'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' director Michael Bay is keen to take a break from making action films
Michael Bay is fed up of 'Transformers' movies.
The 44-year-old director - who has worked on both of the action-filled blockbusters - is desperate to take a break from the franchise and work on something "totally divergent".
He said: "It's like Jerry Bruckheimer said, 'You've got to do your franchise when you've got the change.'
"But after the three-and-a-half years I've spent doing these movies I feel like I've had enough of the 'Transformers' world. I need to do something totally divergent, something without any explosions."
Although Michael is desperate to avoid the high-octane scenes found in most of his blockbusters - including 'Pearl Harbor, 'Armageddon' and 'Bad Boys' - he says he has found it hard to avoid violence altogether.
Speaking about an upcoming project, he explained: "It's very 'Pulp Fiction-y'. It's just real characters and very little action. Zero explosions. Although one guy does pour gasoline over another guy and sets him on fire."
