Michael Bay hits the fire button and launches Heatseekers

I have to assume that destructicon Michael Bay has his personal army of lingerie-clad henchwomen alert him whenever a new script with an explosive title hits the Hollywood market.

Needless to say, an original action script called HEATSEEKERS caught Bay's attention, and his Platinum Dunes production company grabbed it up for a fat stack.

The script comes from attorney-turned-screenwriter George Mahaffey, and is described as being in the vein of THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS and POINT BREAK. The story "follows a young ex-military pilot who infiltrates a gang of aerial pirates working out of Bangkok and takes part in an elaborate tower heist using powered gliders and parachutes."

Dunes guys Andrew Form and Brad Fuller are producing along with Bay, who will let someone else direct the sky thrills while he makes giant robots wreck stuff.

Extra Tidbit: It's good to see Platinum Dunes getting away from just remakes of classic horror movies... even if their originals so far were THE UNBORN and HORSEMEN.

Michael effin' Bay, dudes!

Michael Bay is awesome, even if he did make a lousy sequel to Transformers. But see, even then, he makes a ridiculously shitty movie LOOK good. And say what you will, but Transformers LOOKED amazing! Now I'm pretty sure this gig is going to have its fair share of ridiculousness, but I'm a sucker for pretty scenes, especially on Blu-Ray these days, so I'm stoked to say the least!

The first Transformers was garbage as well. It was the same horrible acting, the same priority of explosions in front of an actual story. It's just as bad as the sequel.

Okay, any time you compare a movie to Point Break AND The Fast and the Furious, you automatically spoil the entire plot. So, that aside, I'm not opposed to seeing what action set-pieces Bay has in mind for this one.

Say what you will about Michael Bay, but he is one of the only directors who makes off the wall Action movies anymore. A michael bay is going to have some laughs, even if its from ridiculousness. Bad Boys 2 and Transformers are a couple of favorites. So bring it on.
