    With Michael Bay:bay  doing "Pain and Gain" next year(If there is one, Mayan Prophecy and all that.) and him being asked to produce Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which is supposedly coming out this year, how is he going start working on Transformers 4. I now this thread may seem out of the norm, but the Dark of the Moon section felt lie the most appropriate place to put it. I can imagine him being busy but not that busy. Thanks for reading, please feel free to leave your thoughts on the subject.

    Little offtopic here, but while it seems to be a shame to cover up that pic, if you moved the caption and logo onto the actual art you might be pretty much the right size for a sig. If not, crop the sides and bottom a little.


    As for Bay, as many have mentioned, he's only doing producing on a lot of films (for example, i think he was producing a couple films during ROTF and DOTM, such as the Friday the 13th remake), but for a director to make 2 films in a year, or even 3, isn't unheard of, depending on how long shooting takes. It really depends on the director and how they like to work.

    I know but if "Pain and Gain" is supposedly $20 million and Transformers 4 is probably going to have a way bigger budget than TF3. Those to things alone are going to take a lot of work. Judging by the time between his larger films he really likes to take his time. Such as his usual two-year span between movies after 1998's Armageddon. Or maybe I'm just bringing up an invalid thread, because as you said "he was producing a couple films during ROTF and DOTM, such as the Friday the 13th remake." But anyways, thanks for posting!

    The 2k7 movie struck just the right tone for me, and Karai's warning at the end is begging for a sequel. I really wish they'd follow up on that.

    I know, and unlike a lot of CGI animated films it felt real in a sense.

    Well, budget doesn't necessarily translate to work... If there's a lot of effects or props or sets to be made (period pieces and "true-stories" can be really expensive because you have to find or reproduce items from the era like cars, furniture, architecture, etc. etc.), or a high-paid or large cast, it can drive up the cost pretty quickly.

    The budget correlates with how "big" a movie will be in terms of it being an investment for its financiers. They're going to want to make money on it, and the more they have invested, the more it'll likely be marketed so as to maximize the chances of making money. In the grand scheme of movies though, 20 million is absolutely nothing (DOTM had a budget in the hundreds of millions), hell, get a couple big stars and that's half that budget right there. It could be this is something of a labor of love for Bay, and he's putting up his own money (or money of close financial associates), which would imply it'll be his focus, and not TF4, but even then there's PLENTY of time for him to get TF4 done, given he's got over 2 years to work on it. But at the same time, it could also be a much simpler movie, and one that doesn't take nearly the same amount of work to create as a giant blockbuster like TF.

    Let me guess. Most of them won't accept anything that isn't the awful* 1987 cartoon, and the remainder won't accept anything that isn't the 1984 Mirage comic series, right? Sorry, but there's no saving them.


    *Calm down, yes I know it wasn't actually awful**




    **except for most of seasons 3-7, which is the vast majority of the series.
