Bay moving on after Transformers 4

One more dance with Optimus

Even as he guides passion project Pain And Gain through the post-production process, Michael Bay is steeling himself to dive back into the maelstrom that is another Transformers entry. He debated whether or not to step back into the franchise after Dark Of The Moon, but was convinced after Paramount gave him the time and space to make Pain. But according to the director, the fourth adventure with Optimus Prime and the rest will be his last.

Speaking with the LA Times as the new Transformers theme park ride opened at Universal Studios in California, Bay dropped a couple of nuggets about the next film, including the fact that there will be some redesigning of the robots and that he’s looking to start with an entirely new cast.

The reason for the changes? He’s setting the franchise up so it can be handed to “the next guy.” Of course he’s said things about stopping before and has always been tempted back, but after four films you can see why he might be ready for new challenges. We hear Megatron will also retire, as he’s decided to open up a garage in Dayton, Ohio.

Michael Bay = the Brett Favre of Cinema.

That's an ugly, NASTY thing to say about Brett Favre, violator!  Just MEAN! :P

Brett Favre won a Super Bowl; Michael Bay hasn't made a decent movie yet so invalid comparison.

Yeah, didn't he say the same thing after the last one?  Child, Please!!!  :)

Wow, please do not slander Brett Farve's good name. He might have to text you a pix of his dick.

While I like Bay's Transformers mainly for the visuals, the story sometimes is lacking. Hopefully they can go the Unicron route and end up killing Prime off. Maybe move the franchise 30 years into the future. Megatron is ressurected and goes after Prime for revenge. Who knows, the animated movie was a very good pretense for a RL movie, Transformers Prime also has some good stories/elements. All I can say is until Bay gets over the use blooming effects, explosions, and over dramatic pauses to carry his movies the story is not going to get better.

Or they could live action the Robot Chicken skit about prostate cancer. Oh wait certain liberal types might be offended by that.

"Hi kids, I am Optimus Prime. I can't get prostate cancer, but YOU CAN. So get your doctor to check your ass!!" LOL.

 He said this after 2 and after 3. What a dick. TF 4 is supposed to kick off a new trilogy, if Bay sticks to his word and this is his last, some poor director is going to be left with the task of cleaning up Bays mess. Ugh.

regardles of the Bay Haters , i liked all the Transformer Movies. they had pleanty acction and no need for making them more than what they are. yes there is always room for improvment  as there is for all Movies out there,. the first one banked $709 million, the 2end $ 836 million the 3rd $ 1.123 billion.. right' some poor director is going to have the massive stress to pull it off and bring in numbers like Bay's Transformers. clearly he just does not give a FUCK bout what any of you have to say.. his movies will always make bank, that's why the studios let him do what he does. blow s..h..i..t. up.. good or bad.. all that crying and whining and hating you people do just makes you sound like you need to GROW THE F..U..C..K.. UP..and get over it... so go on now and fire back don't care i'm done with this page. TROLL all you want...

I loved the first two, but man the third is unwatchable. I was hoping IT would be his last.

Oh and I only get offended by bigoted slurs against minorities (besides you can make fun of a cancer that you will probably have in two years if you want to)

BUT did everyone here know how Lazurus thinks, he's not afraid to use hatespeech (although I'll bet he doens't use it to anyones face, because y'know...he's a coward.)
