Michael Bay Set To Direct The Next Installment of Transformers, The Fourth In The Trilogy
Close on the heels of the Delhi bomb blats, more news has come out which could strike considerable fear in the hearts of even the strongest of us.
Yes, another one.
“Directed by Bay, the movie will reunite the filmmaking team from the hit franchise, including producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy, Tom DeSanto and Ian Bryce; and executive producers Steven Spielberg, Bay, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian,” Paramount Productions announced.
The studio, in a press release issued on February 13th, confirmed the news of there being an addition to the trilogy, with a tentative release date of June 29th, 2014.
Shia LaBeouf, who acted as Sam Witwicky, the lead protagonist in the first three movies however is NOT scheduled to return for the fourth movie. It is not clear whether Megan Fox replacement and Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon star, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley will return for the next installment.
My reaction on hearing this news of the new movie, though IS quite clear:
For those who care to remember, the first two transformer movies were vaguely about huge robots turning into cars, loud explosions and boatloads of SFX. Oh, and most importantly, Megan Fox. The first one though bareable to watch was soon followed by Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen (also known as ‘Trannies 2‘). Transformers 2 went on to win the prestigious Razzie award for the Worst Picture of 2009 and Michael Bay took it home with the Worst Director Razzie. When one reads the title “Revenge of the fallen“, one expects the fallen Decepticons from the earlier movie to finally get their revenge on the goody goody two shoes Autobots. This, however, is not the case as we find out that ‘The Fallen’ is in fact the NAME of the baddy decepticon in the movie.
So they knew it was bad, then they did the unspeakable.
They made another one.
Bad as it was destined to be, they went a step further. NO Megan Fox. That’s right, after calling Michael Bay a ‘hitler on the sets’, Megan Fox was fired, and replaced with Victoria’s secret model, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. What followed was easily the worst movie of the series which had as much of a storyline as India had a chance against Australia in a test cricket match.
Which begs the question, Why another one?
I think the answer is apparent.
There can be no other explanation.
Yes, I blame Israel.
As do the Iranians, I’m sure.
There simply can be no other rational reason on Earth why another Transformer movie should be made, other than the ulterior motives of the Israelis. It’s quite obvious that this is Steven Spielberg’s secret Jewish plan to distract the entire Iranian nation with his over-the-top special effects and flashy fight scenes while the Israeli army marches into Iran, conquering it, slowly but surely.
I’m on to you, Stevie.
But seriously, here’s hoping that it doesn’t turn out as bad as it’s predecessors. And if it’s going to be worse, I’m just thankful the world’s going to end in 2012.
