Plus, Bay is in talks to direct a Lobo film for DC.
I've been saying this for years - there's a small handful of comic book characters that Bay's style would fit, and Lobo is at the top of the list. A muscle-bound, sweat-glistening, cussing, cigar-smoking, testosterone-riddled motorcycle thug racing through a dusty post-apocalyptic environment, shooting bounties and banging alien chicks? Yes.
Robopocalypse is bound to be an ILM show with Bay directing & Spielberg producing!
God, Spielberg tried to get that made years ago. I don't know if ILM did some development on it back then but he shelved it years ago and turned to....I think it was War Horse and Lincoln. That's how long ago it was.
Interesting Bay picks up ANOTHER robot film.
I'm really interested in how Bay's career goes post-Transformers, but I'd be surprised if he actually winds up directing Robopocalypse. He's kind of getting into that del Toro territory (del Toro-tory?) of being attached to a dozen projects and only actually having a fraction of them come to fruition.
I mean, don't get me wrong. A Bay-directed, Spielberg-produced, ILM created Robopocalypse movie? I'm there opening day. Plus, it'd be cool if there were shades of Transformers satire thrown into it.
