We're already well aware that 'Transformers 4' is going to be something of a reboot of the insanely successful franchise. Gone is Shia LaBeouf and the rest of the human cast in favor of a new set of characters and, from what has been implied, a new array of Transformers as well (it's also probably taking place in outer space). Specific story details are under wraps, but if what we're reading today proves to be true, then it looks like we'll have our first female lead in the series. After the break for more!
Shed no more tears, 'Grey's Anatomy,' for there's a lot more water for Eric Dane to steam up out on the open ocean. Those still mourning Dane's heartbreaking departure from the long-running 'Grey's Anatomy' need only look as far as TNT to get their next McSteamy fix, as the dearly departed doc will captain 'The Last Ship,' a new apocalyptic Naval pilot from TNT. But who will Dane play, and what's it all about, anyway?
Michael Bay, much like Michael Corleone, thought he was out. But they pulled him back in. (And that, we promise, is the last time we’ll link Bay to ‘The Godfather’ movies. Ever.) His third ‘Transformers’ movie was going to be his last, but he’s returning for an as-yet-untitled 'Transformers 4,' and in a recent interview, Bay dropped a few hints as to what fans can expect.
After spending the last five years making three 'Transformers' movies, Michael Bay decided to take a break and make his "Small" movie. Considering it's Michael Bay, and stars Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg, we're curious to see how small his 'Pain and Gain' is. We'll know for sure April 26, 2013, when it hits theaters.
Of all the villains James Bond has faced over the course of his decades-long tenure, did you ever see him go up against classic literary character Captain Flint? Well, you already have! As Starz gears up for production of its Michael Bay-produced 'Treasure Island' prequel 'Black Sails,' the talk of the seas is who could fill the boots of the iconic Captain Flint. So when looking for an iconic British villain, why go further than one of 007's fallen foes?
It would probably appear to most of us that, on every conceivable level, last summer's 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' was a financial success. The Michael Bay-directed three-quel made over $1 billion theatrically worldwide, which, as it happens, is a lot of money. But not everyone was satisfied, namely, Hasbro. The toy company announced today that while the box office dough is all well and good, what it's really interested in is toy sales. Naturally, the plan is to sell more toys, and that means introducing new characters.
A&E is getting into the Michael Bay business. No, there won't be any big explosions (or maybe?), but the network has just picked up a cop drama titled 'Occult' from Bay's Platinum Dunes banner. Can we expect something a little spookier, perhaps?
By now you've read about the terrible 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' draft that hit the web a few weeks ago. You know, the one where the turtles are from "Dimension X" and Casey Jones is an 18-year-old dating a CBS-interning April O'Neil. So bad were the reviews of this script that the entirety of the internet agreed it was a good thing that Paramount postponed the project indefinitely. But now one of the film's producers, an outspoken fellow named Michael Bay, wants you to know where exactly to lay the blame.
When you think of all the expertly-directed period naval battles we saw on TV this past year, all...one...of them, one specific example comes to mind: 'Game of Thrones' season 2 episode "Blackwater!" Seen as one of the best battle sequences ever put on TV, the episodes direction seems to have caught the attention of Starz and Michael Bay, who've hired the man behind the camera to direct their new 'Treasure Island' prequel 'Black Sails!'
Don't feel too bad for poor Michael Bay on the loss of momentum with the critically debated 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' reboot, filed down to 'Ninja Turtles.' Not only does the acclaimed, yet oft-maligned director still have 'Transformers 4' (and God-willing, 'Bad Boys 3') to fall back on, but now Michael Bay has picked up yet another TV project. So, what's it about, and how likely are we to see it?
