UPDATE: Courtesy ofÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â JoBlo, Michael Bay chimed in over at his official forums saying, “Studio’s are passing rumors but I’m not sure what I’m doing? I know I’m going to do Pain and Gain early spring but that’s it for right now. I’m leaving all my options on the table. I’ve got several Studio meetings in the next two weeks.”
This has become way too confusing…just make up your minds already!!!
