Michael Bay Interview with South China Morning Post

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
The South China Morning Post newspaper posted an interview with film director Michael Bay about his filming experience in Hong Kong, including the recently reported accidents and protests on set. He claims that there was a lot of embarrassment, especially on behalf of the local crew and extras, that he would love to return to Hong Kong soon for more shooting. Bay and the filming crew are moving away from the area, headed for Wulong in Chongqing and on the Great Wall in Beijing. You can read the whole interview, which includes two videos, here.

Two alleged blackmail attempts – including an attack by a man wielding something that just night have been a Decepticon – and an explosion scene at government headquarters that almost clashed with mass protests over the awarding of television licences.

Experiences like these helped make up an eventful 10 days for Hollywood director Michael Bay who has just finished filming the Hong Kong sequences for the latest Transformers movie, Age of Extinction.

But Bay said overall it was a pleasant experience and he plans to return for at least one film or possibly more.

Return for one more film...

Am I the only one reading this as "return to China" and not "return to Transformers"?
It finally happened. The Chicago Cubs won the World Series. Yes, I cried.

Nope, that's exactly how I took that also.
Part of it may have just been cautious optimism on my part in that I am really hoping he doesn't take this franchise anywhere else out of country and instead actually invests time and money into a decent, sensible script for the last 2 films instead of pissing it away on exotic locales and over the top CGI and explosions to distract us from the fact that he's beating the ever-loving hell out of this cash cow.

Did I say "cautious optimism"? I'm sorry... I meant momentary delusion.

To be honest, I he is gonna to return in Transfomers 5, I won't be suprised at all. You know, money is rarely a bad thing.

I think Bay should quit Transformers and start making Diablo Movies, this universe seems to fit him perfectly. Lot of villians to kill? Check! Humans are special? Check! Lot of Explosions? Check? Easy way to bringin character's back to life? Check! Maybe this is universe that could use without ruining it.
