Bay Leaves Transformers?

In a surprise move, it seems Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen director Michael Bay has decided to leave the franchise and not do a third movie.

It does seem weird that Michael would quit only months after saying he would simply be taking a break before doing Transformers 3 in 2012. It’s also interesting that he mentions it a day before the first public opening in the UK.

The most shocking thing about his interview with (via IMDB) is that he will be doing something different: “I need to do something totally divergent, something without any explosions.” He also goes on to comment on reviewers, “It’s easy to go shoot an art movie in a winery in the South of France. But people have no idea how hard it is to create something like Transformers. They (the critics) review me before they’ve even seen the movie.” Don’t worry Michael, we liked it.

So fans, think back to 2006 and start deciding who you would love to direct the next installment of Transformers.

Tyrese Gibson still can’t believe his luck at being cast in Transformers

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on March 9, 2009 | News,Transformers movie (2007),Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen |

Star of Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Tyrese Gibson, is naturally excited about being part of the movies, but still can’t get over how lucky he is. Tyrese was a fan of Transformers when he was a child (who wasn’t?) and as such is living out his fantasy by appearing in the Transformers films.

Gibson, a singer turned actor, became a hot property after the first Transformers movie in 2007, which grossed $701 million at the worldwide box office.

What’s even better for Tyrese, and something we all dream about, is that’s he’ll have an action figure made of his character for the sequel, Transformers 2, which is released in June.

Tyrese says:

They’re showing us all the latest toys that are going to be out with the film and everything, it just feels so mega-big. It’s a real honour to be a part of this whole situation. I grew up looking at the Transformers cartoon. I was the little kid with the bowl of cereal in my hand, in my drawers watching Transformers. So it’s crazy!
