Michael Bay to be with Paramount for 3 More Years

It seems like Paramount has struck up another deal with the explosion loving Michael Bay. This time it will last for 3 years and will include not only his production company, Platinum Dune, but also his Bay Films company in the deal. The Wrap has reported that Paramount’s CEO, Brad Grey, says that With an ever-growing, worldwide fan base, Michael is truly one of the most inspired and beloved filmmakers of our time. We take great pride in the fact that Michael is part of the Paramount family and we look forward to growing our productive and successful partnership.”  With “Age of Extinction” bringing in over $900 million, why wouldn’t they want him directing more of the Transformers movies?

In one of his interviews, on the new deal with Paramount, Bay had this to say:

“Over the years I have become part of the Paramount family. There is a synergy there that feels different than any other place in Hollywood. From Brad Grey and Rob Moore, where my relationship goes back more than a decade, to my very good friendAdam Goodman, and to Philippe Dauman, who has put so much trust in me, and with the powerful marketing of Josh Greenstein and Megan Colligan, Paramount makes for a very comfortable place to work.”
