Re: Labeouf Wants 18 Million To Return To Transformers 4

Can't they pay him 18 million to NOT be in it instead?

If he can get the money to waste his time in this crap, more power to him. If he can't, he doesn't have to appear in another stupid blockbuster which he has publicly disavowed. Sounds like a win-win for him.

Re: Labeouf Wants 18 Million To Return To Transformers 4

I like Shia. I think he's a talented performer who adds wit and fun to whatever he's in. If he want's to do another Transformers, I'm good with that. And yeah, he did badmouth these big studio movies, but I'm not that bothered by it. I figured he could use the extra money. It's too early in his career for him to pack it in and rely on his artsy films.

Re: Labeouf Wants 18 Million To Return To Transformers 4

I think the decision will ultimately fall to Michael Bay. I get the impression that he likes Shia, and I think that general audiences have liked him in the Transformers films. So I can see him returning unless the 4th film is going to be a dramatic creative departure from the first three (which, I think was actually rumored before Bay officially signed on to return).

A lot of people say this, but I don't think I'd want to see a movie with just robots. Sounds like some fanboyish thing that people say without thinking it through. You lose a lot without the human element.

That'll never happen. Fanboys might want that, but the casual viewers would not be interested at one big CGI fest.

No, no, no, no, NNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I thought the dude was done with blockbusters?
Patrick Stewart was paid $14 million for ST Nemesis. Now that's a tragedy. Based on the commercial success of Transformers $18 million for a lead would be dirt cheap.

According to what evidence?

This is one of those bullshit beliefs that exist simply because everyone keeps saying it. Until such a movie is actually made, it does have a crappy story, and it does bomb, then that's all that belief is: Utter bullshit.

(Hint: Most animation films have no humans onscreen; it's all "CGI." Yet they rake in the cash left and right. Hell, I can't think of any aside from Roger Rabbit and the Song of the South that did have actual humans in it that were any good.)

But... but... you're forgetting the massive, both-sexes/all-ages crossover smash hit that was the total fanbait film Dredd 3D, whose back-to-back sequels have already been greenlit! It proved that, if you zero in on a small group of hardcore fans and given them exactly what they want, you'll make riches beyond your wildest dreams!

Huh? Que?

OHHHHhhhh....

Take away Patrick Stewart from TNG films and no one would see them.

No one cared that Shia was in Tranformers. People only went for the alien robots and explosions.

I know that was certainly the case for me. I still wouldn't want a full on CGI only movie though.

Integrating the CGI transformers into our everyday environment believably is what made it so cool for me. At least for the first movie.

Ok, maybe the better question would be, what has she been in recently?

They should pay him...anything to prevent some bright spark at Disney deciding he might make a good son of Solo or something...
