Huffington Post recently spoke with the director about the trials and tribulations of getting his next film, Pain and Gain, off the ground. Here's what he had to say about being the king of Hasbro's cinematic empire.
It was just one of those things. It's like, when you look what's going on in the film business with the franchise frenzy right now, why is James Cameron doing two more Avatar movies? Why is Peter Jackson doing three more The Hobbit movies that are in the same world as The Lord of the Rings? When you have a franchise, it's very hard to give it up."
The director than went onto claim that this will not be a reboot in any way.
Michael Bay then confirmed that he will be bringing back Peter Cullen as the voice of Optimus Prime.
