Spielberg Loves those Transformers

The Hollywood Reporter says Steven Spielberg will executive produce a live-action "Transformers" movie. The project, which has been circulating for a while, will be a joint production between DreamWorks and Paramount, with DreamWorks claiming domestic distribution and Paramount handling international screenings. Don Murphy, Tom DeSanto and Lorenzo di Bonaventura are signed on as producers.

A director hasn't been named but Robert Zemeckis ("Cast Away"), Michael Bay ("Pearl Harbor") and Joseph Kahn ("Torque") have all been mentioned at one time or another.

The film is set for release in the summer of 2006.
