Transformers was one of the most successful movies this year, (it was also the most pirated), so a sequel is expected. However, the writers strike is causing problems. If Transformers 2 is going to make its 2009 release date it needs to turn the engine on pretty soon.
Well, Director Michael Bay posted a New Years greeting on his website, adding that “Transformers 2 will be coming soon.” Now, Cloverfield is coming soon. Jumper being released next month is soon. I don’t see how a film that may not even make 2009 is ‘coming soon’. But enough of the nit picking. He is probably saying it to assure the fans it is happening at some point in the next five years, which will no doubt make them happy. We got X-Men and Spiderman three years apart so we will just have to be patient and hope the writers strike ends soon.
