In a surprise move, it seems Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen director Michael Bay has decided to leave the franchise and not do a third movie.
It does seem weird that Michael would quit only months after saying he would simply be taking a break before doing Transformers 3 in 2012. It’s also interesting that he mentions it a day before the first public opening in the UK.
The most shocking thing about his interview with wenn.com (via IMDB) is that he will be doing something different: “I need to do something totally divergent, something without any explosions.” He also goes on to comment on reviewers, “It’s easy to go shoot an art movie in a winery in the South of France. But people have no idea how hard it is to create something like Transformers. They (the critics) review me before they’ve even seen the movie.” Don’t worry Michael, we liked it.
So fans, think back to 2006 and start deciding who you would love to direct the next installment of Transformers.
However, I dont see anything about this on his site or forums.
IMO its too early to tell but there will be a 3rd film but will Bay do it maybe? I think hes just too over worked and too much big robots. Give him time and he should come back. Only he and maybe Stephen can pull it off, other than that part 3 will suck.

Michael Bay is a very gifted LIAR.. Didn't he say the same thing after the first Transformers on how their wasn't going to be another Transforners film and that he was not gonna be involved.. This is just great marketing for what may possibly be the biggest film of the summer
Haha, that would be a rather strange change of scene, especially if he starts adding his cliche touches to it...and optimus prime starts singing about the decepticon's and how they're a threat to the universe hahaha
Abrams would be pretty good, but you can only hope that he doesn't include time travel and alternate universes...
