Transformers 2 Picks Up Speed

{mosimage} According to articles on IGN, CHUD, and, Steven Spielberg is pushing the Transformers II writing team to churn out a finalized story at breakneck speed. Spielberg held a "meet-and-greet" on the Universal Studios lot, and while all articles agree that the sequel will be happening quickly, they seem to conflict a bit on the details; ComingSoon says "there's already a story," CHUD says the story "will be turned in next week," and IGN asserts that the story is "going out within the next 30 days."

Either way, all articles acknowledge that Spielberg wants to get moving on the astf follow-up before a potential Writers Guild strike, and that he confirmed Shia LaBeouf is signed for "multiple" giant-robot flicks.
