Michael Bay to Helm New Alien Franchise?

Posted: June 27th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Michael Bay to Helm New Alien Franchise?Submit Comment
DreamWorks is currently working to preemptively acquire screen rights to "I Am Number Four," the first of a six-book science fiction deal that has "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" director Michael Bay aboard to produce and possibly direct.

The franchise, co-written by "A Million Little Pieces" author James Frey, is about a group of nine earthbound alien teens who escaped their planet just before it was destroyed by a hostile species. While the high school-aged kids assimilate, the title character discovers that he is being hunted by the enemy that blew up his planet.

The deal puts Bay right back in business with DreamWorks, Steven Spielberg and Stacey Snider. It is expected that Spielberg will be active in a behind-the-scenes capacity, similar to his role on the "Transformers" franchise.

Sounds dumb but what the f*ck do I know. If he goes Bad Boys I'll be there, if he goes Transformer-Armegedon I'm out.

"can he not direct anymore?" Could he ever? He's to films what the Three Stogges were to house painting. I just wonder how many intergalactic fart and sh*t jokes he'll squeeze into that film.

This ass-nut still looks and acts like the porn director he once was. Don't stray too far from the fold. Don't let ambition get mixed in with original creativity. Bay rule # 27.

This man just can't make a drama movie, can he? All those science-fiction, kick-ass action movies, and he can't do a f..king drama movie. He has a lot to learn from Spielberg - at least that man does blockbusters at the same time he does "The Pacific"...

Bay you did Transformers 1 and 2, perhaps time for something different like Bad Boys 3 or another big action movie. Stop with the aliens.
