Bay talks TF2, F13

Haha -- according to director/demolitionist Michael Bay, us entertainment journalist/fansite types are the "Internet crazies". Okay, not far off the mark, actually. But I digress.

Entertainment Weekly squeezed the carnage craftsman for info on TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN, but came up virtually empty. All he'd admit was: "When we were writing the script, I said to the writers, "I hate sequels that try to make it to the third movie. Pretend like we’re never having a third movie, so let’s go for broke on the second one. I hate those cliffhangers! Let’s just make this movie stand on its own." I really feel this movie is not a forced sequel." You know what that means -- fitting in that much more shit blowin' up!

As for his Platinum Dunes-produced remake of FRIDAY THE 13th, he says it will follow a standard path: "It’s a reconception of the original. We’re introducing a whole group of new kids. What we always try to do is add a little bit of freshness to these movies that were really scary back then and update them for a new audience." But there are also a few surprises in store for Voorhees family fans: "You’re just not going to believe the first 12 minutes! It’s a twist in itself." (SPOILER: Jason is now played by Megan Fox!) Bay also reveals the new 13th will draw plot points from the first two flicks in the original series. Read what else he spilled RIGHT HERE.

Meanwhile, Bay's pouty-lipped, flat-tummied young TRANSFORMERS starlet (and new Jason) Megan Fox would only reveal to Fox News (no relation) that she had to pack on a few pounds for the sequel (Bay don't dig no scrawny chicks) and that it's set a while after the first: "At this point Shia and I have been dating for two years so we're at the bickering stage, like an old married couple." Sweet, more comic relief that was so clearly lacking in the first movie...
Extra Tidbit: Bay was apparently not amused by his faux draft of THE DARK KNIGHT. C'mon, Mikey -- it was funny.
