Michael Bay Tight Lipped About Transformers 2

In a recent phone interview with Entertainment Weekly, Michael Bay, director of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, wasn't giving very many details about the upcoming flick. The interview took place during a break on the set of the sequel which was described as a "remote air force base" at an "undisclosed location".

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY asked, "What can you tell us about Transformers 2? Or, better yet, what will you tell us?"

MICHAEL BAY said, "When we were writing the script, I said to the writers, 'I hate sequels that try to make it to the third movie. Pretend like we’re never having a third movie, so let’s go for broke on the second one. I hate those cliffhangers! Let’s just make this movie stand on its own.' I really feel this movie is not a forced sequel. I think the script is really good, and I think it’s got a lot of new stuff in it. There are a lot of rumors out there, but we’ve released a lot of fake stuff. We’ve done a really good job of keeping things secret."

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY asked, "Can you give us a hint of something that is true then?"

Bay just laughs and says, "No."

"C'mon, anything?"

Bay responds, "There are some great, new robots that are really inventive."

Bay goes on to talk about his upcoming remake of Friday the 13th and his alleged rejection of the Dark Knight script.
