'Transformers 3' Loses Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman


Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci
The confirmation that the writing duo for 'Transformers' series will not return to pen the third movie has been let out by Orci himself in a forum post.


Although they have been involved right from the beginning with the writing of 2007's "Transformers", Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman will not be returning to the script duties for "Transformers 3". Orci himself has confirmed his and Kurtzman's exit through a post on producer Don Murphy's forum.

"It's true," Orci wrote simply in response to a question about the truth behind speculation that the two writers are out. In further post, the co-writer of 2009's "Star Trek" assured that scribe Ehren Kruger, who worked together with him and Kurtzman in penning "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen", knows what to do for the third movie. He wrote, "He really did his homework. He's awesome."

In late March, Orci has suggested the possibility of him and Kurtzman not returning to do the third film. "Time for fresh blood!" he wrote also on Murphy's forum. "The main reason we would move on is because we risk getting stale and comfortable. If you only sing one song for too long, you miss the opportunity to sing news songs. We'll see."

"Transformers 3" will have Michael Bay back on the directing seat. Leading actors Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox have been confirmed to make a return as Sam Witwicky and Mikaela Banes. Bay has earlier revealed that the release date of this action movie has been moved up a year from July 1, 2012 to July 1, 2011.
