    From the SHH front pages

    Linky

    ey, SHH... Wanted to give you a heads-up that my travels through Los Angeles found me on the soundstages of Playa Vista where Favreau shot the first Iron Man, Cameron did some work on Avatar and Bay shot both of the Transformers films.

    Well, Transformers 3 is gearing up there. I've attached pics of the sign I stumbled upon at the warddrobe department just to offer a little proof. When I peeked inside, posters for both Transformers were hanging up and clothing racks had tons of military gear hanging from them. Above one rack it read "Iranian Army." Above another rack it read "Ukranian Army" and above a third rack it referred to "Matt" ("Matt's costumes").

    There's some big stuff being built here, man. One end of the soundstage had some wooden structures. Another area they were chopping away at styrofoam to create a rocky terrain. And the crew was rolling along something that looked like a giant gear. I breezed on by the "model" shop and, while I couldn't get a good look inside, there were a lot of moon reference photos and NASA moon lander pics. I could have sworn I saw a Transformer, again, didn't get a good look.

    There you have it...! Transformers 3 is in full swing!

    I love that he's having the Make-A-Wish kids on the set. I think he's a much nicer guy than we know.

    Ken Jeong being in this movie could go very wrong, but hopefully it doesn't turn out too bad.

    I found what appears to be a leak of the TF3 script. I got it from Transformers wiki, of all places, in a link. It seems to check out.

    And it is *****ing AWESOME.

    Where they
    get new alt modes, and Mirage gives Prime a holographic trailer?

    I've checked it off with what we've heard, Silverbolt's there, and I'm pretty sure I saw something somewhere about the Italia.

    Everyone thinks the Italia is Hot Rod, but they don't realize that the car might not even be red in the film.


    If the script is fake, then its one damn good fake. It's 126 pages, and is written incredibly well. I flipped through it a bit, and as far as I can tell it's official. If it's fake, then whoever wrote it should write the film, it's brilliant.

    does shia labeouf have a boss in the script? Is there a national intelligence director in it? Because those are apparently the roles that Malkovich and Mcdormand are playing so if those roles are in the script there's a good chance thats it's real

    Well, at least Bay's got that right. 3D only really works with movies that are based with 3D in them (which is why the decision to make Green Lantern in 3D is the BEST. IDEA. EVER.), and Transformers isn't really one of them.

    If Bay can somehow find a way to have the incredible action sequences in them that he makes (you've got to admit, when it comes to fight scenes and action Bay rarely dissapoints), but also with a fantastic plot, he can be totally forgiven for the lack of plot in TF2.

    I've checked the script out. Sam has a boss in this one, and yes, it is the one your'e talking about Lee. Is it legit? Because if it's fake, I can post a link to it. It's a fantastic script, and if it's anything like the current version, then I'm officially hyped for this movie.

    That script where they time travel and get G1 alt-modes was confirmed as fake. I mean come on, it read like a fanboy's wet dream, threw out just about everything that had already been established, and not to mention was almost totally devoid of humans. The last point is the most important in proving it to be fake. Humans cost less than giant CGI robots, and until that changes, humans will have prominent roles in the films.

    Wait, that means I can post it! YES!

    http://www.worstpreviews.com/images/headlines/temp/tf3script.pdf

    Even if it's fake, doesn't it seem odd to you how, save the Italia, most of the information released checks out with the fake script?

    And it's not like Bay hasn't lied before. He said Megatron wasn't going to be in TF2.

    Honestly, the script sounds terrible. I mean I don't mind the idea of these robots being in plain sight, but seriously, the dialogue between Megatron and Thundercracker was beyond the worst I've seen in any of the Transformer films.

    I thought Closerframe was talking about the real one.

    Who cares if the fake one is crap?
