'Transformers' sequel's writer Roberto Orci has posted an online message hinting that the sequel to the blockbuster action movie is going to feature about 20 robots in it.
Since the story of "Transformers" sequel got out to the public, director Michael Bay has noted that "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" is going to have a lot of new and unique robots. Recently, writer Roberto Orci hinted that the sci-fi action movie may be having ten robots each on the two quarreling robot clans.
Posting the report on Don Murphy's message board, Orci wrote, "I'd love and think we could almost barely manage ten on each side, with some front and center and others as more supporting." If this DreamWorks' film is indeed having 20 robots within, it would top the robot cast in the first film which features 13 robots, five on Autobots' side and the rest were on Decepticon's side.
On the shooting location news, The Daily Pennsylvanian reported that the filming at the University of Pennsylvania is scheduled to start around June 12. According to University spokeswoman Lori Doyle, the shooting on the campus will be taking places outside the Quad, at Psi Upsilon Tau fraternity house famous as "The Castle", and probably on Locust Walk and Spruce Street. The principal photography is also expected to involve about 200 people, 25 tractor-trailer trucks and cranes.
"Transformers 2" is said to be featuring Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro and Rainn Wilson. It is scheduled to be screened in theaters nationwide on June 26, 2009.
