    Seems like they're going for a smaller movie compared to the last 5 films, which I'm glad. Now let's just hope that this cast can actually act.

    Heh, guess this is good news for the half a dozen 12 year old's out there that even know who any of these "stars" are.

    One would think if the studio wanted a semi successful movie, they'd cast someone far more popular and recognizable than Hailee Whateverhernameis and a bunch of "who?" children.

    Because that didn't work with Mark Wahlberg and Anthony Hopkins?

    Well yeah, because no star power in the world is going to supersede the reputation of Bay's TF movies anymore.

    This R2-Bee2 solo thing, however, is being touted as "something different" yada yada yada because of the 80's setting, new (read: DIFFERENT) director, etc. So the fact that they're even still moving ahead with it at all despite TLK tanking tells us they (inexplicably) believe it could do well. But casting a ton of never-heard-of's sure isn't going to do much to draw people that might want to see an actor that they, ya know, actually recognize.

    Producer. He's practically the Kevin Feige of Transformers now.

    I think at this point they just need a good story among everything else. I don't care who you cast so long as they can make me believe their emotions onscreen are real, and not have me thinking "who the fuck wrote that line for you?"

    They have a new, small time director and are hiring new, small time actors. I'm actually glad to see them taking risks like this, especially as it indicates they're relying on Bumblebee for name recognition. Now if only I didn't want movie Bumblebee dead... Might help if, for once, he was more than just the mascot of the movie and was an actual character... Would help if he could actually talk or if the film was at least set at a time when he was still dealing with the loss of his voice.

    If Bay is a producer and have same creative controls over the future TF movies, then the outcomes are simple: BB movie will crash at the box office and leaving Paramount in more troubles that they decides to scap the franchise. If Bay is just a producer with no power at all, then BB movie can be decent and redeem a little bit of this franchise.

    Director or not, WHY do they insist on attaching Michael Bay\'s name to everything? FFS
