Despite denials and calls for more cash, Michael Bay is apparently set to direct Transformers 4: Asshole Of The Earth (working title) after all. If that has got your saliva glands pulsing than wait for this…he’ll ‘probably’ direct number 5 as well, tentatively titled Transformers 5: Crash, Bang, It’S A Decepticon – In Your Ass. This news will come as a surprise to no-one and be welcomed by even less but it was nice of ginger goto bodyguard/military man Glenn Morshower to let us in on the secret:
“After I did the opening ceremonies for the ride, Steven Spielberg walked up to me and chatted and said ‘You know we’ve got you set to do the fourth one and probably the fifth one on the heels of that,” said Morshower. “So, I guess in December we are on our way to making 4 and 5.“

It looks like Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg are teaming up for more Transformers. At the Con X Kc in Kansas City, Missouri, actor Glenn Morshower, who appeared in all three films and provides an introduction to the Transformers 3D ride at Universal Studios, said he was informed that Spielberg and Bay were at work on not just a 4th Transformers movie, but a 5th one as well.
“After I did the opening ceremonies for the ride, Steven Spielberg walked up to me and chatted and said ‘You know we’ve got you set to do the fourth one and probably the fifth one on the heels of that,” he told Examiner. “So, I guess in December we are on our way to making 4 and 5.”

A couple of weeks ago, Hasbro president Brian Goldner took to the stage at the Ubs Best of Americas conference where he promised that the next installment of the Transformers movie franchise would feature "a new cast of [robot] characters." The move - designed to help boost sales for the toy giant - naturally sparked speculation that Optimus Prime could be absent from the next movie. However, director Michael Bay has now moved to reassure fans by confirming to The Huffington Post that fan favourite Peter Cullen will "of course" return to voice the heroic Autobot leader in Transformers 4, as well as discussing his reasons for extending his stay on the blockbuster franchise...
"I thought I was done [with Transformers]. Then the ride came out [at Universal Studios Hollywood] and the two-and-a-half-hour lines. And then you're thinking, Oh my God, someone's going to take this over. And you start doing a lot of soul-searching. Like, Ok, »
Michael Bay was planning to leave the "Transformers" franchise after the third film, but decided to return for a fourth installment after he saw the long lines for the new "Transformers 3D" ride at Universal Studios. Now, during Con X Kc in Kansas City, actor Glenn Morshower (pictured), who appeared in all three films and does the introduction for the ride, said Bay will not only return for "Transformers 4," but also probably "Transformers 5." "After I did the opening ceremonies for the ride, Steven Spielberg walked up to me and chatted and said 'You know we've got you set to do the fourth one and probably the fifth one on the heels of that," said Morshower. "So, I guess in December we are on our way to making 4 and 5." This explains why during his last interview, Bay said that "Transformers 4" is "probably" his last installment. Clearly even he wasn't convinced. »
When Michael Bay signed on to direct Transformers 4 for Paramount Pictures earlier this year, he stated that this would be his final installment in the highly successful series. However, he also said the same thing when he helmed Dark Of The Moon last year, leading to some thinking that Bay will be back for a fifth film in the franchise. And if these words from actor Glenn Morshower - who plays 'General Morshower' in the Transformers trilogy - are anything to go by, it looks like Bay isn't done with the Transformers movies yet. Last weekend at the Con X Kc in Kansas City, Missouri, Morshower (who also provides the introduction to Universal Studios' Transformers 3D ride) discussed the continuation of the series, as well as whether or not he'll be back for future installments. "After I did the opening ceremonies for the ride, [executive producer] Steven Spielberg walked »
Dada Films and its sister company, Required Viewing, have acquired U.S. theatrical distribution rights to Sarah Megan Thomas' "Backwards." The film opens on September 21, 2012. Thomas wrote, produced, and stars in the film, which also features Glenn Morshower ("24", "Transformers") and James Van Der Beek ("Dawson's Creek"). The film's subject matter is especially relevant with this year's Summer Olympics, telling the story of an Olympic hopeful, Abi (played by Thomas), who moves back home and becomes a coach after being named an alternate on the Olympic rowing team. Thomas states that her motivation for writing "Backwards", "was to create an inspirational film that shows there are lots of ways to win, even if we don't always achieve our immediate goal." While never an Olympian, Thomas was a competitive rower and athlete in her teens and twenties. Mj Peckos from Dada Films and Steven Raphael »

Written by: Tanner Beard
The subtitle of The Legend of Hell’s Gate is “An American Conspiracy.” A conspiracy usually involves a large cast of characters and, in his feature debut, writer-director-star Tanner Beard draws upon local legends and has cast a legion of mid-level character actors to spin a small-scale oater epic with a proverbial cast of thousands. Beard should be commended for his ambition, but his reach far too often exceeds his grasp.
In 1876 West Texas, former thief turned railworker Jimmy (Beard) arrives in Dallas seeking his fortune and a cure for his toothache, which leads to an encounter with Doc Holliday (Jamie Thomas King) and his befriending of a local prostitute named Katherine (Jenna Dewan of The Playboy Club). Meanwhile, a posse of Confederate veterans turned »

"Hawaii Five-0" dealt rather deftly with Alex O'Loughlin's unplanned absence for a couple of episodes, and we get to see the reults of McGarrett's on-screen departure play out Monday (May 7) in the season's penultimate episode. Wo Fat stories seem to raise the show's game a little, and "Ua Hopu" followed that pattern.
McGarrett gets half of what he wanted in Japan, bringing Wo Fat back to Hawaii in handcuffs in what was a suspiciously easy collar. The horrifying mess in the bathroom of Wo Fat's Osaka crash pad, it turns out, is what's left of Yakuza elder Hiro Noshimuri, which is bad news for both is son Adam and for Kono. Why Kono? Because Adam is the secret new boyfriend she's been calling all the time these past couple weeks. Adam is trying to take his family's interests to the legitimate side of the ledger, but he's also bound to avenge his father's death. »
