Pearl Harbor director Michael Bay is in negotiations to bring popular 1980s toys THE TRANSFORMERS to the big screen in a new live-action movie.

Bosses of toy manufacturers HASBRO have teamed up with movie studio Dreamworks to bring the project to theatres next year (06).

The Transformers brand is a toy line of giant robots that morph into cars, trucks, planes and ships.

The Transformers were led by OPTIMUS PRIME, while MEGATRON was the leader of the earth-destroying evil Decepticons.
