I have no idea where this came from or if it is real, but I can give you this:
Coming Attractions has learned that the movie rights for a Transformers feature film have been successfully acquired. A Hasbro representative confirmed in a phone call to CA that the feature film rights for the property were no longer available. When asked, the Hasbro representative chose to not reveal which company or individual now had the rights...which leads to these all-important questions: who has them? What are they doing with them? And are they planning to make a new animated movie -- or will it be live-action?
