Transformers fans will rejoice and everyone else will probably just groan when they hear that the sequel to Michael Bay’s giant robots gone wild extravaganza from last summer may contain upwards of 20 robot characters.
The news comes from a post by one of the film’s scripters Robert Orci by way of the discussion board on producer Don Murphy’s website-
I’d love and think we could almost barely manage ten on each side, with some front and center and others as more supporting.
Given that fans of the various cartoon incarnations of Transformers were all lobbying that their favorite character be included in the original film, it seems as if several slots have opened up for those that didn’t make the cut the first time around. Of course, this will just mean more kvetching, campaigning and argueing in fan circles, so in other words, nothing new there.
