I can imagine the cheer… Michael Bay is going to hand the reigns of the Transformers movies over to new blood…
Talking to USA Today the director said he’s going to move on: “There’s kind of a new chapter, a new direction in movies I want to make. I have a lot of stories to tell. And it’s about flexing new muscles.”
Oh and his new passion is, we kid you not, a documentary on Elephant poaching. A worthwhile endeavour certainly, but a little out of the blue, no?
Either way, Transformers: Age of Extinction continues to manufacture bags full of money… it may not be Bay’s decision if he gets to leave, after all those robots in disguise are a license to print money.
