Transformers 2 is all but guaranteed to be a massive hit, so what about Transformers 3? If it happens, it’ll happen without director Michael Bay.

WENN claims he told them that he’s done with the giant transforming robot business. In fact, they say he told them he’s “had enough” of big-budget blockbusters. That’s right, they say even Michael Bay is sick of Michael Bay.

It’s hard to believe, but it seems he’s tired of explosions. Says Bay, “After the three and a half years I've spent making these movies, I feel like I've had enough of the Transformers world. I need to do something totally divergent, something without any explosions." If a third Transformers movie happens, it’ll have to happen without Hollywood’s most successful popcorn director.

So if he’s ditching big explosions and big-budget blockbuster, does that mean he’s making art films? Unlikely. The barely bearded director explains, “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.” Take that, Alexander Payne.

UPDATE! It seems WENN grossly misrepresented what Michael Bay was trying to say. Bay has responded on his site ShootForTheEdit and says "Love press how they spin. Never said it - just wanted a vacation is more to the point." That makes a lot more sense.
