The other day we heard that Paramount Pictures is now back in the Jason Voorhees business, taking the rights to 'Friday the 13th' back from Warner Bros. and preparing a sequel to the 2009 remake. Today, we learn that the producers of that remake, Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes production company, are back in the saddle as well.
Explosion-happy director Michael Bay is entering the world of video game adaptations through the Tom Clancy-based 'Ghost Recon,' with hopes of turning the series into a film franchise, as Michael Bay does.
As you may remember, 'Transformers 3' (dubbed 'Dark of the Moon') climaxed with a massive battle between warring robots that essentially leveled the city of Chicago. We expect nothing less from director Michael Bay, so we didn't bat an eye at that iconic skyline crumbling into a million pieces. However, Bay has shared a new image from the set of 'Transformers 4' that suggests that this massive action set piece has had a lasting impact on the world.
In the past couple of days, Michael Bay revealed new looks at his metallic 'Transformers 4' cast, including two Autobots and the latest iteration of Optimus Prime. Now he's unveiled the "new" Bumblebee, who underwent a few transformations of his own.
'Transformers 4' has promised a complete reboot for the franchise including all new robots. One classic who will return despite the new direction is the Autobots leader Optimus Prime. But even Prime isn't exempt from the reboot. The main robot character will have a completely new look in the film and director Michael Bay has revealed that new look to the fans.
'Transformers 4' is heading to Austin and if you live in the Texas capitol, you could be a part of it? Have you ever wanted to be in the background while robots rampaged about in the foreground? Well, this may be your big moment and we'll show you how to get your moment on the big screen.
The Michael Bay-produced 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' reboot has already begun filming in NYC. We've already seen photos of Megan Fox's April O'Neil, Will Arnett, a few henchmen and the first pics of the pre-CGI turtles themselves. Though, there's still at least one more role to fill and that's for new addition William Fichtner.
Earlier today we heard that Michael Bay's new Starz pirate drama 'Black Sails' had officially set its 2014 premiere, and now Bay's other nautical drama has some good news of its own. TNT has officially greenlit apocalyptic naval thriller 'The Last Ship' to a 10-episode series, giving our first look at Eric Dane/Adam Baldwin drama in the process! See 'The Last Ship' in action inside!
Pirates may not be perfectly in season these days, but Starz's 'Black Sails' will almost certainly beat NBC's 'Crossbones' to the punch. The pay-cable network has officially set a January 2014 premiere for its Michael Bay-produced series, adapting the early days of Robert Louis Stevenson's 'Treasure Island,' but will 'Black Sails' prove to be a bountiful haul, or an empty vessel?
