Producer Confirms Transformers 2 Won't Make Strike Deadline
A hate plague on delayed sequels!
"The facts are that everyone is saying there will be [a strike]," said producer Don Murphy. "Lots of ideas are being pitched around. I suspect there will be one but the strike thing kind of confuses everyone. When would we have to start? There's no script. How would we be done by end of June?"
Murphy is positive there will be a sequel. It is just that development is likely to be held up with talent unavailable to proceed with development. "What we're expecting is that the Writer's Guild who's up in October will just magically elect to push until June which is when SAG is up. They'll all go on strike together. With no writers, you can't do any development."
