Michael Bay Producing New Alien Abduction Film

alienabduction Michael Bay Producing New Alien Abduction Film

It seems that mega-producer and director Michael Bay can’t get enough of aliens, as he’s added yet another alien-related project to his slate.

As Heat Vision reports, the project doesn’t have an official title but is being referred to as the “Confidential Alien Project.” It’s based on an original pitch by former production assistant and newcomer writer, Bobby Glickert.

Although it’s looking like a more experienced writer will handle the actual script (Paramount is currently looking for writers), Glickert went so far as to cut together a two-minute teaser, which attracted and impressed Bay’s company, Platinum Dunes.

As you can probably tell from the name, the specific plot of this “Confidential Alien Project” is being kept secret for the time being, but it is said to involve alien abductions. Bay will produce the project along with his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. No director has been found yet.

I suppose it’s not much of a surprise that alien abduction is the next project Bay has set his producing sights on. He’s already tackled aliens from the robot angle (Transformers) and will focus on aliens posing as humans in the film I Am Number Four, which he is also producing.

I wonder what Bay’s fascination with aliens are. Does he think that’s what caused Transformers 1 & 2 to make so much money? It didn’t have anything to do with the action and the special effects, right? No, of course not! đŸ˜› …

Having said that, Bay isn’t the only one obsessed with aliens. There are no less than four major alien projects upcoming, including Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens, the LA-set action film Battle: Los Angeles, Peter Berg’s Battleship and the Straus Brothers’ Skyline (all of which made appearances at this year’s Comic-Con).

I just wonder what will set Bay’s new project apart from all the rest of those movies.

More on the “Confidential Alien Project” as news comes out.

  1. Haha! Cool. I wonder what all he’ll have explode

  2. Why cant this man be stopped?

    • Two words and a Roman numeral… Bad Boys II

  3. Ive loved every movie he has made.

  4. The film is actually about arrests of leaf blowers…

    • this comedian^^^

    • @nowhereman:


  5. I’m just hoping he doesn’t ruin alien abductions.

  6. I think Michael Bay should direct a Power Rangers movie! Think about it. He would make it so kick @$$!!!

  7. Aliens also abduct children. For information, see my site, aliensandchildren.org. For stopping alien abductions with a thought screen helmet, see my other site, stopabductions.com.

    • aliensandchildren.org not has information linking the epidemic of autism to alien abductions. This spring it will has a section on wandering and alien abductions and a list of scientific articles on genetic anomalies and autism.

  8. I think we all know there might be only a handful of true alien abduction movies, like 4 might even be good…IE, fire in the sky, skinwalker ranch, close encounters, 4th kind.

    Sure some of his movies are lame, but I am curious. Ill wait and see what he does.
