Transformers 2?

If you checked out my previous post from today, then you know what that 2 at the end of a title means. Yep, sequel. And it should come as no surprise that one of the summer's biggest blockbusters, Transformers would get a sequel. But why no rumblings, rumors or news? It seems a strike is on the horizon. Latino Review reports that according to producer Don Murphy, there could be a strike in Hollywood. He posted the following on his blog: "For those of you most anxious about TRANSFORMERS 2, the silence you hear is primarily because people are fretting about a presumed strike in June 2008. Will it happen? I don’t know- does the public care about strikes anymore in this day and age? What do rich people have to strike about anyway? I don’t have any side here (you hear about the writers and the Producers but that actually means the STUDIOS) I just think stopping work is kind of pointless. But since no one wants to be filming IF a strike happens, everything needs to be done filming by the end of May 2008. So this is affecting the lack of news about Transformers 2 at least for now. Stay tuned." Hopefully this impending strike cleans itself up, so that we get a sequel to the movie. The first one was fantastic, but there are definitely other aspects of the Transformers universe that viewers and fans alike would like to see. Strike delays Transformers 2?
