The Wrap reports
that Paramount Pictures
has extended their deal with Director Michael Bay
for another three years. “With an ever-growing, worldwide fan base, Michael is truly one of the most inspired and beloved filmmakers of our time,” said Brad Grey, Paramount chairman and CEO. “We take great pride in the fact that Michael is part of the Paramount family and we look forward to growing our productive and successful partnership.”
This news should come as no surprise since his latest movie Transformers: Age Of Extinction
is on the verge of breaking US$ 1 Billion mark on the Worldwide Box-Office. “Over the years I have become part of the Paramount family,” Bay enthused in a press release. “There is a synergy there that feels different than any other place in Hollywood. From Brad Grey and Rob Moore, where my relationship goes back more than a decade, to my very good friend Adam Goodman, and to Philippe Dauman, who has put so much trust in me, and with the powerful marketing of Josh Greenstein and Megan Colligan, Paramount makes for a very comfortable place to work.”
However, whether he will return to the Transformers Director Chair is still yet to be determined.
The news post image is from the Director himself. This is how he introduced his new pet cat; Fifi to the world. Coming from Mr. Bay, we wouldn't have expected anything else.
