Sigh. It has all been confirmed. Decency, creativity, and the concept of film-as-art-form are now certain to be violated once more by the gargantuan salty strap-on that is Michael Bay's ego... Yes, there will be a sequel... Yes, he is directing again... The release date for this impending sodomy: June 26, 2009.
There is a new writer, Ehren Kruger. Yet his arrival on the scene offers little hope. Previous credits include Scream 3, Reindeer Games, and The Skeleton Key... Such a triumvirate of rubbish from just one man. It beggars belief.
As somebody who would dearly love to forge a career as a writer/director, the endurance of Michael Bay aggravates me intensely. Let me put it this way...
"Hey John! We're gonna go see the new Michael Bay movie, wanna come?"
"No thanks guys! I've got plans."
"Well, I'm just gonna stay in for the night, be lectured on racial equality by Kevin Myers, whilst being given a striptease by a hormonal Twink... It should be just as enjoyable really!"
