Michael Bay: I’m Done with “Transformers” & Handing It Off to Another Director

Posted Tuesday August 12, 2014 5:03 PM GMT

He’s made some of the hottest blockbuster films of the past couple of decades, and now Michael Bay is ready to move on from his work on the “Transformers” franchise.

The “Pearl Harbor” stud told USA today, “There’s a lot that’s unexplored, but that’s for the next director to figure out. They’re hard movies to do and it takes every day for two years. They’re fun, but they’re hard.”

Furthermore, "There's kind of a new chapter, a new direction in movies I want to make. I have a lot of stories to tell. And it's about flexing new muscles."

Among Bay’s upcoming projects is a documentary about the tragic elephant poaching industry, and there’s no tell where he’ll go from there.
