The People Vs. George Lucas

George Lucas

There is some sort of indie or fan film project underway, due out in 2009, seeking to flesh out and understand why there is such divisiveness among Star Wars fans. More specifically, their feelings towards the choices made by George Lucas following the original Trilogy. The structure will be based on several hot topics of debate. Seems as though they have been accepting fan submissions of videos. The writer/director is Alexandre Phillipe. I guess we should make a video?

Rotten Tomatoes – Michael Bay Says He Already Wrote Transformers 2

As the Writers Guild of America strike comes to an end, Transformers (2007) director Michael Bay has revealed that he’s already written the sequel himself, despite the fact that his screenwriters – Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Ehren Kruger – were not allowed to work on the project during the strike.

“I’ve been writing Transformers 2,” Bay said. “I want to make my date. I’m not going to let the strike take me down.”

Could Michael Bay be the first to win our Lame Idiot of the Year Award two years in a row?

Transformers 2 is currently scheduled for release in the U.S. on June 26, 2009.
