    So fill in the blank. I'm happy with the way the film turned out. It couldn't have been done any other way. Any other way would've made less of the movie.

    So with Michael Bay being a tentative director for TF2, who else would you want to direct the next movie and why? I can't really answer that for myself cuz I actually want Michael Bay to return but if I really had to choose another director, I would choose James Cameron because he is one of a short list of directors who really understands science-fiction story telling mixed with grounded-street-level action.

    So who would you want to direct Transformers 2?
    Why would you choose them?
    And how do you think it would turn out? (what are some elements you would see if it had been directed by him/her)



    And remember.......Peace through tyranny!!!

    Personally, I'd want Bay to helm the sequel..if only because I really dug the movie and I figure why wreck a good thing?

    I would be interested to see how Tim Burton would take the franchise though (he's one of my favorite directors), knowing full well that it would be..rather dark, which would be interesting for Transformers (Batman Returns is one of my favorite comic movies because it is so dark).

    Someone who can handle an epic storyline and multiple characters, many of which are constantly being added... not many out there have the vision, skill set, and fortitude to do that. Also, someone who is willing to pick up someone else's franchise (which takes out Spielberg and Cameron and many others).

    The one person who has all the goods to handle Transformers would be Peter Jackson. Unfortunately, he's also way too busy >_<


    The others would need a good surpporting cast and very good producers to provide them with said cast....

    *Robert Rodriguez - Sin City, 'nuf said :) 
    *Peter Berg - his great directing of Rundown really got my attention.
    *Alfonso CuarĂ³n - love how he handled Harry Potter.

    what is up with all this Tim Burton stuff? The Crow was a dark movie. Batman returns was GOOFY. Geez, just because most of the scenes were filmed "at night". :rolleyes2

    Martin Campbell, Director of Casino Royale. That movie kicks all sorts of @$$. Great story, great action, great pace. What more can you ask for.

    Uwe Boll! That would give something for TF fans to be upset about, heh heh.

    Okay, really I would like to see Chris Roberts give it a go. Chris Roberts is the lead designer for the Wing Commander games and directed Wing Command 3 and Wing Commander 4, then he directed the movie. He was a producer for the new Punisher movie and was a producer for Lucky Number Sleven. I recall when I read an article about him once that he discovered that he enjoys directing movies more than developing games. Be nice to see him on the ball again :)

    Paul W. S. Anderson.. "TRANSFORMERS BEGINS"

    The entire movie would take place inside/underneath Hoover Dam, where the Autobots have to reach "the core" to turn it off and prevent the Decepticons from destroying the planet. Final battle would obviously be Megatron.

    Megan and Shia would all be carrying machine guns and the transformer battles would all be slow-mo, incredibly fake CGI-ish with half-hour long "face off" sequences ala AvP where the alien and predator stared at each other for a few minutes..

    Meh..

    As long as they don't give this 2nd film to the Wachowski brothers (The Matrix)...

    ...after what they did to the Matrix sequels I would not let them within 2 million miles of Transformers.

    The first Matrix was fantastic, and had such promise...

    ... then...


    :rip 

    I rest my case.

    I'd say Bryan Singer simply because, at least from my opinion of the first 2 X-Men movies, he can handle characterization of several characters. Tim Burton might be a good choice, but I don't think I would choose him.
    As much as I respect Michael Bay for the making the first movie as well as he did...I think it would've been even better with a different director (though not any different director).

    Just got another idea for one I'd like to include but I forget his name. The guy who directed Brotherhood of the Wolf and Silent Hill.

    I second this, Casino Royal was fantastic. The perfect combo of action and story telling. Just what the Transformers need.

    Not actually true about Cameron. Aliens is generally regarded as his strongest film and yet it was a sequel to an already highly successful motion picture.

    Jackson would certainly have the chops and there'd be no scrimping on the story or character development. (Try and imagine the Rings films directed by Michael Bay...oh god NO!)
