SlashFilm Interview with Transformers 4 Writer Ehren Kruger
If you’ve just come from watch Transformers: Age of Extinction and are wondering how a writer approaches a project so full of visual cues and effects, SlashFilm has a piece that you should read. In the article, SlashFilm interviews Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon, and Age of Extinction writer Ehren Kruger. The main thrust of the interview is about the difficulties of writing for a spectacle-based film instead of a narrative-based film. The answer that Kruger has come up with – “you start to make your peace with the idea that logical sense doesn’t have to be the be-all, end-all.” Yes, there is a conscious effort to set aside consistent, constructed plot and characterization for the sake of the visual “thrill ride” of the Michael Bay movies.
