Director Michael Bay Says There Will Be Less Robots in 'Transformers 3'

Michael Bay and Megan Fox discuss her bigger role for "Transformers 3"

Michael Bay recently attended a presentation in Hollywood on discussing the sound effects of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." Hero Complex covered the event and published a small quote from Bay at the end about what to expect in "Transformers 3."

"Although the number of robots increased significantly from the first film for the second, the third film won't be as robot-heavy and there will be fewer explosions, a tight-lipped Bay said after the Q+A."

“There will be a nice crescendo ending,” Bay said. “It gets much more into the robot character. The last time you kind of met a few of the robots; this time you’re gonna get a much cooler landscape.”

Apparently having Optimus Prime going solo against multiple Decepticons in a forest, fighting in Egypt on the pyramids and sneaking around the Smithsonian Museum weren't already cool enough. Where does Bay think he's taking this?

I don't think the problem with "Revenge of the Fallen" was that it had too many robots, it was much more the story and the script and crazy location changes. Though I will concede I was ticked off there were so many robots without any kind of...robot development.

Although, if this means we won't see Skids and Mudflap or that humping-bot Wheelie ever again, then I'm all for it.

"Transformers 3" is being written by Ehren Kruger, but I'm sure Bay is working on it, too. Sounds like he's already telling them what to and what not to include in this.

"Transformers 3" is set for summer of 2011.
