While the first “Transformers” did have more genuine emotion than its sequel, it’s a bit of a stretch to say the film had “heart”.
However Shia LaBeouf tells The Associated Press that the upcoming third instalment plans to bring “the heart back to the franchise”.
LaBeouf says “When I saw the second movie, I wasn’t impressed with what we did… There were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone… we got lost. We tried to get bigger… Mike went so big that it became too big, and I think you lost the anchor of the movie… You lost a bit of the relationships. Unless you have those relationships, then the movie doesn’t matter. Then it’s just a bunch of robots fighting each other.”
So how will that be resolved by a third entry? “There’s going to be a lot of death, human death. This time, they’re targeting humans… It’s going to be the craziest action movie ever made, or we failed.”
Meanwhile Paramount Pictures has revealed that Alan Tudyk has also joined the cast, though details of his role are being kept under wraps.
