Nina Dobrev rumored June 5th, 2008

TFLAB are report­ing, through a tip from “Gwen”, that Nina Dobrev (Degrassi: The Next Gen­er­a­tion) may be fea­tur­ing as a uni­ver­sity stu­dent in TF2.

Tyrese and John Voight Return May 19th, 2008

Chud have con­firmed that John Voight (Defense Sec­re­tary John Keller) and Tyrese Gib­son will be repris­ing their roles in the movie sequel:

‘I just talked to Shia a sec­ond ago, and left John Voight a mes­sage 15 min­utes ago,’ he said, inad­ver­tently let­ting slip that Voight’s Sec­re­tary of Defense char­ac­ter returns for the sequel.

‘Michael Bay is going to up the ante on round two and raise the level. I can’t go into any details , but it’s going to be some real one of a kind things in this movie that no one has seen visu­ally in their life. Michael Bay is really fired up to try and outdo what he did on the first round.’

Rachael Taylor out of TF2 May 14th, 2008

Moviehole spoke with Rachael Tay­lor and con­firmed that she will not be appear­ing in the sequel:

“I wasn’t con­tracted for a sequel any­way, but I also think it would be pretty ridicu­lous for my char­ac­ter just to show up and say ‘We’ve got some more com­put­ers to play with!’.

More impor­tantly, I don’t think I’d wanna do it to be hon­est, and not for any par­tic­u­lar rea­son other than the fact that I’ve done it. I’m just drawn to doing dif­fer­ent things. It was the same when I went to the U.S, I didn’t want to do TV, because I’d done it. I want to be able to mix it up all the time.”

Well, that’s that.

Bay says “No to Teresa Palmer” May 14th, 2008

Robot Speculation: Constructicons and Devastator April 5th, 2008

The IESB have thrown out their Trans­form­ers 2 robot roll call, and with it they state that the Decep­ti­cons shall have the help of the Con­struc­ti­cons in the sec­ond movie.

In the car­toons, their names were Scrap­per, Bonecrusher, Scav­enger, Mix­mas­ter, Hook and Long Haul. And what do we get when they all com­bine and form one huge ass robot? That’s right boys and girls, we are going to see DEVASTATOR on the big screen!

… I’ll re-iterate that. Dev­as­ta­tor is big.

Here’s a pretty awe­some fan mock-up of what Dev­as­ta­tor may look like in the movie, cre­ated by Rise Stu­dios. A cin­e­matic adap­ta­tion of this char­ac­ter shall prob­a­bly appear a lot more com­plex than this, to fit in with the style already set out by the first movie.

As for the human side of the argu­ment, IESB have posted up a prospec­tive char­ac­ter list which is now wait­ing to be cast:
