Michael Bay gives insight on 'Transformers 2', 'Friday the 13th', and His 'Dark Knight' script!
Venkman here - It looks like Entertainment weekly caught up with Michael bay to ask him afew questions regarding the recent movies he has been involved with. Mainly 'Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen', which most of us are looking forward to. You just have to know, going into the movie that the dialogue and story is going to suck, then you can sit back and enjoy the special effects and action that made the first transformaers such a bit hit. Here is what The Bay has to say about Transformers:
What can you tell us about Transformers 2? Or, better yet, what will you tell us?
MICHAEL BAY: When we were writing the script, I said to the writers, "I hate sequels that try to make it to the third movie. Pretend like we're never having a third movie, so let's go for broke on the second one. I hate those cliffhangers! Let's just make this movie stand on its own." I really feel this movie is not a forced sequel. I think the script is really good, and I think it's got a lot of new stuff in it. There are a lot of rumors out there, but we've released a lot of fake stuff. We've done a really good job of keeping things secret.
Wow! If The Bay thinks the script is good we are in for an eye candy treat with no meaning or substance! Now on to the 'Friday the 13th' remake
So are you following the same plot as the very first Friday the 13th?
It's a little different. I don't want to give it away because of the Internet crazies.
Huh. Thats funny... the Internet crazies. I'm not sure if we should take that as an insult or a compliment.
Speaking of those fans, what do you say to people who are worried that an update of Friday the 13th will ruin the original?
There are always haters out there, and you can't get rid of that. We try to be faithful, and we're fans ourselves. It's like when I did Transformers - I listened to the fans, you know, but you still have to make your own movie by respecting what was done and trying to give it a whole new twist.
How have you given it a new twist?
You're just not going to believe the first 12 minutes! It's a twist in itself.
I'll admit, I'm a hater. But I will still go see it because I love horror movies. So hes got me there. Here is what The Bay says about the Dark Knight Script:
Finally, I just have to ask, did you happen to see the "Michael Bay's Rejected The Dark Knight Script" floating around online?
[Laughs] That's complete bulls---! I might've read one line of that.
Did you find it funny at all?
It's just, where do people find all of this time?
The Bay obviously can't find the time to write a decent script either. Sooooo... you know. Ya gotta love The Bay. He is who he is.
