Michael Bay talks “Bad Boys 3,” life after “Transformers”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Michael Bay and Shia LaBeouf have made it clear on the publicity trail for “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” that this, in their opinion, is the series’ best … and would be the franchise’s last.

So what are they moving on to next?

When it comes to LaBeouf, he wrapped filming on John Hillcoat’s “The Wettest County in the World,” an adaptation of Matt Bondurant’s period novel about Depression-era bootleggers. He’ll co-star with Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska … a great cast.

Bay is a different story. He has only done “Transformers” films since 2007, having filmed three installments back-to-back. His last original film was 2005’s “The Island,” and those who support Bay (they’re out there) want to see him try his hand at something different, and possibly smaller.

Bay is prepping “Pain & Gain,” which he tells MTV is a dark comedy in the vein of “Pulp Fiction.” He also says that the film will maintain a budget of somewhere around $20 million … which wouldn’t cover catering on a “Transformers” film.

But he isn’t completely finished with sequels. When asked about doing “Bad Boys 3” with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, Bay said, “We talk about it. It’s hard to get our schedules together but it’s great working with those guys.”

Not exactly a confirmation, but he didn’t shoot it down, either.
