Steven Spielberg Really Hopes Michael Bay Will Help Out with Transformers 4

After directing three big-budget “Transformers” movies, director Michael Bay announced that he wouldn’t be sticking around for number four. And who can blame him, really. Spending that much time with one particular franchise has got to get boring, so it’s no surprise that Bay wants to do other things before reconsidering his stance on doing another sequel. Executive Producer Steven Spielberg, meanwhile, really hopes that the much-maligned director will return to the series sometime soon. According to him, you can’t make a “Transformers” flick without Bay.

Here’s what he recently told Entertainment Weekly:

I hope so, because I think he made the best of the three with this last one. I certainly can’t imagine anybody other than Michael being equipped to make another ‘Transformers.’ He’s invented a genre and he’s got the secret formula.

Secret formula? I thought all you needed for a “Transformers” movie was a needlessly long script, lots of extended action sequences, one hot chick with limited acting abilities, and award-winning actors slumming it for a paycheck. I guess I was wrong.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.
