The writers' strike may just have ended, but not all blockbuster movies really need writers, as director Michael Bay explains:
I've been writing Transformers 2... 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. We had to because I want to make my date. I'm not going to let the strike take me down.
