Michael Bay Talks About the DGA, WGA Strike, And The Future Of Transformers

Posted on Jan 18, 2008

From Variety:

Director Michael Bay said he was cautiously optimistic, but that he has been preparing to get a “Transformers” sequel into production, strike or no strike.”We knew from early on that the writers strike could get ugly, and this has got to bring a little sanity to the situation,” Bay said. “I can’t do the movie without my writers, but I have been prepping. I’m not in the guild, but I’ve been writing every day. This strike (is) insane, and a director’s responsibility is to the 50 crew members who depend on you for their livelihoods. We’ve got battle plans ready for the possibility of an actors strike. Somehow, you’ve got to keep the ball rolling.”
