On Tuesday, Michael Bay told Rotten Tomatoes that he's already completed a rough draft of the screenplay for 2009's planned Transformers sequel. "I'm not going to let the strike take me down," he said, heroically. Obviously we were intrigued, especially since, according to his IMDb page, he's never written anything. So, we did some digging and — don't ask us how! — were miraculously able to obtain a copy. What's it like? Well, trust us when we tell you that Transformers 2 will truly have everything — action, adventure, romance, explosions, Shia LaBeouf, etc. After the jump, straight from Michael Bay's glorious imagination to your eyeballs, we share an excerpt (at least until DreamWorks sends us a cease-and-desist).
