Michael Bay Contemplates a Transforming Career Move

by | April 7, 2005 | Comments

Ever since Steven Spielberg climbed aboard as executive producer on the Paramount / DreamWorks project "The Transformers," fans have been wondering who the director will be. Buzz earlier this week stated that it was going to be a toss-up between Michael Bay ("Armageddon") and Roland Emmerich ("The Day After Tomorrow"), but Variety reports that the gig may be Bay’s … if he wants it. Based on the extremely popular cartoon and toy characters of the 1980’s, this big-screen "Transformers" adaptation is presently scheduled to begin shooting in the fall, and the studios have pegged November ’06 for its release.The project’s first draft was turned in by John Rogers ("Catwoman"), but Bay became involved after a second draft was put together by his "Island" cohorts Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci.
