Michael Bay detonates Chicago in Transformers 3 set video, also produces alien movie

07.27.2010

Want to know what Michael Bay is up to on the set of TRANSFORMERS 3? It involves Bumblebee, a car covered with machineguns, a drawbridge, a golf cart and, as expected, explosions. Tyrese, Josh Duhamel and Shia LaBeouf also make appearances to gladhand fans. Check it below.

Meanwhile, the maestro of mayhem is also producing a new extraterrestrial-themed movie known only as "Confidential Alien Project", according to Deadline. In contrast to the $200+ million he'll likely spend on the latest Autobot-Decepticon-human clash, this one will only run around $12 million.

The Paramount movie, described only as having a CLOVERFIELD and PARANORMAL ACTIVITY vibe, will be directed Bobby Glickert, who won over the studio with a pitch and two-minute teaser (although previously working on TRANSFORMERS probably didn't hurt). Platinum Dunes guys Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are also producing. Hey, whatever keeps them away from more cruddy horror remakes.

 

Extra Tidbit: TRANSFORMERS fans, should I know what that gun-car is supposed to be?

I'm so glad to see that there are people who likes transformers just like me. If you ever read any of my comments on here before then you would know that i'm not one to hide my opinion no matter how much hype or hate there is surrounding a film. But I have to admit I was beginning to feel like a defeated man trying to battle all the hate there is for this franchise.

did anyone notice that shia only got the kid in the picture he took.. shia wasnt even it it.. check it out 2:31 lol.. aside for that, i thought the second film sucked ass story wise but i'll always be down for a transformers flick regardless.. more robots, less stupid ass parents.. thats all.

Fan interaction...

is always crucial when making anything. It shows that you have some heart, and you are there for the people.

It must take FOREVER to shoot one of his films. Every scene has a stunt.

Almost punched my monitor

Wtf, I read that as "Produces Alien movie" as in the Ridley Scott movies coming up.

So glad it was a misleading lead in. Also, I don't really care for TF3. 2 movies down and I am very unimpressed.

They are filming this here in central florida this fall, and i'm hoping to get on board as a crew member. I hope it's as fun as this video. I'm pretty stoked.

i have a feeling

that this movie will be the best in the trilogy. Bay has learned from his mistakes and he knows what to do to fix them. i hope this movie kicks-ass. and count me in for the IMAX 3D midnight premiere!

Judging by the energy you'd think they were making a good movie.

judging by your lack of energy, it is not surprising your post sucks.

It's kewl, this Terminal guy, generally has nothing special to say from what I've read. Although, I do give him props for having a pretty firm opinion.

Count me in

I'm no fan of Michael Bay but when it comes to action, Bay can do no wrong. I'm so there on the opening day.

Seems Bay didn't want to come late to the next alien movies season. We have Super 8, Oren Peli's Area 51, Cowboys & Aliens, so Bay wants in. I don't know you, but I have this feeling old-fashioned alien movies will become a trend next year and someone at paramount just told this guy...
