SAN DIEGO “" With “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” a resounding box office success this year, it is only natural for conversation with one of the film’s stars, Tyrese Gibson, to shift to discussion of a third film.
“Absolutely” said Gibson when asked what was happening with a “Transformers 3.” “It’s in motion.”
In interviews following “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” director Michael Bay made remarks saying he wanted a break from big blockbusters, saying that he was in the process of working on a dark comedy. Gibson reassured fans that Bay would indeed be getting behind another “Transformers” film.
“Michael Bay, he definitely needs to take a break from (“Transformers”), understandably so, but this is the movie — the biggest movie he’s ever directed in his life” said Gibson. “And so, he can keep producing all of these other projects, but he is officially the king of geeks.”
Gibson’s role in “Revenge of the Fallen” was markedly smaller than his role in the first “Transformers” film, a fact he claimed he was sure was going to be remedied for a third installment.
“I will absolutely be back” he said, “and my part is going to be bumped up.”
