Michael Bay Says Transformers 3 Will Have Even Less Robots
Wait, don't you mean more robots? No, we do mean less. Michael Bay recently attended a presentation in Hollywood for the Academy on the sound of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Hero Complex covered the event and published a small quote from Bay at the end about what to expect in Transformers 3, which is currently slated for 2011. "Although the number of robots increased significantly from the first film for the second, the third film -- which will hit theaters in summer 2011, won't be as robot-heavy and there will be fewer explosions, a tight-lipped Bay said after the Q+A." So Michael Bay is going indie!? Just kidding.
“There will be a nice crescendo ending,” Bay said. “It gets much more into the robot character. The last time you kind of met a few of the robots; this time you’re gonna get a much cooler landscape.”
Apparently fighting in a forest (with IMAX), fighting in Egypt next to the pyramids, and fighting at the Smithsonian, wasn't already cool enough? Where does Bay think he's taking this? I don't think the problem with Revenge of the Fallen was that it had too many robots, it was much more the story and the script and crazy location changes. Although, if this means we won't see Skids and Mudflap or that damn sex-addicted bot named Wheelie ever again, then I'm all for it. Transformers 3 is being written by Ehren Kruger, but I'm sure Bay is working on it, too. Sounds like he's already telling them what to and what not to include in this.
