Transformers Characters Revealed

Transformers writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci reveal which characters they plan to include in the upcoming film plus more on the script and director.
Transformers movie writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci recently spoke to Sci Fi Wire about the upcoming film, the script, and what its all about.

"Transformers is very tricky," Kurtzman said. "It's a movie franchise based on a toy line, so the first question you have to ask yourself is, 'Well, what's the movie?'"

Kurtzman added: "We sat down with [executive producer] Steven Spielberg and we said, 'Listen, the action scenes in this movie are a given. So what's the movie?' And he said, 'It's the story of a boy and his car. I want to bring back the old Amblin movies.' I went, 'Oh, my God, Back to the Future. Great. We're in.' So we got it. And it's a real challenge, because very much like The Island, very much, I think, like pretty much any movie—and I totally believe it's why War of the Worlds worked so well—the key to making those movies work is to be so invested in the people and to maintain the subjectivity of your humans. If you start Transformers with giant robots sitting in a spaceship flying through space, your movie is dead in the water. So it's all about keeping it at a human level and seeing the amazing things that are going on through the eyes of your characters."

"We haven't handed him (Michael Bay) a script yet," Orci said. "He's nice to even say he might based on being friendly to us."

They also told

"The staple characters: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Soundwave, Shockwave, Starscream, Jazz," Kurtzman replied. "There's going to be a lot of them. You're going to have ten Transformers in that movie, and if that's not enough, you can go see 2, 3, 4 or 5."

"The meat and potatoes are going to be in there," writing partner Roberto Orci continued. "We're just missing the premise for the sequels."
