Transformers movie rumoured!!!

I am not sure how many people watched transformers in the mid 80's but there is a live action movie in the works based on 80's series NOT the new one. Still not a lot of info about it. But in my surfing around I found this completely unafilliated video and it has completely pacified my worries about the technical abilities to be able to make the transformers look real

OMG I AM SO STOKED!!!!!!!!

Yeah, the VW movie has been around for a while It got coverage on CGChannel and some of the other CG news sites a couple of years ago.

They could probably pull it off for under 50 million dollars and still have great FX.

There's a movie I rented recently called "The Returner". It's dubbed, and pretty stupid, but it has two great CG sequences where airplanes transform into robotic creatures. Too bad it had the whole over-the-top kung fu movie style of acting.

I checked out the site. I wouldnt get your hopes up about a movie. http://themichaelsmith.com/ check under animation

"Can you tell its a CG car? Look carefully there's more than meets the eye.

A camera tracking exercise that we filmed in Rainbow's back parking lot. It was a test for a short movie I was going to do. That's me walking in the background

There's a new webpage devoted to just the VW video, just click here or on the VWVideo button above to access the page. "

Derrick: he wasn't saying that it was a movie promo or anything, just that if someone can do that, it shouldn't be hard to do it in a movie.

I work with some people who can do just amazing stuff with a copy of Lightwave and a few hours to play with.

I would not doubt that in the right hands we could see some kick-*** Transformers action

There IS a movie in the works...That animation as I said is NOT affilliated with the movie...

Here is a link to the Hasboro website (Hasboro retains the rights to Transformers) concerning the movie
