Bay Prepares to Fake Out Transformers Fanboys

Michael Bay in disguise.

Michael Bay
went through the wringer with the fanboys on
Transformers
.
He addressed every concern — early designs, scripts, remaining faithful to the
source material — and delivered a movie that won over most audiences, grossing
nearly $320 million in America alone. But with Transformers 2 in
development, Bay isn’t taking any more lip service.

"One thing I do know is I know how to screw them up more,"
said Bay. "We’re going to leak a lot of false information all over the place. I
now know their game. They’re going to get a lot of script treatments that they
think are going to be the script. They will never see the script. We’ve got
scripts and treatments written up that we’re going to leak. No one’s going to
know."

Scoopers who currently think they’re sitting on a hot one,
here’s a head’s up. "There’s one out that’s fake right now. There are going to
be many others."

In the days leading up to the writer’s strike, Bay was in
the trenches working on the sequel script. "Every day now. I’m excited about it.
We’ve got
Alex
[Kurtzman]
and
Bob [Orci],
the original writers, and we’ve got
Ehren Kruger
(Blood and
Chocolate
, The Ring),
who’s a new writer coming in. We have three very good writers."
