opinion. The fact that the film made $700 million dollars makes it very clear that neither of the above men are stupid. So, y'know, don't make huge generalizations like that. It makes youlook dumb.

    Is the film flawed? Yes, but for the most part I like his ideas, I agree with his creative choices (which are his to make, btw! It is his football!) and so I continue to enjoy his films. Seriously, when was the last time you saw a giant robot rock a live action movie? NEVER! Would I like to see a few more A-list actors onboard next time to give him proper hell the way Connery and Cage once did? Yes. Bay is always spoiling for that sort of thing. Shia understands it. Buscemi gets it, too. If more people understood it was a competitive game, and learned how to play, better things would come of it.

    Also, people don't seem to really internalize that Bay has made nine of these gargantuan movies. It's a whole helluva lot in, ultimately, very few films. If you consider the fact that John Ford directed something like A HUNDRED movies, Bay still has a long, long way to go to develop his craft to its fullest. Things can only get better.

    I can't wait for the sequel.

    I don't know whether or not there would be some comic relief in the movie but...
    How about Masi Oka for Sam's nerd room mate. I can almost imagine the dorm room already filled with a bunch of robot toys when Sam moved in.
