Josh Duhamel Transformers 3 Josh Duhamel Back for Transformers 3, Script Finished

If you watch the Transformers movies not for giant robot death matches but for the human drama, you’ll be relieved to know that Josh Duhamel has confirmed that Major (or will it be Lieutenant Colonel?)┬áLennox will return for Transformers 3.

Duhamel has met with Michael Bay and can confirm that the script is done – with shooting scheduled for this summer. He joins fellow fleshlings Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox and Tyrese Gibson who are already confirmed for the third installment in the franchise – along with some Los Angeles locals.

While the movies have definitely spent too much time attempting to convince viewers that the Sam and Michaela romance is a modern day Gone with the Wind, I’d actually like to see Duhamel get a bit more to work with in Transformers 3.

Lennox was one of the only supporting human characters in the first film to be provided with a personal story – a story that was entirely dropped in the second round (probably to make room for more pot brownies). I’m not saying Bay should dedicate a lot of time to the Lennox storyline but having a little more at stake for some of the soldier characters helps add an emotional connection that was absent in the second film.

That said, hopefully screenwriter Ehren Kruger realizes that most of the emphasis should be placed on the cybernetic organisms.

Courtesy of Collider, there’s video to share of Duhamel talking about the Transfomers 3 script (it’s at the end of the interview):

What do you think of the human cast so far? Glad everyone is returning?

Transformers 3 is slated for release on July 1, 2011.

  1. It' about time guys ! Wow. Great news.

    The second film just got too big, too fast with too much going on. Too many stories and side-lines going on, and that just took away from the film direction. Action was sick.. but it could get better. I think I remember Bay even saying it went too big at some point/interview online.. and how he's going to make the 3rd installment a little more focused..in depth.

    I think they need to go the route of having more character depth, as well as a scenario about the Decepticons pillaging the earth for resources to fill with Energon… (they mentioned that source in the last film).. I think they need to bring in a new charcter called “chip” – the genius who can understand the Autobots technology and rebuild Jazz.. Why not – they Decepticons seem to come back

    Perhaps have stations of Autobots around the world, watching over and helping the humans now that the secret is out (per Fallen's message in #2) – coordinating from one central hanger location (perhaps Teletran 1 anyone)!! with SkySpy.. We can't have anymore on Sam, but he needs to be involved..

    They did hint in the last film that he was part of the “war” and they would need him “more than he knew” at some point in time.. I'm guessing they will tie this in somehow, at some point.

    They also need to introduce many other Autobots from Gen 1 series from Prime's command. Like – Hound, Bluestreak, Trailbreaker, Mirage, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe (bring him back and more in depth!), Cliffjumper, Jazz (bring him back revive), Inferno, Prowl, and Wheeljack !

    Here's too hoping !

  2. Yes the story is “Transformers”….not human friends of Transformers. Forget about the humans this time. Let us get to know the Autobots and Decepticons. In the cartoon 75 percent of the dialog was Transformer characters. I want to see Optimus talking and connecting with the other Autobots. I want to hear Ironhide and Ratchet sharing ideas and see them in scenes together. Lets see more of Sideswipe and Jolt, and definately bring back the motorcycle sisters, Arcee and Chromia and the purple unnamed one. I couldn't believe they brought them into the second movie just to completely leave them out of the story. Female autobots are cool. We have gotten to see a bit more interaction with the decepticons in the past but even that should be more. In other words, make the movies about the transformers, especially the Autobots, not the humans. We don't need to see more about Sams relationship.

  3. Sounds good Tony. They might not be able to fit all those bots in the story but I hope they get some of them in there. I think they'll go with the vector sigma instead of energon but who knows.

  4. Dude, I love this idea too ! For sure.. I'll be watching my complete Gen1 series cartoons today to refine my ideas! You need Wheeljack creating and inventing, the brothers Sideswipe and Sunstreaker out there scouting.. hound on patrol with cliffjumper.. talking to each other, getting to know them.. oh the ideas are stirring now brother !!! So true.

  5. They should be able too, if they do it like they are on teams around the globe.. which is where Teletran 1 would come in for global communications from the main headquarters… I think they could pull it off – and have some of them introduced to follow up with later in #4 !! LOL
