News today on the wires is that Michael Bay is going to sign on the dotted line to direct the 4th installment into the mega-blockbuster franchise. Even after he had publicly come out and said that doing 3 was enough for him, why quit a good thing? Mattel had announced recently of the intention to make a 4th and 5th edition and possibly shoot them back to back as these films do not come cheap to produce.
Bay will complete his first picture outside of the franchise, a black sports comedy entitled ‘Pain & Gain’, which Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is close to signing on as one of the leads. It is described by imdb as ‘A pair of bodybuilders in Florida get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong.’
