Ever since Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Michael Bay has gone on record to say that he was done with the franchise, only to announce he’s making another one, and then announce he’s quitting again.
In an interview with Collider, Bay once again says this Transformers will be his last, but when called out on his backpedaling he answers, “Yeah, I know, right? But it’s like, that’s all they want to do is franchises. That’s all they want to do. I had to beg to get to make [13 Hours]”
What do you make of Bay’s comments? Are Hollywood too reliant on franchises?
13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi is set for release on January 15th in the States and on January 29th in the UK, with a cast that includes James Badge Dale, John Krasinski, Max Martini, Toby Stephens, Pablo Schreiber, David Denman, Dominic Fumusa, Freddie Stroma, David Costabile and Alexia Barlier.
