Here's a translation I tried to make of parts of an article I read today in the french movie magazine "Premier Cine Live":
Set: Egypt, in front of kheops pyramid, stands an ancient 30’s palace built for King Faruk’s guests.
At “Action”, Shia runs through the yard, stops at the doorstep and hits the door with his shoulder. Megan Fox, John Turturo and Ramon Rodriguez come next and hurry inside the building.
Shia heads up, shout a few words at an imaginary Bumblebee, and gets in.
Three cars, the Camaro, the red TRAX and the green BEAT, start quickly and stop a bit further away to look out. The three vehicules are driven by black-suited (and thereby “invisible”) stuntmen behind the smoked glass.
At the end of the day, the crew moves to the third and smallest pyramid, Mykerinos.
John Turturo, back as allways angry agent Simmons, has to climb up a few stones. This hasn’t been done for 30 years: Too many accident occurred and egyptians had forbidded it.
Turturo will try to run from an imaginary Decepticon.
Michael Bay says: “I had the idea of these two stupid Transformers, Skids ans Mudflap. They’re twins who can’t stop bickering, but they do heroic things at the beginning of the movie.
Bumblebee, on his side, has become more serious. He doesn’t want to leave Sam’s parents’ garage. There is also an old Transformer, who loses screws and bolts at every move. And it’s John Turturo voicing him.”
The movie will start at Gyzeh, Egypt, long before pyramids were built, and will end at the same place nowadays, with a huge fight beetween Autobots and Decepticons.
It’s said that we’ll learn in the movie how pyramids were built. Does it involve any Transformer?
Sorry if my english is not perfect. For french fans, it's in the march issue of "Première Ciné Live", page 96.
That's it !
