OPTIMUS WOODS – Producers unaffiliated with DreamWorks have begun development on a prequel to the 2007 live-action movie, “Transformers”, titled simply “Transformer”.
The film will contain none of the characters, premises or story lines of the original, but instead will center around a take on another fictional disguised robot in larval form.
“It’s the story of this cute little transformer’s journey to become a real boy,” said executive producer Deesep Dikon from his office in Bangalore. “Except he becomes a huge city-killing robot in the process. I must work on the details, as I have yet to see the original movie or series.”
Dikon has not yet secured funding for the project, and is seeking clearances to begin.
