"...Jackson, Cameron, and Bay are part of a very small, very elite group of directors who can get just about any movie green-lit, and yet they're devoting so much of their time to more of the same. Wouldn't we rather see what new creative endeavors they could come up with, while they still have the wherewithal and studio support to do it?"
Interesting article and a good question. Speaking for myself, I'll be in the theater when "Transformers 4" hits...but I really think that after that movie Michael should move on with something different. Don't want to see him taking the Cameron road and work only on "Transformers" films. As a fan of his work, I hope to see more original projects from him. Big-budget, low budget, doesn't matter. As long as it's not "Transformers 10".
Your thoughts on the matter, S4TE? Is Michael "too married" to "Transformers"?
