From the official press release:


The live-action “Transformers” movie has been set to open nationwide on 07-04-07, it was jointly announced today by DreamWorks Pictures, Hasbro, Inc., and Paramount Pictures.
The feature, based on the globally popular Transformers franchise, will be directed by Michael Bay (upcoming “The Island,” “Armageddon”) from a screenplay being written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (upcoming “The Island”). Tom DeSanto (“X-Men” and “X2: X-Men United”), Don Murphy (“The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”) and Lorenzo di Bonaventura (upcoming “Four Brothers”) are producing the film, with Steven Spielberg (“War of the Worlds”) and Hasbro’s Brian Goldner executive producing, and Ian Bryce serving as line producer.
In making the announcement, DreamWorks head of distribution Jim Tharp stated, “Under the direction of Michael Bay, and with Steven Spielberg executive producing, we know that ‘Transformers’ is going to be the kind of explosive action movie that is perfect for the height of the summer movie season.

Willy Wonka's Backstory

With only about a week left until the release of Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I thought I'd post this article on why he decided to give Willy Wonka a backstory.

"In the movie, Wonka flashes back frequently to his childhood with his stern father, a dentist played by Christopher Lee. "You try to work out your issues, but then you realize those kinds of traumatic issues just stay with you forever," Burton said. "Somehow they just keep reoccurring. No matter how hard I try to get them out of my head, they sort of stay there." Read more here.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in theaters July 15th. Visit the official Charlie and the Chocolate Factory website for more information.
