Supreme genre writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are done bringing those zany transforming robots to life. But who else will be able to take us inside Bumblebee's deepest character struggles?
Over at the Don Murphy boards, Orci popped in to tell fans that the writing duo would most likely not be returning for the third Transformers film. And of course there's going to be a third film - we got toys to make people.
"Time for fresh blood!" writes Orci. "The main reason we would move on is because we risk getting stale and comfortable. If you only sing one song for too long, you miss the opportunity to sing new songs. We'll see."
Well if this frees them up to write the Star Trek sequels (which no one has announced, but I'm willing to bet they get made), then fine. These two are some serious Trek fans, and someone needs to be around to keep J.J. in check.
