ComingSoon.net kindly shares a press release from the fine filmmaking folks over at DreamWorks, and the short version is this: Michael Bay‘s "The Transformers" — July 4th, 2007. Click on in for a closer look at the specifics…

"With ‘Transformers’ writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci taking time off from the project to go to Rome and start working on J.J. Abrams‘ "Mission: Impossible 3," starring Tom Cruise, DreamWorks and Paramount have moved the big screen robots adaptation back from November 17, 2006 to July 4, 2007.

The feature, based on the globally popular "Transformers" franchise, will be directed by Michael Bay ("The Island," "Armageddon"). Steven Spielberg ("War of the Worlds") is executive producing the film, with Lorenzo di Bonaventura ("Four Brothers"), Tom DeSanto ("X-Men," "X2: X-Men United") and Don Murphy ("The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen") serving as co-executive producers.

DreamWorks head of distribution Jim Tharp stated, "Under the direction of Michael Bay, and with Steven Spielberg executive producing, we know that "Transformers" is going to be the kind of explosive action movie that is perfect for the height of the summer movie season. By staking our claim on the 4th of July, 2007, we ensure that we not only have the time to make this movie the way it should be made, but also to build excitement and awareness leading up to its release.""

For some "Transformers" history and a few happy words from the president of Hasbro Toys, you should certainly visit CS.net for the entire press release.
