If you could pick any mix what would It be?
Me and me. Just kidding( we'd be better off with bay and Krueger)
Seriously though joss whedon or steven melching as the writer, and Guillermo del toro as director
Not sure about director, but the writers should be Chris Mowry and John Barber. Look how they improved the movieverse.
Joseph Kosinski, with a script by David S. Goyer, and Simon Furman as a creative consultant.
me, myself, and irene
Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, Layer Cake, Stardust, X-Men First Class) Also talented writer.
Matt Reeves (Dawn of the Apes, Cloverfield) Long time JJ Abrams collaborator
Kenneth Branagh (Thor and other projects) Good story teller
Joe Carnahan (The Grey, Narc, The Blacklist)
Phil Lord & Chris Miller (Jump Street, the Lego Movie)
Guillermo Del Toro is probably the best visual storyteller in the filmmaking scene these days (Did Pacific Rim even need words?), so him times a million. I'd love to see the directions he'd take with the cinematography and design aesthetic.
For a writer? Shane Black. Shane Black for EVERYTHING.
I think if they're going for a really fun, doesn't-take-itself-seriously film, Phil Lord and Chris Miller could do a great job. I love their work.
The guys who directed Winter Soldier would do an awesome job, I think.
Ideally the writers would be Nick Roche and James Roberts.
I wonder if he'll portray the Quintessons as a group of washed up British actors who was were merely standing in for the real Creators.
Yes the Quintessons name should be Trevor.
Only if the real Creators were an intelligent meta-commentary on the Quintessons.
Anyone for writing that isn't Kruger or the other folks that have written for the movies. Really... the plots and bad humor are why critics pan the films.
As for directing... if Bay would be OK with it... have him Co-Direct with Spielberg... or someone else, but considering he's Exec Producer... easy enough to have him helm the project.
Gist of it is that you let Bay work his action magic when it's appropriate... let Spielberg (or someone else) deal with the human and more non-action scenes.
Bay's action sequences (and the CGI) are WHY the movies are huge sellers. The films have plenty of spots where you can fix things... but if there's one element that *NEEDS* to stay... It's Bay's sequences.
James Mangold should write and direct. He wrote and directed Walk The Line, for which Reese Witherspoon won a Best Actress Oscar. He co-wrote and directed Girl, Interrupted, for which Angelina Jolie won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar. He directed The Wolverine and 3:10 To Yuma.
James Wan should write and direct. He wrote and directed Saw. He also directed The Conjuring and is currently directing Fast & Furious 7. He was born in 1977, and so there stands a possibility that he's an original fan.
Matt Reeves all the way.
bay & hayter
You know what?
I'd see it.
Other odd choices, whose versions I'd see? Quentin Tarantino. Kevin Smith. Wes Anderson. Neill Blomkamp. Joel Schuemaker. Tim Burton (I said I'd see it, not that I'd like it).
I generally support anyone who isn't very well known. I like newcomer directors. Especially Marc Webb. While I was definitely disappointed in TASM 2, it was more because of the Sony marketing team as opposed to him. I would like to direct a trilogy of Transformers movies one day though. Like, I will not allow myself to die until I get the chance. I could care less if Paramount (or whoever owns the rights to the franchise in 20 years) pays me a penny to work on the film (and by that I really do mean just enough to pay the bills and buy the essentials) I just want to do it.
