    Elephant poaching? With his mainstream appeal, I hope he does get a chance to make this movie. For a director of such notoriety, whether you love or hate him, bringing awareness to such a dire situation would vastly help the WWF and conservation groups around the world protecting these animals.

    We've been through this song and dance before. He says shit like this until someone comes into his office and drops a gigantic sack of cash on his desk, then he all of a sudden conveniently has a change of heart and comes back to direct.

    I don't believe this for one second.

    Can agree with this.

    Please a new director. The last one was so bad, that me and my friends would rather go to a dentist appointment.

    That's a good point. Don't underestimate the power of money. Guess it won't be official until he announces it via his website, if he ever does.

    Say what you want about Bay, but I dont think he is motivated by money anymore. He is set for life no matter what and I genuinely buy and understand why he came back after DOTM, afterall, Transformers is his baby and he wanted to spent abit more time with it before letting it go.

    To be honest I could not care less either way, for me the film franchise is past saving. Unless it's rebooted I shan't be watching any of them regardless of who is in the directors chair. Plus as Mechfire said, Bay has said similar things before and done a U-turn as soon a a big fat cheque lands on his desk.

    If Bay truely is going to pass it on to a new Director, I honestly think its time for a fresh reboot and for paramount and Hasbro to really think of a true cinamatic TFs Univers much like Marvel is doing. I really think stand alone TFs movies would work too. I'd like to see Bee get a stand alone movie with him having maybe 2 other Bots at his side much like Captain Amarica had with Falcon and Black Widow. Give OP a stand alone with maybe Ratchet and a few others in that one, do a stand alone based on the Protectobots and so on. And when a grand threat come to threaten Earth, they all team up like the Avengers on marvel.

    This IMO would be a good way to not over saturate every movie with to many TFs, while keeping with the human element and characterization for the TFs. But when they really want to blow the roof off, then have that one grand movie where everyone needs to come together, Bots and Cons and have at it. Then go into their version of phase 2 for the TFs Univers. And move on to part 2 movies for existing characters and new movies for new characters being introduced in phase 2.

    Marvel really is doing it right in their "phases" for movies, and IMO Paramount/Hasbro could win from following in this manor.
