    Eh. I didn't think Leister had much a grip on what the production cast anyway. Even with $400mil, that sounded like a number "a guy who knows a guy" would come up with. That's a shitload of coin.

    Fair do's, though it made me assume he'd said something much worse.

    Wow! Calling "Terry Tate" a moron might be a bad move. First person with a video of Bay getting DEMOLISHED by an office linebacker hit gets my entire TF collection. :D

    $400mill huh.....
    Hmmm perhaps if Hollywood stop being so cheap and gave Bay a $20 gift card to Denny's on top of that figure, then these films would've had a decent plot, some character development......recognizable Transformers maybe...

    But hey if Bay only wants more cow bell then that'll just have to do!

    I love that it seems when he gets annoyed grammar just goes flying out of the window. So cute. Also - Hardcore Eddie ain't coming back for Transformers 4. :D

    Actors need to learn to keep their mouths shut... especially when Bay's in charge. Bet Megan Fox wishes she had :p 

    Seriously though, very unprofessional on the part of Leister and Mike.

    edit: Is that Bay's grammar going out the window, or TFW's? I wouldn't be too surprised if it was the latter.

    I honestly don't care what the budget is just as long as the movie is good with plenty of robot action.

    That sounds more like it.

    Guess Hardcore Eddie might want to change his name to splat or roadkill at this rate then.
