Transformers 3 in 2011, Twilight 2 in November 2009

Two big sequels have very specific release dates doing the rounds. And it seems that a third Transformers film is a go…

Transformers 2

Just yesterday, we were reporting that the producers of Terminator: Salvation were wasting little time in getting another movie underway, with a fifth film already entering development. And it seems that Paramount is thinking along the same lines with its Transformers juggernaut. With the second film now into its extensive post-production work and due out next summer, it seems that a date for a third instalment is already potentially in place.

According to the latest update over at Dark Horizons, it reports that a German release schedule has the film in place for June 29th 2011. This will, once more, give Michael Bay and his team (assuming Bay returns for a third film) a two-year production cycle for the film.

Meanwhile, also getting a date is the second Twilight movie, which can’t rush into production fast enough. With the first still rolling out in cinemas across the world – it hits the UK on Friday – the second film, Twilight: New Moon – has been confirmed for 20th November 2009 in the States. And as speculated last week, Chris Weitz has been confirmed as the film’s director. That’s the same date, incidentally, as the new Sherlock Holmes movie that’s being directed by Guy Ritchie.
