'Transformers 3' will release in 2012, not 2011
Michael Bay says Paramount botched announcement
While Paramount announced yesterday that "Transformers 3" would bow on July 1, 2011, director Michael Bay disputes that in a comment on his blog shootfortheedit.com:
"I said I was taking off a year from Transformers. Paramount made a mistake in dating Transformers 3 - they asked me on the phone - I said yes to July 4 - but for 2012 - whoops! Not 2011!!! That would mean I would have to start prep in September. No way. My brain needs a break from fighting robots."
