Despite a press release from Universal Studios saying that Michael Bay had approved their upcoming Transformers theme park attraction, Bay announced via his own blog that he isn't yet happy with what they have presented him. In an official statement, the director said:
"The Transformer Ride at Universal making all the press rounds - not sure yet - they had me in a press release saying I supported it - but Universal has a long way to go in my mind. I don't support it yet - I'm not involved and not sure the story of the ride works, and I know Optimus is not going to just show up to be directed by some new people that have never worked with him. I hate when people bullshit a quote from me that I never said. I'll keep you informed. Maybe the guy making the rides at Universal will direct Transformers 3????"
The Transformers Universal theme park attraction is set for a 2011 premier date.
