"I've been writing Transformers 2," Bay told the site [Rotten Tomatoes]. "We've got our characters all designed. I always write all my scripts, my movies, anyway, so at least I've got something to give the writers. It's like a template. We have a really good outline so I worked on that (via SCI FI Wire)."
Bay tried to spin his defiance of the Strike as simply making an outline for the writers to work from. Now that the setting has been established, he is planning for all hell to break loose in the next flick when it come out in June 2009.
