Michael Bay Comments on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

by at . Comments

Entertainment Weekly talked to Michael Bay (pictured) about Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. We were encouraged by his take on sequels:

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.

Those that saw - and depised - Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, can relate to the idea of sequels being written as lame segues to the final films in a franchise.

Let's hope Bay keeps his word and that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen doesn't fall into this category.
