Good news or bad news? Transformers 3 is officially coming to a theater near you July 1, 2011 (changed from 2012). I will be honest and say that I have yet to watch Transformers 2. Not that I didn't want to. I was on vacation when it was released then was trying to catch up on things when I got back home. I'm waiting for the Blu-ray. Michael Bay made the following statement on his official blog:
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.
You might be aware that there's been a bit of tension between Bay and Fox lately. She referred to Bay wanting to direct like Napoleon or Hitler. This prompted several of his crew to sound off about her diva-like behavior on set. We'll see if she returns for the third film.
