According to the union rules (Writers Guild of America), you can't have any more than two individuals credited on a single writing role.

So AIUI you can have four writers total credited as follows:

Story by person A & person B
Screenplay by person C & person D

All remaining writers would have to be given comparatively minor credits like story consultants or script editors or something.

Is This It?

Post by Brendocon 2.0 » Tue May 17, 2016 8:38 am

Well the title looks to have been revealed, as was bound to happen Someday.

Transformers 5 is now:

TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT

Why they've gone with that is probably Hard To Explain, but I guess you can Take It Or Leave It.

Heavily foreshadowed by Shia's t-shirt in the first one and Wahlberg's daughter being Barely Legal in Age of Extinction.

Maybe Michael Bay knows exactly what he's doing and is a plotmaster supreme.

Or maybe it means nothing and is just a reflection on The Modern Age.

So was everyone else watching the thing, Marvel movies are utter shit.

Do like the crazy analysing of the title, though, because the last one was set in an age of extinction and the one before was all about the last three days of the lunar cycle.

Cue many days of people who won't like this film no matter what pining over Nolans.

No sign of any pre production in Detroit so far but I have visited "Hong Kong"

Why is there no lens flare on that traffic cone? Why isn't everything moody and blue-tinged?

I don't believe you.

Come on now, the title age of extinction clearly referred to the extinction of the dinosaurs. Which happened in the first five minutes admittedly but it's mildly relevant. Maybe Gladys Knight will walk past in the background in this one. I guess Transformers: I'm Not A Paedophile Honest, I Have a Card That Says So wouldn't fit on billboards (I'm not entirely sure now anything else happened in that one).

Curious how much will link to AOR - for better or worse, there was a few threads they could use for this.

Josh Duhamel (did we mention he was back) has tweeted a pic of the new Barricade:

https://twitter.com/joshduhamel/status/ ... 4025404416

I'm oddly happy about this for no readily apparent reason. I'm sure he won't be doing much but it has felt most of the rank and file Decepticons have been a bit bland in the last few films so having one who made a strong impression in the first film and I suspect is well remembered by more casual viewers (not in the "Ah, that's the character Barricade" sense but "Oh yeah, the cop car one, that was cool" way) is appealing.

He'll have 30 seconds before exploding.

Heard he's getting a whole 12:51 of screentime.

Nice to see Barricade decide to come back. Had assumed his First Impressions of Earth had put him off.

Happy that Duhamel is back to be honest. Out of all the Good Guy Humans, I felt he got the balance of the tone of movie best. Also would agree with Barricade being a good decepticon character as such. In fact, any carry over from the first film is a plus for me.

Except the blatant racism. You know what I mean.
