There was a doubt about the release date of Transformers 3: Michael Bay was willing to return but wanted to take a break first, and Transformers 3 would have been pushed back to 2012 instead of 2011 as a result. But fear no more: it looks like he has bent under the pressure of Paramount (or rather he’s been promised a really fat paycheck) and that the movie Transformers 3 will hit theaters on July 1, 2011 as previously announced by Paramount.
Michael Bay said indeed on his site that:
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.”
He also jokes about the recent controversy fueled by Megan Fox who compared him to a dictator:
Without much surprise, both Shia Labeouf and Megan Fox will be back for Transformers 3 then. And Director Michael Bay will make sure that this new Transformers movie will be as explosive as the previous ones.
We don’t know yet the plot of Transformers 3, but the mini-cons are likely to show up because Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura mentioned them not so long ago.
Don’t forget the release date of Transformers 3: it’s on July 1, 2011!
