UK, June 18, 2009 - With Transformers mania currently gripping the globe, we have some shocking news for fans of the franchise -- Michael Bay has had enough.
According to a report on WENN.com (reported on IMDB), Bay feels that with forthcoming sequel Revenge of the Fallen, he has taken the series as far as he can.
"After the three-and-a-half years I've spent making these movies, I feel like I've had enough of the Transformers world," he explained. "I need to do something totally divergent, something without any explosions."
And in a sly dig at journalists, Bay added: "It's easy to go shoot an art movie in a winery in the South of France. But people have no idea how hard it is to create something like Transformers. They [the critics] review me before they've even seen the movie."
Well IGN UK waited till we'd seen the film before passing judgement, and gave Revenge of the Fallen a solid three star review.
