Wow, Michael Bay is a serious glutton for punishment. Barely a breath-catching minute after the slavish effort that “Boom-Boom” Bay and the f/x wizards over at Industrial Light and Magic put in to get Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen in theaters this past summer, they’re proposing to run that marathon all over again in order to get Transformers 3 in theaters for Summer 2011.

Bay made the official announcement today – and he even threw in a funny little stab at Megan Fox in response to all the you-know-what she’s been talking about him recently. Oh, and Transformers 2 haters listen up: apparently they have a “great story” this time around (do you believe it?).

Here’s the the official message Bay posted on his official forum:

Well its official: We have a great Transformers 3 story. The release date is now July 1st 2011. Not 2012.

Today is Day One. This morning started with an ILM meeting for five hours in San Francisco. Currently I’m flying with writer Ehren Kruger to Rhode Island to talk to Hasbro about new characters.

P.S. Megan Fox, welcome back. I promise no alien robots will harm you in any way during the production of this motion picture. Please consult your Physician when working under my direction because some side effects can occur, such as mild dizziness, intense nausea, suicidal tendencies, depression, minor chest hair growth, random internal hemorrhaging and inability to sleep. As some directors may be hazardous to your health, please consult your Doctor to determine if this is right for you.

Pain and Gain is right after shooting of Trans 3.


Ehren Kruger helped out with the “script” for Transformers 2, he also wrote The Skeleton Key, The Brothers Grimm and Reindeer Games. An actual good movie he wrote (ZING!): Arlington Road.

To be honest, after seeing Revenge of the Fallen, I would be happy with Transformers 3 having A story, let alone alone a “great” one. Though, if Bay is thinking of bringing back The Twins, I don’t know how “great” the next film can possibly be.

The official release date of Transformers 3 (as stated) is July 1, 2011. Summer 2011 is quickly shaping up to be pretty epic.

  1. As long as the films are making money they’ll keep on making them. And Transformers 2 make a **** load of money, and I’m sure this one will too.

  2. @ Vic

    I do watch Mythbusters.

    The point the I was trying to make is that Bay is the best at big budget,big boom but all his movies from Bad Boys to Transformers have to have that camp factor thrown in almost for no reason at all.

    If he were to do a 100% straight movie that didn’t have that campyness to it,people wouldn’t mind him so much.

  3. @Longshanks

    Frankly I find Bay’s “big boom” movies utterly empty and hollow. I’d say Emmerich does better.


  4. All of you guys that complain yet still buy a ticket to watch bayformers are wasting your breath. The only way to stop Bay is to Not Buy a ticket to watch the movie. That Simple.

  5. Exactly!

    Plus,shallow as you may think Bay’s movies are Vic,he has unprecedented access to the U.S. military,that I know he likes to use as much as he can which give his movies at least a hint of authenticity.

    I’m sorry,but I’m gonna have to disagree with you that Emmerich does it better.Just look at both director’s resumes and ask yourself,if you were forced to sit through a marathon of either director’s movies,who would you choose?

    I’ll take the Bay collection.

  6. Between Emmerich and Bay, I have more fun with Bay’s film than Emmerichs. Yes, they are empty and hollow, but so are Emmercih’s films. And, besides Bay didn’t ruin Godzilla.

  7. agreed

  8. im a big fan of transformers and i hope that micheal bay keeps the saga going becasue they can make good strories to these movies and i hope barricade returns

  9. Dale, thats one thing I was hoping to see in Transformers was the return of Barricade. But, maybe we can see him again in this one. And I just hope they don’t waste anymore characters.

  10. hmm… bay once said that when he does TF movies..he wants to make them unrelated like saying the sequel would not be like a bridge to the third isntallment…however..after watching ROTF like 30 times since the dvd got out…im begining to see that it is a bridge to this comming third…

    i can see why many wanna take a piece on the tomato throws…but i really do enjoyed the movie…

    i think many were overhyped with the characters…that when they didnt get any screen time or a dialogue even…they jump.

    to me i strongly feel that they will have a bigger role to play in TF 3.

    Bay really kept it true to the TF universe…

    like in the cartoons…such loop holes were everywhere…but no body seemed to care cause we loved to see our charachter in motion….story was not the factor..
    it is what comes next in the scene and what our favourite robots were capable of doing…

    in TF2..there is a reason for megs being brought back…he is non then less the main villain…and optimus..killing him and bringing him back to life was really nescessary…im not really keen to see rodimus any time yet…and beside the dude is weak leader…

    so now that megatron is functioning…i can really see the becomming of TF3…

    i am definately will trail until this movie is out…

    we will watch how it will redeem itself..and by then everyone will relate to ROTF…then they will say..ok now i know why TF2 is like that.

    bay you are the man as how spielberg said it..he was never wrong!!!…

  11. I hope Transformers 3 will have more flying Decepticions fighting more “rolling” Autobots, I mean, come on, that’s the iconic image these two robotic groups have in the cartoons, and I’d like to see that translated in the live action movie. Besides, I think that would help a little bit in letting the audience tell the Decepticons and the Autobots apart.

    And perhaps they can stop shooting scenes in the desert. They did that twice already and frankly, the desert shoot-out in the Revenge of the Fallen looked like it was “recycled out-takes” from the first movie.

    Just my two cents.

  12. hey every1. personally i thort tht rotf eas a gr8 film but had to watch it twice to understand. hpwever i was quite annoyed when sideway was kill almost straight away at the start of the film AND that soundwave didnt come down to earth. in thr g1 series he was my fave charector. i mean they didnt even get the voice right! in 3rd movie they shud hav soundwave come down, not die but live and ironhide or an autobot actually die and stay dead. still gonna c film nd cant w8

  13. hay i am a big transformers fan i’ve seen the first two films and they were amarzing i am glad there is a third film coming in summer 2011 i am looking forward to see it i hope frenzy and barricade return and lets not forget skids and mudflap sideswipe ratchet bumblebee optimus prime ironhide and please i want jazz back he was good as well i want wheeie back starsceram megatron back but not as the tank in the second film i want the alien plane he had in first film i want breakaway as an autobot in the thrid film as a f22 jetfighter

  14. you guys suck! Michael Bay is a legend!!!! Transformers 1 & 2 are the BOMB!!!!!!!!
