Seems there is a lot of talk about Michael Bay’s upcoming projects which include the inevitable Transformers 3 and his return to the Bad Boys franchise for a third as well.
GeekTyrant quotes Michael “Boom” Bay:
* He will be meeting later this week with Steven Spielberg, and Ehren Kruger to discuss ideas for Transformers 3. By the end of the week he should have an idea if Transformers 3 will hit your local cineplex in the summer of 2011 or 2012.
* In the meantime “Pain & Gain” is looking very possible as is…
* …Bad Boys 3. Either film coming to a theater near you before or after Transformers 3.
Considering the metric pantload of money Bay’s films have brought in as of late, you can bank on Transformers 3 to come out and I am actually looking forward to it. My hope springs from the simple fact that Bay seems to be listening to the fans and giving them what they want.
The fans wanted more bots, we got em. The fans wanted Devestator, we got him (balls and all). However he did add in some more candy that didn’t taste as sweet with the Jerry Springer Twins and another useless human. Maybe he will continue to listen to the fans cries for inspiration and will tighten things up. Third time’s the charm right?
As for Bad Boys 3, I could care less. The first one was fun, the second was alright, but they really put the senseless into senseless violence – even for Bay. So I might catch it eventually but its not high on my anticipation meter.
By the way, last week when that sonic boom happened over LA, it wasn’t the space shuttle, it was Michael Bay lighting his Barbque!
