A couple of high profile projects for 2006 have tentative release dates. DreamWorks’ Transformers movie will be released on November 17, 2006 and Warner Brothers’ Happy Feet will be in theaters on the same date.
The Transformers is a live action version of the cartoon series of the same name. A very good animated film was produced in 1986, which was directed by Nelson Shin. I am curious to see how Megatron will turn up in the film, if he does. The screenplay was written by Roberto Orci (Mission: Impossible 3, Legend of Zorro and The Island) and John Rogers (Killing Floor and Rush Hour 3).
Happy Feet is an animated project, whose storyline involves a young, musically talented penguin in Antartica that has many adventures- which he tells of through song and dance. It’s being directed by George Miller (yes, the same man that bought us the classic Mad Max series).
Miller is also supposed to be working on Fury Road, the sequel to The Road Warrior. But that project isn’t moving anywhere.
