Michael Bay Wants to Direct a Horror Movie?! Haters to the Left

Michael Bay Horror Movie
Paramount

Michael Bay has delivered some of the most explosive action films of all time, including the ‘Transformers‘ franchise, ‘Armageddon’ and ‘Pearl Harbor,’ racking up $4.7 billion gross — and a ton of haters — in the process. Now it seems he might turn his attention next to something he’s been dreaming about for some time: directing his own horror movie.

The Hollywood Reporter recently named Bay one of Hollywood’s 20 Masters of Horror, noting the man’s horror influences in his work. But aside from his love for the genre, he wants to sit in the driver’s seat for his own fright flick. In the interview, he states:

I have a great fantasy — that I will probably make a reality — of directing my own self-financed horror movie. … I love this genre because the movie is the star.

Bay has already dipped his feet into the horror pool more than a few times through Platinum Dunes, the company for which he’s produced such films ‘Friday the 13th,’ ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre,’ ‘The Amityville Horror,’ ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ and the more recent ‘The Purge.’ But what do you think a Michael Bay-directed horror movie would look like?

Currently, Bay’s directing ‘Transformers 4,’ titled ‘Age of Extinction,’ and producing the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘ movie, Starz’s ‘Black Sails‘ TV show, another upcoming horror flick ‘Almanac’ and ‘The Purge 2.’ So it might be some time before we see this particular directorial dream come to fruition.
