Tyrese Gibson will be back for more silliness as Sgt. Epps in Michael Bay’s Transformers 3. In a post on Twitter, he confirmed by saying that

“Yes I will for sure be in Transformers 3. Get Ready!! Epps is here to STAY!!”.

Wonderful news. What would we have done without Epps and his amazing character insights such as "That guy is a Ass...Hole!" and "DAAAAMN" and such. Anyway, this is the first of the regular cast members to confirm their role reprisals. Expect Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox to return as Sam Witwicky and Mikaela Banes of course.



All we know about the movie so far is that its being written by Ehren Kruger and Bay has described the screenplay as “feeling very different from the other two”, promising that the story will be much more about character, and will feature a lot less robots than Revenge of The Fallen. The film is being prepped for a shoot later this year, with an announced July 1st 2011 release date. Apparently, Paramount was pushing Bay to shoot the film in 3D(surprise surprise).

I'm willing to give a third movie a whirl I guess. As much as ROTF wrecked my head with its constant retardation, I still enjoyed the Robot dust ups. If he is true to his word and focuses more on THOSE characters and not mentally challenged parents, humping dogs and crying moron room mates I'll pay to see Mr Bay's latest fiasco.

ror@ problem is the robot dust ups that were the only reedeming part of ROTF are apparently going to be scaled down since he said less robots. and the man is INCAPABLE of doing stronger character movies so he can try all he wants and it will still suck.

Hmmmm...Parts of this idea sound good, others not so much. I guess it couldn't get too much worse than ROTF...can it?

I just wanna see some Dinobots. And Wheeljack better be there to build them. And they should have an all new devastator that looks more like the original. The last one was just lame, and why the balls. So unnessesary. He looked like a pile of junk. And why havn't we seen Skywarp or Thundercracker. Bay and company really screwed the pooch on this whole series. I hope the story is much better this next time around. ROTF was way to slapstick and not serious at all. I meen a little humor is good to create moments of levity during stressful situations, but all the charactors just came off as retarded. I guess thats just bad writing and egotisticle directing. The visuals were great but doesn't make up for a garbage storyline and bad puns. Bay needs to go back to directing school or maybe he just needs an anti-ego pill or something. They better make 3 epic cause they have a lot to make up for. The fans are not pleased with there blatant disregard for good storytelling. Do your job right Mr. Bay and all shall be right once more. (Sorry for the over dramatics)
I honestly don't think they can make a great follow up to that turd but I guess anything would be a step up. ROTF was an interesting to say the least action/comedy but can we get a serious film about sentiant robotic beings fighting in a serious war which humans have become a part of, and also can we get some better more realistic dialog from the robots? Please? Damn this shit makes my brain hurt not to mention the damage to my inner child. Can we get some Transformers that are actually More Than Meets The Eye.

My 2 Cents, RIKSHAW Renegade

P.S. Ravage was a BADASS. But Soundwave was done poorly and the voice was way off. Can I get some revurberation over here? Soundwave sounds like Dr. Claw from the old Inspector Gadget cartoons. Recokulus Indeed!!!

I loved ROTF..i do admit it wasnt right up there with the first one but it was still bad ass! yes some scenes were a little brain boggling watching the death-scenes but i would definitley see the third regardless!

Yeah the cast could change as much as National Lampoons Vacation movies for all I care. They'd all still have the same depth.
flames809 - 2/11/2010, 5:53 PM
like both movies so cant wait for part 3

@ RIKSHAWRenegade

At least someone's willing to criticize the second one without calling Megan Fox a [foo foo], or otherwise.

I am willing to accept that part two was a disappointment. The first one had the warmth of a Steven Spielberg film. Who could go wrong with Peter Cullen willing to reprise his role as Optimus Prime. That shows the crew had some respect of the source material. The second was misogynistic, racist, and every bit as almost annoying as an episode of "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody".

Speaking of that, holy shit, I want to beat that Asian [foo foo] up so bad. Can't get that "Yay Me!" or her narcissism out of my head. Is that what Disney has come to? Speaking to all the people who starred on "My Super Sweet 16". Hey, if it makes money, why mess with the formula.

Reboot!

@Rickshaw- It sounded like Dr. Claw because it was! Same voice actor.

i love the transformer franchise but i don't love the films they have their moments & the teaser plus full trailer makes them look great when sadly they are not.transformers 3 better be good.

I might update this and add a villain and add a story behind him. Rip Torn was not the greatest idea but who else would be a good Zed.
Thanks for all of the good comments.
P.S. My mom sort of gave me the idea behind this thing.
