Bay could be returning to Transformers
We’ve all heard that Michael Bay was going to leave the Transformers franchise after Dark of the Moon, but that was before the movie hit big. We’ve heard that he and Spielberg are talking to Paramount about doing a fourth film (here), and Bay gave an update on that to Channel News Asia. “How did I know someone’s going to ask me this question today? We’re talking about it, but there’s nothing right now. I’m going to do a tiny movie first, then we’ll talk about it, if I potentially do it,” he said.
It’s uncertain if Bay intends to direct again, but he’ll most likely stay on as a producer instead. Bay has spent the last few years directing Transformers, and he obviously wants to move on to something else. Having Bay produce the film will allow for him to do something different, but still influence the film. Despite how much people have been against Bay’s involvement in the franchise, he pretty much made the franchise what it was…..fun, nastolgic, and mindless action.
