After months of speculation as to what Michael Bay‘s next project was going to be, he has announced via his official message board that his next project is in fact Transformers 3:

Well its official: We have a great Transformers 3 story. The release date is now July 1st 2011. Not 2012.

Today is Day One. This morning started with an ILM meeting for five hours in San Francisco. Currently I’m flying with writer Ehren Kruger to Rhode Island to talk to Hasbro about new characters.

P.S. Megan Fox, welcome back. I promise no alien robots will harm you in any way during the production of this motion picture. Please consult your Physician when working under my direction because some side effects can occur, such as mild dizziness, intense nausea, suicidal tendencies, depression, minor chest hair growth, random internal hemorrhaging and inability to sleep. As some directors may be hazardous to your health, please consult your Doctor to determine if this is right for you.

Pain and Gain is right after shooting of Trans 3.


Of course I am happy that the speculation can finally end on whether or not Bay is going to return but I was hoping for Pain & Gain before Transformers. At least Bay is finally saying himself that it will happen. It also looks like Bay wanted to get one more shot at Megan Fox in before production but after everything she had done can you blame him? The astute reader will also notice there is no mention of Bad Boys 3 in this post so that probably means that the story is still in the very early stages.

Are you looking forward to Transformers 3?
