Script For Transformers 2 Will Probably Suck

A writing duo reveal the harrowing tale of writing the script for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

The Writers Guild strike was problematic for Hollywood and apparently the new Transformers movie has been hit especially hard. Speaking at BotCon, writing duo Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman talked about the mad dash to get the script written.

First, they had just two weeks to hammer out a 20 page outline that would serve as the pre-production guide, and then after the strike had finished, they had only three months to get the script finished. The problem was that they had other projects that they had to work on that were rapidly approaching their deadlines

To solve this, they hooked up with screenwriter Ehren Kruger, whose credits include The Ring and Scream 3. The trio holed up in a hotel suite and wrote furiously, trading pages back and forth with Michael Bay occasionally showing up to see what they were up to. To be fair to Orci, Kurtzman and Kruger, they might have written something amazing, but personally, I wouldn’t be willing to put money on it.

Let’s hope the explosions are really good.
