The Transformers: According to today's issue of The Hollywood Reporter, a live action Transformers film is heading to the big screen. The Transformers buzz hit heavily with kids in the 80's as the toy for choice when they had the ability to transform normal every day objects, like cars, planes, etc., into fearsome fighting robots. The buzz was so strong in the 80's that the phenomenon eventually took on the airwaves in the form of the one of the most beloved, die-hard fan enducing cartoons to date!
"The Transformers" -- the ever-morphing Hasbro toy line introduced in the mid-1980s that has gone on to spawn comic books, multiple television series and an animated feature -- are being prepped to change shape again, this time into stars of the big screen. Angry Films topper Don Murphy (whose next film is "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen") and writer-producer Tom DeSanto ("X-Men" and "X2: X-Men United") have teamed to produce a feature-length, live-action movie based on the popular brand. The duo are expected to shop the project to studios shortly, and DeSanto said they have already received interest from a handful of directors hoping to get involved in the project. DeSanto is currently working on a story treatment for the project before he and Murphy hire a screenwriter to adapt it for the big screen.
