    Talking 2008 Camaro featured in upcoming Transformers movie!

    Not sure if this belongs here or not, but here goes...

    Call me a geek, but I'm a fan of the 80's cartoon and toy line, the Transformers. Paramount and Dreamworks are producing a live action Transformers movie (executive producer Steven Spielberg), due out in July 2007. Word from director Micahel Bay and producer Don Murphy is that GM cars will play a major role in the film. Some rumors include a Hummer and even a 2009 GTO. But here are some photos of one confirmed GM vehicle: a 2008 Camaro.

    The story from the movie apparently is that an Autobot named Bumblebee (who was originally a VW Beetle in the cartoon) starts off as a 2nd gen Camaro. He gets destroyed, and rebuilt as a 2008 Camaro.

    Lots of this is rumors and speculation, but you can see the photos for yourself. As a Transformers fan, I'm happy that this movie is being made. As a GM fanatic, I'm thrilled that we might get to see a 2008 Camaro featured in a big budget summer blockbuster next year.

    Seems like a big commitment for a car that has not been given the official greenlight, huh?

    Cadillic Cien concept was used in the movie "The Island". that hasn't been seen since. but in this case, i think a camaro is almost a done deal.

    Those Hollywood SFX engineers..they made that car a spot-on replica. Accurate down to the last detail.

    Those guys are good.

    Uh-oh, The Island was a Michael Bay movie too. Let's hope the Camaro doesn't meet the same fate as the cars from The Island (Cien and SSR).
