Filmmaker Michael Bay May Direct New Action Pic
Paramount Pictures has picked a new action project, currently unnamed, for Michael Bay to possibly direct.
Little information is available about the project, but a report in The Hollywood Reporter describes it as a “real science adventure thriller with an undersea component.”
Bay will produce the project alongside partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, his partners from his production company Platinum Dunes.
Tom Wheeler and Robbie Thomson are set to write the screenplay.
Wheeler is also the screenwriter of B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations, which involves a ghost, desperately in need of better haunting skills, is forced to return to ghost school. Bill Murray, Seth Rogan and Rishida Jones are set to lend their voices to that pic, which is set to debut June 2015.
Wheeler and Thomson previously collaborated on The Cape – a series about a cop who becomes a superhero known as The Cape. Wheeler created the show, which aired on NBC in 2011.
Bay should need no introduction to fans of the action-movie genre. He has directed three Transformers movie, and is currently in post-production on the fourth installment of the franchise. His other directorial titles include Pain and Gain, The Rock, Pearl Harbor and Armageddon.
