I have some good news and some bad news for Michael Bay. Paramount‘s indentured servant has fought for years to get his dream project, Pain and Gain, made. In order to do so, he had to make a string of films starring big, noisy robots. That hard work has paid off and Pain and Gain is officially a go. However, just when he thought he was out, they drag him back in. The price of this dream project? You know it. More big, noisy robots.
This won’t be another sequel per se. It looks like plans will involve bringing in a new cast of underwear models to team with the robots to save Earth. “I think we really are going to do a reboot there,” Di Bonaventura said. “[But] what that’s going to be, we don’t even know yet…. We’ve got to get a story first.”
Ha. Seeing as the first three earned $2.6 billion without a story, I’m thinking that’s not a real priority.
