Transformers 3 Set for 2011

transformers-2

After months of speculation as to what Michael Bay‘s next project was going to be, he has announced via his official message board that his next project is in fact Transformers 3:

Well its official: We have a great Transformers 3 story. The release date is now July 1st 2011. Not 2012.

Today is Day One. This morning started with an ILM meeting for five hours in San Francisco. Currently I’m flying with writer Ehren Kruger to Rhode Island to talk to Hasbro about new characters.

P.S. Megan Fox, welcome back. I promise no alien robots will harm you in any way during the production of this motion picture. Please consult your Physician when working under my direction because some side effects can occur, such as mild dizziness, intense nausea, suicidal tendencies, depression, minor chest hair growth, random internal hemorrhaging and inability to sleep. As some directors may be hazardous to your health, please consult your Doctor to determine if this is right for you.

Pain and Gain is right after shooting of Trans 3.

Michael

Of course I am happy that the speculation can finally end on whether or not Bay is going to return but I was hoping for Pain & Gain before Transformers. At least Bay is finally saying himself that it will happen. It also looks like Bay wanted to get one more shot at Megan Fox in before production but after everything she had done can you blame him? The astute reader will also notice there is no mention of Bad Boys 3 in this post so that probably means that the story is still in the very early stages.

Are you looking forward to Transformers 3?

  • After watching part 2-part 1 was kind of lame; I bet Michael Bay will return for a three-peat.
  • Rizzo
    Am i looking forward for T3?..HELL TO THE YES....Bay is Spielberg and Lucas transformed into ONE...We need people like him. Keep em comin and transforming BAY. I love your projects and directing style. I might not be able to handle working for you. I rather watch it from the audience seat. Im waiting buddy. ROLL OUT!!!
  • HelenWheels
    I, for one, am looking forward to the score for the film almost as much as the movie itself, and I hope that Steve Jablonsky will reprise his role there as well. I know that the "Fallen" score was critically panned, but I liked it and hope he's tapped to do the next one.
  • NNOOOOOOOOOO not so soon as this, so what that means just abotu a year to make it, bay is so found of these films arnt he? how else can he satisfy his fetishes for fox as much as this as well as make big bucks
  • WIL
    YES TRANSFORMERS 3 cant Wait...yall haters need to calm down Transformers movies are great nd i apreciate the effort that Michael Takes to make the movie great, cuz its hard as hell to make a movie like that.
  • WO WO WO You actually spent money on the novel?! WTF!!! I am a huge Bay fan as any writer on this site will tell you but even I acknowledge TF2 is Bays worst film. Also, Bay had final cut on the film. There is no studio and director's cut. The cut you saw IS Bay's cut.
  • Joerg
    Bay best movie is Transformers. Then The Island and then Transformers2.
    Transformers2 theatrical cut it's the issue.. it's too short. It lacks some major connecting scenes that the official novel describes and that probably they even filmed but decided to to not even release and extended cut of the movie on Blu-Ray/DVD.. that is a poor marketing decision.
    If you read the Transformers2 novel you would understand the theatrical cut better, and you wouldn't understand why the heck there are so many little scenes missing that would have made the second movie top-notch. The writer strike and production issues alone are not enough to justify the lack of those scenes.
  • The Rock is everyone favorite. I really wish Cage would work with Bay again because Cage brings the dramatic actor mentality to an action film and the rock proves that, that makes a huge difference. Nic Cage for TF3 anybody? :-)
  • Jack Giroux
    Nope, you're definitely wrong. The first half of The Island is pretty good and interesting, but the last half is mediocracy. Its an Ok movie, but The Rock is miles better. Definitely one of my favorite action movies.
  • Quick note - Bays best movie it The Island, The Rock is just his most critically acclaimed.
  • Jack Giroux
    As long as Spielberg is heavily involved with this like he was with the first one then I'm fine. The second one lacked the charm the first one had, not a great movie of course, but it was fun. I just hope Spielberg stays over Bay's shoulders every step of the way to make this good. Still cant believe Spielberg said Transformers 2 is Bay's best movie- The Rock is!

    And yet Bey and Hadbro cannot see the general reaction or groan whatever the case may be, a handful of overmerchandised kids want anothe Transformers movie, Bay should get it over with and just show the kids her titties. he's been trying to sell sex in transformers from the start in a kids movie with words like "bitch" and "pussy" thrown around. Maybe Fox should get it over with and show Bay the titties then maybe he'll stop this atrocity.
  • I really hope Megan Fox's character is killed in the first 5 minutes thus making the possibility of a kick ass story.
  • Ugh, this is terrible news. I'd rather get my balls caught in a blender then sit through another Transformers. Wish he was doing Bad Boys 3 instead.
  • boni
    oh god please make it stop. another transformers movie. megan fox is in it at least we can see her poor acting skills and her beauty
