Definitely interested to see what Tom DeSanto has cooked up for the new “Transformers” movie, especially considering it’s live-action. It can either go one way or the other – and here’s hoping it’s a gem. DeSanto talked to Dreamwatch about his proposal. "There’s no better mythology to bring to the big screen than Transformers. Transformers has got great characters and created an iconic world, and the mythology still resonates with people 20 years after it was launched. Even though they’re robots the characters have a lot of personality and a lot of heart and people still care about them. That’s a great thing."

"The plan with the movie is that it will combine live action with CGI. I think it’s going to be something the audience has never seen before. In all the years of movie-making, I don’t think the image of a truck transforming into a 20-foot tall robot has ever been captured on screen. I also want to make a film that’s a homage to 1980s movies and gets back to the sense of wonder that Hollywood has lost over the years. It will have those Spielberg-ian moments where you have the push-in on the wide-eyed kid and you feel like you’re 10 years old even if you’re 35. That’s the energy I want to go for."

"Just like with X-Men I want to get to the core of what makes Transformers great. We’re going to get back to the heart of what Transformers is and distill that into a movie."

DeSanto says that the film will be based on Generation One and set on Earth and that he’s been rewatching all the cartoons and reading all the comics.

Thanks to Aint it Cool for the heads up.
