Plenty of unconfirmed updates and the dishing out of several previous rumors do not seems to stop media from uncovering reports on the forthcoming sequel of the hit 2007 "Transformers". Recent news coming from "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" suggests that the Michael Bay-directed film has become the latest addition in the list of upcoming 3-D movies.
This 3-D report appears to be holding some truth. It was revealed in page 14 of Dolby's promotional PDF for "2008 ShoWest Edition" as the newsletter exposes the list of slated 3-D movies in 2008 and 2009. Still, some argued that the 3-D release of this action film is yet a done deal. ComingSoon noted that the final decision on the third dimension format will depend on the availability of the Digital 3-D and IMAX 3-D screens. Meanwhile, Bay hasn't come out with any comment regarding the matter.
If the movie sequel about the war between two robot clans on Earth is indeed be done in 3-D, it will join the earlier announced movies to be made using the special screening format, including "Bolt", "Igor", "Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D", "Avatar", ""Coraline" and "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs".
Set for June 26, 2009 release, "Transformers 2" is scheduled to kick off its production on June 2 in Pennsylvania, but whether the filming can go on as plan still have to wait for the certainty of the actors strike. Additionally, on the concern of the film's casting, Bay has let out confirmation of the signing of Isabel Lucas to play the Alice character through his message board.
