Shia LaBeouf told The Associated Press that Transformers 3 brings the heart back to the franchise. He starts working on the third installment on Tuesday.
LaBeouf said: “When I saw the second movie, I wasn’t impressed with what we did… There were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone… we got lost. We tried to get bigger… Mike went so big that it became too big, and I think you lost the anchor of the movie… You lost a bit of the relationships. Unless you have those relationships, then the movie doesn’t matter. Then it’s just a bunch of robots fighting each other.”
He added that in the third film, “There’s going to be a lot of death, human death. This time, they’re targeting humans… It’s going to be the craziest action movie ever made, or we failed.”
In related news, actress/comedienne Kym Whitley talked more about her role to BV on Movies.
“I usually don’t like mentioning that I am working on ‘Transformers’ because I was also in ‘Transformers 2’ and I got cut out,” she said. “So I try not to get excited about working on the project until I see the final edit, because you never know what’s going to happen.”
She added that “The real excitement about working on the film just comes from working with [director] Michael Bay. He writes these parts for me and just lets me roll with it. You can’t beat that. It’s kind of like working with Larry David, when I did ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm.’ Michael Bay works fast though. He laughs a lot, too. You rarely get someone to just tell you to go ahead and do your thing. That’s the beauty of working with him.”
Transformers 3 is coming to theaters on July 1, 2011.
