Here is another quick weekend update coming you way for Transformers. Since the film already looks pretty bonerific and is on track to rack up some serious numbers this July, we have been alerted to even more sequel talk and this time it is from producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura on a Transformers Sequel
It looks like everybody who survives the first installment is already back on board for more, so we might as well hear from one of the minds behind the franchise on possible sequels for Transformers. The good people at SHH have caught up with Lorenzo di Bonaventura to discuss the topic. Unlike those who are optimistic on more installments, Bonaventura claims that only ideas are being thrown around and nothing more... yet.
"I would say all of us were very reluctant to even think about it, because that's a presumption of success that none of us really want to make. Now that we've seen the film finished, now that the audience has told us that they love it when they see it, now that it feels like we have a successful entry a month from now, we've begun to talk about the ideas that we feel we can bring from the mythology that we didn't get a chance to do in this movie and the ideas in this movie that we'd like to experiment further with. There's no plotline, there's no writer hired. It's really internal to the filmmakers sort of going, 'You know what? We really love this and what about this?' I would say we're throwing ideas around right now in the hopes that we get to that place where we can sit down with a writer and really talk about it."
If Transformers opens huge, which it should, expect Bonaventura to be sitting at such a table sooner than later.
