    SAN DIEGO – With “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” a resounding box office success this year, it is only natural for conversation with one of the film’s stars, Tyrese Gibson, to shift to discussion of a third film. “Absolutely,” said Gibson when asked what was happening with a “Transformers 3.”

    “It’s in motion.”

    In interviews following “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” director Michael Bay made remarks saying he wanted a break from big blockbusters, saying that he was in the process of working on a dark comedy. Gibson reassured fans that Bay would indeed be getting behind another “Transformers” film.

    “Michael Bay, he definitely needs to take a break from (“Transformers”), understandably so, but this is the movie — the biggest movie he’s ever directed in his life,” said Gibson. “And so, he can keep producing all of these other projects, but he is officially the king of geeks.”

    Gibson’s role in “Revenge of the Fallen” was markedly smaller than his role in the first “Transformers” film, a fact he claimed he was sure was going to be remedied for a third installment.

    “I will absolutely be back,” he said, “and my part is going to be bumped up.”

    I'm not a fan of Tyrese. But if he has to be back I guess that's ok. But a bigger role? I don't think he needs a bigger role. Just my opinion.

    how did he have a smaller part?

    TFTM...he calls in airstrike ...Check.
    ROTF...calls in the military for airstrike/backup...Check.
    TFTM...acts annoying diva with a rifle and backpocket credit card...check.
    ROTF...acts again like an annoying diva with rifle ...check.

    Still don't see how his part got reduced?

    I can't believe he reassured fans that Bay will do the third film. Unless Bay told Gibson he will direct it.

    No, damnit, keep the individual military personnel's roles small. There was WAAAY too much of them in the first film, and just about right in the second. Keep it like this.

    Gibson, I'm not saying you're a bad actor, but deal with it.

    Sounds like a good plan - hopefully we'll see more Robert Epps performances from Mr. Gibson himself when the third movie comes out someday! Or as I shall quoth...

    "BRING IT!" :D

    I'd welcome more Tyrese in TF3! I always liked him and Josh Duhamel!

    Well I for one would love to see more of Tyrese and Josh in the next movie. I hope they do not bring back Megan, she is rather annoying. I also would like more bots and more into the movie story line since they made the Fallen the leader of the Decepticons and not Megatron.

    Love Tyrese and his character, but I hope the role of the army doesn't grow even further. There was ENOUGH of them in ROTF. I'd love more Epps individually though.

    ROTF was far more Sam-centric than the previous film, such that Epps, Lennox and any Autobot who was not Optimus or the twins got a much reduced role compared to the first film.

    Diva? He didn't do anything in ROTF, let alone "act like an annoying diva".

    Yeah, I know you're trying to be funny, but really, you're misrepresenting.
