With “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” a resounding box office success, it is only natural for conversation with one of the film’s stars, Tyrese Gibson, to shift to discussion of a third film.
“Absolutely” said Gibson when asked what was happening with “Transformers 3.”
In interviews following “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” director Michael Bay made remarks saying he wanted a break from big blockbusters, saying that he was in the process of working on a dark comedy.
“Michael Bay, he definitely needs to take a break from (“Transformers”), understandably so, but this is the movie — the biggest movie he’s ever directed in his life” said Gibson. “And so, he can keep producing all of these other projects, but he is officially the king of geeks.”
Gibson’s role in “Revenge of the Fallen” was markedly smaller than his role in the first “Transformers” film, a fact he claimed he was sure was going to be remedied for a third installment.
“I will absolutely be back” he said, “and my part is going to be bumped up.”
Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon hits cinemas this summer it will be without star Megan Fox. Fox left the successful Transformers franchise before filming began on the third installment. At the time, Fox said it was her decision not to return to the part that made her a star. But according to a recent interview with Michael Bay, Fox was fired after publicly likening him to Hitler. In a 2009 interview Fox said of Bay, “He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he’s so awkward, so hopelessly awkward. He has no social skills at all. And it’s endearing to watch him.” Bay told GQ magazine, “You know the Hitler thing. Steven (Spielberg) said, fire her right now.” Bay adds, “I wasn’t hurt, because I know that’s just Megan. Megan loves to get a response, and she does it in kind of the wrong way. I’m sorry, Megan. I’m sorry I made you work twelve hours. I’m sorry that I’m making you show up on time. Movies are not always warm and fuzzy.” Fox was replaced by British supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.- Thanks to GQ for the info !!-GamerBlogTv
