Honestly I don't care if he cares. The last thing I want in a Transformers movie is a fan directing or producing it. I have never seen a movie adaptation made by a fan that was good.
It's not that I want it to be directed by a fan, but SOMEBODY with a little more respect for what Transformers are besides giant robots that turn into cars. I want to see characters, not just bodies. And I don't want another trashy movie to commemorate the 30th anniversary of this franchise.
Problem is they aren't "trashy," you just didn't like them.
Other problem is, and this is from an honest fan perspective, Transformers is a very shallow franchise. There is frankly not a lot to work with other than one dimensional characters and convoluted, plotless story archs. The films had about the same characterization as any cartoon or comic. Every Transformer except Prime and Megatron is essentially a voice and a copy-paste character archetype with no development. Before you mention Beast Wars that was an anomaly, not the norm.
