Transformers: A scooper over at AICN recently attended the "The Official Transformers Collector's Convention" this past weekend where many details about the proposed film were revealed. Take a look:

"The first word is that the movie is still on track, but there is no script yet or director.� Desanto is working on a story that will remain true to the comics and will feature all Generation One characters.� Vince Dicola, the man behind the score to the original Transformers movie, was in attendance and said he's actively seeking the job for the new movie.� He's helped lend new music to a couple Transformer projects since the movie and has been great about getting out to the cons.� �

Hasbro said at the current rate, we can expect the movie to run in 2005, which is appropriately the same year the original film took place.� No toy line is planned to work with the movie yet, but we do have a 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime coming..."

Just as well, talk of an upcoming Cartoon Network series was also had at the convention:

TV wise, "Transformers Armada: The Unicron Battles" will run this fall on Cartoon Network and will bring the bad guy to end all bad guys back into cannon.� But thats not all!� Next year "Transformers: Energon" will� start on Cartoon Network and will directly follow up the Armada story.� We'll have more combiners, more minicons, and some fan favorites like Ravage back in line.� Apparently the Unicron story will unfold in a way that will lead into an energy crisis, getting Transformers at last back to the very roots of the story from 20 years ago.� Voice actors Garry Chalk (prime) and David Kaye (megatron) had a panel, and said they haven't been approached for the new series yet, but they're typically the last to know when the animation is overseas like this.

Stay tuned for more...
