While Michael Bay has found success in the action and sci-fi genres, he has never tackled a horror movie as a director. During a recent interview, the filmmaker revealed that may change some day.
"I have a great fantasy - that I will probably make a reality - of directing my own self-financed horror movie. I love this genre because the movie is the star."
Of course, Michael Bay is no stranger to the genre, producing horror remakes such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Amityville Horror, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street, along with this year's low-budget hit The Purge through his Platinum Dunes production company. He is also developing Halloween III, a project his company picked up back in April 2012.
The filmmaker also spoke about some of his horror favorites.
"Some of my favorites include The Exorcist and The Shining. These are movies that stand the test of time."
