Interview: Michael Bay, Shia LeBeouf on Transformers
by Alaina O'Connor
Michael Bay admits there were flaws withTransformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura says, “We tried to do too many things in the second movie, which didn’t give enough time in any one of them. We were constantly jumping to the next piece of information, the next place.”
So, with shooting forTransformers 3 underway, director Michael Bay wants to take the film in a different direction cutting out the goofy comedy, maintaining a coherent story, and shooting the film in 3D.
But will the film, slated to come out next summer, be the last in the franchise? Plot details are still under wraps, but Bay hinted that it may be.
“As a trilogy, it really ends. It could be rebooted again, but I think it has a really killer ending.”
As for Megan Fox, who was dropped from the third installment and replaced with Victoria Secret model, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, star Shia LaBeouf had some words of farewell.
“I love Megan and I miss the girl, but Sam and Mikaela became one character, and here…you have discovery again from a new perspective.”
