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.
