Transformers 2 news

So Transformers 2 has yet to hit production, but that doesn't stop the rumor mill from churning at full force. I will warn you ahead of time that the following news should be taken with salt handy, and that if they are true could potentially be a big spoiler. Now that we've got that out of the way, onto the news. IESB has quite a bit of info on the sequel. While some have reported it is in production, us smarter fans know that it doesn't start shooting until June, since Micheal Bay is still having the script tweaked (obviously delayed due to that pesky Writer's Guild of America strike...which I don't think is bad because writers need to get paid too, just saying it was pesky). So that's coming along swimmingly at this point. Coming from the script is the big news however, and that is apparently we will be seeing Constructicons in the sequel (cue holy s**t moment). And that's not all. They will also merge together and form the inevitable Devastator (recue holy s**t moment). No word on what they'll be named, because Bonecrusher was in the first film while also being a Constructicon. There's also a hefty list of roles that are being pegged for the film. They include:

[CHUCK] 19-25 yrs., Sam's roommate at Princeton. He runs a conspiracy theory website. Funny in an irreverent, edgy way, he is shocked to see his conspiracy theories come to life. (2nd Lead)

[U.S. MILITARY LEADER] Late 20s/early 30s, African American with a great sense of humor and a tough military presence. (Supporting lead)
